Wrapping Up

GCA Family,

The end of the school year is approaching at quite a pace. I know there is likely some anxiety associated with finishing a school year, taking exams, receiving report cards, and planning for another grade level, but I am excited to celebrate the achievements of our students as they complete the 2021-2022 school year.


This newsletter is full of details regarding the events at the end of the year that are designed to allow us to rejoice in the accomplishments of our GCA family.

Head of School

Awards day will not be a traditional day of school with a start time and a dismissal time. Rather, we will have a drop-in celebration for parents and students. Parents may accompany their students to school anytime between 9:00 and 11:00. While you are here, we will have pastries, coffee, juice, and milk so you can have breakfast or a snack with your student. You will also have the opportunity to receive your students’ report cards and awards from their teachers. Pre-school and elementary teachers will be in the school cafeteria while middle school and high school teachers will be in the Gateway Church lobby.


We hope this will be a memorable time for you and your students and that we can let you know how great your students have done this year.
