A Principal's Perspective

Next week is National Teacher Appreciation Week! As a campus leader, it is important to me to honor each staff member for the tremendous work that you do to educate a child. As we take time each day next week to say thank you to each GP staff member, I hope that you as an educator feel that gratitude each day throughout the school year - not just one week. What you do to shape our future is important work that can't be matched! Thank you!

2015, Bring It!
