Third Grade Music Performance

Under the direction of GDW Music Teachers, Miss Crater and Ms. Ritchie, our third grade students put on a fabulous music performance this evening entitled, "Road Trip U.S.A."!  During the performance, Mrs. Frint's class dedicated a song to her since this was her final music performance before she retires at the end of this school year.  What a special event!

Oh, My! Our Principals Got Pied!

As an incentive for our Wildcat Learning Community raising approximately $36,000 in support of this year's PTO Walk-a-thon, our Wildcat students earned the opportunity to "pie" Principal Gravel and Assistant Principal Cappas during grade-level assemblies.  During the assemblies, we shared in many laughs and used just as many cans of Reddi Whip in the process!  We would like to thank everyone for their support of the Walk-a-thon!  Thank you, GDW PTO,  for assisting throughout the assemblies and for all that you do to support our school!
