The clean up and repair from the damage done during the tornadoes is under way. Many are asking about resources to help in the clean-up and the rebuilding process, below you can find information about programs that might be helpful to you.

Planning for Success in 2023-2024

It is that time of year when our school starts to look at data from this school year (2022-2023) and plan for next school year (2023-2024). As part of this planning process you will be invited to share your feedback about our school's Title I Parent and Family Engagement Policy, the School-Parent Compacts and the use of Title I Parent and Family Engagement funds. Make your voice count by attending a feedback meeting and by filling out the GSCS 2023 Spring Parent Survey. Look for more information about these opportunities coming soon.
