Students Benefit From Community Giving on #GivingTuesday

GLCPS joined the #GivingTuesday movement for the first time this year, asking for dollars for students, and you responded in a big way! We even raised enough to match a challenge gift from an anonymous supporter. If somehow you missed it, there is still plenty of time to check out our special webpage and donation site for this very special occasion:

November News Update from Executive Director Stephen Furtado

It’s hard to believe that we have already completed one quarter of the school year. I would like to bring you up to date on a few things that I mentioned last month. First, our new enrollment policy has been approved by the Commissioner of Education. We will begin accepting applications for students who wish to enroll in next year’s grades 9 and 10, as well as grades 5 through 8, on December 1.  Our lottery will be held on March 8 at 6:00 PM. You will soon see a sign on our school that will inform the public that applications will be accepted for grades 5-10. Applications will be available on our website. Please let family and friends know of this important change in our policy.

Read-a-thon at GLCPS A Community Affair

For a few hours on a recent afternoon, we all set aside what we were working on, picked up a book, and read. It was the 2nd Annual GLCPS Read-a-thon, and the event held November 8th raised over $2,000 to purchase books for the school; books that the students will choose themselves. It is part of an ongoing effort to encourage students to spend more time reading.

Did you know?

For many GLCPS students, persevering in and paying for college is very challenging. Your investment in GLCPS helps these students to stay in college. GLCPS continues to strengthen its College and Career Center by integrating college planning into all grade levels, providing more information to parents about college funding, and working more closely with students on college choice. The Mentoring for College Success program for GLCPS college-bound high school students, and the GLCPS Alumni Program offer ongoing support to GLCPS graduates. At GLCPS, families can begin planning for the future when they enter the school, and the support continues long after graduation.
