NEWS AND UPDATES
Preschool for the 2023-24 school year will begin on Wednesday, August 9, for half of our students and Thursday, August 10 for the other half. We believe this will provide an easier transition for these first-time students and also give their teachers a better opportunity to get to know them individually as they begin the school year.
Teachers will let parents know which day their child will attend in mid-July and partner with our transportation department to make sure bus riders are picked up on their assigned day. All preschool students will attend Mon – Thurs, 7:30 am - 2:30 pm following the first week.

Enroll your child (ages 0- 5) now to receive a new book every month at no cost.
Research shows a strong connection between parent involvement and children’s academic success. In fact, studies have shown that the earlier in a child’s educational process parent involvement begins, the more powerful the impact.
GCS plans various parent involvement events throughout the school year. Make sure you are communicating frequently with your child’s teacher and following your child's school and the district on social media platforms.
We would love to have you involved in our program!
Each preschooler will be visited at home by his/her preschool teacher twice during the school year. Teachers will schedule a home visit each semester to discuss your child's progress and to share your child’s preschool experiences.
Volunteering in your child’s classroom
Volunteers are welcome and needed to spend time in the classroom or work at home by preparing classroom activities.
Your help will be greatly appreciated!
