Global Karate Academy (GKA) is expanding its schedule to accommodate growing interest in the program. GKA is committed to helping as many students as possible reach their goals and foster a lasting connection with our Global Learning Charter Public School (GLCPS) family.
The students in Maria Lehning's 8th grade history class were happy to demonstrate how they're using their new Smart TV to learn about history to their special guest recently. Bristol County District Attorney Thomas Quinn visited the school to meet Ms. Lehning's students, and learn about how they were using their new technology tool.
High school history teacher Heidi Eastman has another accomplishment to add to a long list; and, all with the best interests of GLCPS students in mind. Recently, professors from the University of Glasgow in Scotland, visited the Jacobs Center, GLCPS’ downtown campus, at the invitation of Ms. Eastman. During their visit to New Bedford, the educators met with students and teachers, as well as Executive Director Stephen Furtado and Principal Lena Pires.
Students with no internet access at home no longer have to search for Wi-Fi to complete their assignments at home. The school applied for and received a Homework Gap Grant from the wireless provider Kajeet® for a ten-unit SmartSpot® solution which provides safe mobile, connectivity to help students access the internet. GLCPS is one of only 30 schools nationwide to receive the grant.
