From the Principal

The juniors are traveling through New York to New England today. The annual New England Study Tour is well under way. The tour will conclude on Monday. When our students return to campus on Monday, our students will have just a little more than a week together before the seniors leave for their class trip. The school year is quickly coming to a close.

Final Exams - Semester examinations will be coming soon for seniors and just a few days later, all of our other students will be taking finals. Now is the time for end- of-the-year financial arrangements to be made. All students will have to have their financial accounts up to date in order to receive an exam permit. If this is going to be a challenge, please contact Mrs. Jenkins in our business office.

Senior Class Fund Raising - Last night our seniors were involved in telephone fund raising towards their class gift. This year the class is raising money for a new gazebo that will be placed near the front of the campus. For almost 20 years GCA had a gazebo on center campus. When construction started it went away. We are looking forward to the new gazebo that will be funded by the seniors. They are still raising funds, but in just one evening of making phone calls they raised $8000. Great work seniors!

I hope everyone is enjoying the warm weather and beautiful spring. Let's enjoy the longer days, but also stay focused on our responsibilities and resist the fever that goes with spring time. Time to finish strong!
