A Note from the Principal's Desk

Week of April 4, 2016

Faculty and Staff Recognition

We missed Assistant Principals' Week last week. Join me in thanking the best APs in the GSCS for all of their hard work! Thanks Dr. Gardner and Ms. Douglas for the great job that you do! I appreciate you more than you know!

Thank you to everyone who helped with the Pep Rally.

I appreciate our Project SOAR teachers. They have been working with our students for the last month. (Ms. Goodman, Ms. Duke Wake, Ms. Mccoy, Ms. Holly, Mr. Veal, Ms. Davis, Ms. McCann). I know that it will make a difference for those students who attended.
