From the Principal:

Happy February to you all! I hope you take some time to read the events above, as we have some special activities, days off, and field trips for you to be aware of. It’s a busy month here at GNCS!


We had a fun Religious program and luncheon last week. Each student or class learned about a spiritual leader in history from all different faiths who have helped the Lord to shepherd and teach people how to live good lives. Mother Teresa, Confucius, Pope Francis, Buddha, Martin Luther, Emanuel Swedenborg, Mohammed, Jesus (the Lord on earth), and Moses were some of the leaders we learned about. Many thanks to Brannon Smith, Evelyn’s dad, for cooking and organizing the tasty lunch. We also appreciated our parent and grandparent and senior friends who were able to join us.


By now, you have received re-enrollment materials for the 2016-2017 school year. Parents of younger students have an opportunity to tour and informally  visit with the teachers for next year in the younger grades on Monday night at 6:30 PM. We hope you come to look around the classrooms, meet the teachers, and ask any questions you may have.


Re-enrollment forms due March 1:  We hope to have re-enrollment complete by March 1st this year for planning purposes. Applications for financial aid can take place any time on the FACTS portal.


Open House: On February 8th, the school will be opening up its doors for an Open House to show off our teachers, our classrooms and our fantastic grounds.  We will be holding open house sessions in the morning from  10:30 am - 12:00 pm and in the evening from 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm.  This is a great opportunity for you to invite your friends to see our wonderful school.  The most effective way for our school to grow is through word of mouth.  Tell your friends what you genuinely love about this school and invite them to come see for themselves.  Here are the details of our event:
