GCA Family and Friends, On behalf of the Administration and Aber family, thank you for your incredible generosity today! By 4:00 Friday afternoon our lobby was filled with water bottles, diapers, sheets, towels, etc. Mr. Aber needed to rent a truck instead of a U-Haul trailer in order to load everything that was brought in. Many of you also donated to his Go Fund Me account to help make this trip possible and brought in gift cards and other donations. When the GCA family shows up, they show up in a big way! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you have done!
"The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.' - Matthew 25:40
The 2017/18 school year has officially kicked-off! There was a lot of excitement in the air today as our school hallways were once again filled with our awesome Gator students!
In our Beginnings Academy (Preschool 2.5 -Kindergarten), students toted in new nap mats and backpacks half their size as more than one teary eyed parent watched their little one start their first day of school ever. In Foundations Academy (1st-3rd), students joined their teachers at drop off, being welcomed by hugs and smiles from classmates. In Bridge Academy (4th – 6th), students entered the new world of second story classrooms and for 6th graders, lockers! In our Collegiate Academy (7th-12th), students started the day in the gym, being introduced to the Collegiate Academy Faculty and Staff before hearing from our Founder and Superintendent, Dr. White. Collegiate students then signed their Honor Code Pledge, received their schedules, and were on their way!
As we begin another year, we are thankful for the many students who spend their school days with us and for the parents and families who invest in their children at GCA. Thank you for your partnership and prayers! Go Gators!
We are so proud to announce one of our Kindergartners is joining fellow Gators John (3rd grade) and Madison (4th grade) in the category of "State Handwriting Winner" for their respective grade levels in the National Zaner-Bloser Handwriting Competition!
Every year schools across the nation review handwriting samples from their students and submit one per grade level for the National Zaner-Bloser Handwriting Competition. Three of our Gators were selected as Virginia State Winners in their respective grade levels! This year marks the 26th national handwriting contest and saw over 275,000 students participating.
Thursday evening GCA celebrated as our Kindergartners “graduated” to first grade! Kindergarten classes have been preparing to wow parents at their graduation ceremony with a program recapping the many things they learned over the year. Students sung original music and each had a turn at the microphone, sharing something special from the year.
The program concluded with students donning cap and gown, receiving their Kindergarten diplomas as teary eyed parents snapped pictures and cheered for their graduate!
Tomorrow, we will celebrate the graduation of the GCA Class of 2017. Fourteen of this year’s graduates have attended GCA since Kindergarten (twelve since Preschool!). It is our great honor to be a part of the foundation that will shape a student’s life. We praise God for the many students and families we have served over the years.
Preschool students in our Beginnings Academy showered their Mothers with love during their annual Mother’s Tea! Guests were treated to songs and gift artwork by their little ones, followed by a time of fellowship over cookies, fruit, tea, and lemonade! Our littlest Gators have loved preparing for this special event and keeping the sweet songs a surprise for their moms!
Mrs. Cindy Jessee spoke with guests and shared wisdom she has gained through her years of being a preschool educator, mom, and now grandmother!
What a wonderful morning for our families!
