A Message to Our 8th Grade From Your Teachers and Principal Pires

School Mission Guides Us During Uncertain Times

     Our school community feels the pain, the anger, the frustration of first; a pandemic that has killed more than 400,000 people worldwide, including more than 100,000 US residents, and  which has disproportionately affected communities of color, and second; the tensions over racial inequality and injustice following the senseless killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and other people of color. 

     We see this as yet another pivotal moment to help create change. As a majority white staff at GLCPS, we remind ourselves that learning and growing begins with listening. We will build on the work that many of our educators are doing to promote social justice. We are doing this now through our grade level community meetings, guiding students in these conversations. We recognize that to continue to address inequality, we need to strengthen this work and we are committed to doing so.   

     Our mission statement is as important today as it was when our school’s founders wrote it. Our mission is to ensure that all students achieve academic excellence, are ready for the rigors of higher education, and master essential skills that prepare them for the economic, social and civic challenges of a 21st century, global society. Meeting these challenges necessitates a focus on social, economic, and environmental justice for all. Education is key in bending the ‘arc of justice' for current and future generations. GLCPS is committed to its place in this mission. 
Dr. Stephen Furtado
GLCPS Executive Director
