College Bound
GGUSD is celebrating our college-bound students with a new website that highlights photos of graduating seniors along with their college and career plans.  The website features College Signing Day events held at the district’s seven comprehensive high schools over the past month. Our high school seniors are going places! 

The Gratitude Project 
Last week, sixth grade students from Murdy Elementary School concluded a yearlong study about the power of gratitude with a special celebration that honored a group of heroes who have overcome life’s greatest challenges.

The celebration was a culminating event of “The Gratitude Project,” where students shared what they learned about gratitude from interviews with 97-year-old Tuskegee Airman and U.S. veteran Lt. Col. Robert J. Friend, Interpreter with the U.S. Special Forces Luc Lien Nguyen, and several others. Watch this powerful video to see for yourself the true power of gratitude.  
A Grand Slam Visit
Angels baseball pro Andrew Heaney pitched a message of hard work to students at Peters K-3 and 4-6 elementary schools this week. The visit was part of the Angels Adopt-A-School program. We're grateful for such a fantastic partnership that benefits our students.

Freshmen Take First Place

A team of GGUSD freshman students from Pacifica High School took home first place in their division at a statewide competition where students program robots to solve a series of problems.  After programming their robots to win ten separate challenges, the students won first place and best teamwork at the 7th Annual C-STEM Day and RoboPlay Competition at UC Davis on Saturday, May 20.
