As we prepare to step into the new year in 2020, we encourage parents/families to take this time to freshen up all school uniforms. All scholars are expected to return in January in FULL GLA UNIFORM. This includes sweaters/blazers, appropriate school shoes, etc. Please keep in mind that only GLA hoodies are permitted to be worn in the building (on gym/dance days or Fitness Friday's only). Please reach out to our uniform provider, Cramers, to purchase season-appropriate long-sleeved shirts, sweatpants, etc.
