Did you know that just by saving "Box Tops for Education" coupons our school could receive as much as $20,000??? Its easy....all you have to do is save, cut and turn in your box tops to GCA.   Please start collecting NOW as we will be able to send them in for $$$$ in March.

5th Grade Winter Festival Project

The 5th grade class needs your help!  They need plastic bottle caps for a school project. Soda, water, Gatorade, any kind of plastic cap!  They need a lot!! 

Please save them and turn them into the office when you get a bag full.

Many, many thanks to the GCA Grandparent's Club (know as the GCA Grans) for the beautiful new "welcome" banner in the gym.  It looks amazing and we are so proud of it!

If you are a grandparent and would like to get involved with this great group, please contact Judy Davis at 246-6525.

News: School Entry Change starting Aug. 24th

Due to security and control over who is coming and going from the school, the front doors facing Lake Douglas Road will now be locked at all times.  If you are a parent of a K3 student or a K4 early care student, you will be asked to enter the side porch (church door) of the K3 hall.  If your student is a 3rd grader, they have the option of coming in the side porch or using the front GCA doors.  The side porch (church door) will be locked at 8:00 a.m.  All other students, parents, etc. will be asked to enter the building through the front GCA doors or the side doors by the K5 classroom.  We understand this might be an inconvenience; however, the safety and security of all of our students, faculty and staff are our top priority.
