Parent Day
The 4th graders recently participated in "Rethink Your Drink". They discussed prioritizing water and how the sugar content in other drinks can add up quickly. They talked about the importance of staying hydrated and completed activities such as dancing to the theme song and making cards to give to a loved one about the importance of water.

School bus transportation plays a critical role in the education of our nation's students and is the direct link between a neighborhood and the classroom. Each day, GCS transports approximately 2,925 students an estimated 4,570 miles -- a distance comparable to driving across the U.S. and more than halfway back. National School Bus Safety Week reminds us all to keep school bus safety at the forefront.

October is National Bullying Awareness Month.
