Jason Field Celebration
Jason Field Celebration Huge Success!
Last Friday was such an amazing evening, as we celebrated the life of Jason Knaupp, and dedicated our newly renovated field to him. So many people showed up to enjoy the games, food trucks, and ribbon cutting ceremony. The support and love John and Mary Knaupp have shown for GCA and their remembrance of Jason (1971-1981) speaks volumes to the beauty of naming our field after their son. The field renovation has been a long process and we are so grateful to all our donors, past and present, who made this dream a reality. GCA students will enjoy the field for years to come, which is just what Jason would have wanted.

Have you been logging your volunteer hours? This is a reminder that you need 20 hours to be completed and logged by April 15th, or you will receive a charge on your bill.

Still need service hours? We have a few opportunities:

Volunteer help in setting up chairs in Davidson Center on Thursday afternoons at 2:30pm for chapel. This will count towards service hours for this school year until April 15. After that date, the hours can be counted towards next school year's hours. 

As more opportunities become available, we will let you know. Please reach out to your student's teachers as well...they can always use help!

The other facet of expectations is establishing an understanding of what our families can expect from the school.
