A Message From Principal Pires

Welcome to the 2018-19 School Year. I love how everything feels so fresh and new: new friends, new teachers, fresh starts. It's also the perfect time to write down some goals. One of my big goals is to get more families and community members involved with GLCPS. We are a TEAM with a GOAL of supporting every child's academic journey. Some ways you can get involved include joining the PTO, joining me on the Principal's Council, and attending meetings of the Special Education Parent Advisory Council. Also, look for ways to get involved in the coming months by volunteering at school events, such as the Cultural Bazaar. Let me know how you think I can strengthen our connection by emailing me
Now, bring on the new school year!
