Another busy week at GCA. Last night our basketball teams played at home against the teams from Collegedale. Both games were good matches and our students played well. Perhaps many of you were able to see the games in person, or via streaming. Though our teams did not prevail (girls score CAYA 47 / GCA 42, guys CAYA 52 /GCA 41 ), they played well and demonstrated the type of Christian sportsmanship that makes us proud. Thank you to our teams for their hard work, and our coaches for their dedication and hard work.
Acrofest at Washington Adventist University - Our gymnastic team departed campus this morning for Acrofest. Every year students from Adventist academies and the colleges and universities gather to work together in refining their gymnastics skills. Teams perform and learn new skills. The program Saturday night at WAU will feature all of the teams. Our team will return Sunday in time for those who are involved in Sounds of the Seasons - the fundraiser dinner/performance for our instrumental music program.
Running/walking track nears completion - Sod is being laid in the area around our football field and our track. Much of the sod in the field area was necessary as part of moving the football field to the west in order to provide space for our new basketball court. The installation of lights that will illuminate the track at night is now almost finished. We will be painting lines on the outdoor basketball court soon. We are grateful for these new additions to our campus. We hope our students will put them to good use. We have raised just over $100,000 for these improvements and are grateful to the donors who have so generously supported GCA.
More work is being completed on our new gymnasium and student center. We will be updating the on-line galleries soon. The shape of our new student center is becoming visible. We are still on schedule to have our first graduation ceremony in our new gymnasium this coming May!
