We did it! Teachers, administration and parents finished the school year with great success. Parents were warmly welcomed back inside GPS this Spring and our halls are once again filled with happy voices and family hugs.COVID19 procedures are still a top priority and we are excited to welcome students back for a fun-filled, safe summer. Enrollment for Summer Camp and the 2021-22 School Year is still available and we look forward to welcoming back returning and new families.
The Junior Kindergarten classrooms went on a bird watching walking field trip to look for cardinals, robins, red-winged blackbirds, mallards, geese and of course (golden) ducks! Students came prepared with their self-made binoculars and clipboards to record their findings. Back in the classroom they will review and discuss their observations and graph their data. We have lots of future scientists in our school!

GPS is Going Green this summer with exciting new themes developed to excite your child's sense of wonder and curiosity as we explore earth! Campers, ages 18 months - 9 years, will investigate, create and experiment while developing an appreciation of nature and becoming champions of the planet. Campers can explore themes including: Enchanted Forest, In The Garden, Oceans of Fun, Geology Rocks and our popular Reading Camp for rising Kindergarten - 1st Grades. New this year are 2-week sessions to help reduce exposure.
The Preschool Enrichment explored Ocean Life, Flowers and Animals while enjoying social time with their friends after their morning Preschool Program ended at 11:30am.
