Statesmen High Five
Let's recognize our amazing teachers!

Marshall students have started a new recognition program for educators at GCM. The High Five program is a chance for students to let teachers know how much they appreciate them. So far, students have recognized GCM teachers for their caring, optimism, and efforts to help everyone succeed. The PTSA is proud to partner with students on this program highlighting the amazing efforts of the faculty and staff. Each month, all teachers who have been nominated for a High Five will be eligible to enter a drawing for a gift card as an extra thank you.
 
Please consider having your student nominate a teacher, counselor, or staff member today using the form below!
