Sixth-grade students continuing at GLC for Middle School do not need to submit transfers or other paperwork. Students planning to attend their school of residence for 7th or 9th grade also do not need to submit transfers.

Yearbook Cover and Title Page Contest

This year, we are holding a contest to identify this year's yearbook cover and title pages. Each grade level will have one design selected as their title divider, while the yearbook cover will be selected from a 7th or 8th-grade student submission. Designs must be painted on 9" x 12" paper. Submissions are due by dismissal time on Monday, February 7.

Open enrollment for the 2022-23 school year closes in just two (2) weeks. Current families with incoming kindergartners must complete an Enrollment Request Form for their child. After Open Enrollment, new applicants will be placed on a waiting list if no seats are available.
