PARCC testing at GW will start the week of April 27, 2015 for grade 6. Seventh grade testing will be the week of May 4th, and 8th grade will be testing the week of May 11, 2015. These tests will be administered during the first two hours of each morning. Students should get a good night's sleep, eat a good breakfast, and come to school rested and relaxed. Students should also have at least one pencil, calculator (for the math portion of the tests), and headphones or earbuds for the audio portions of the tests.

Message from the GW HSA



Ever heard of STEM? STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.  These disciplines will be infused into every element of our children’s education from now until they enter the workforce! Eighty percent of all jobs created in the future will require Science, Technology, Engineering and Math skills!

Being on the leading edge is an option, but we need everyone’s help to get there! “The capacity of a school to provide truly enriching opportunities becomes more and more dependent on whether you can raise this extra money.”  Kevin G Welner, Professor of Education at University of Colorado.
