GCS welcomes Alfie Kohn as the guest speaker for the first 2018-2019 Dragon Dialogues series. The program, Pushed Too Hard—Parenting in an Achievement-Crazy Culture encourages attendees to rethink basic assumptions about competition, school achievement, and the relationship between how we’re raising our kids and how we hope they’ll turn out.
On Saturday, December 1, GCS hosted the annual World’s Fair and First Lego League Maryland Qualifier. The event celebrated the diversity and talent of our school community and provided an opportunity for a festive and dynamic collaboration between students, teachers, staff, and parents.
Through the generosity of the Dragon Dialogue committee, on November 28, our 8th grade and 11th grade U.S. History students had an opportunity to host Thomas Jefferson—as portrayed by Steve Edenbo, a member of the American Historical Theatre.
A special congratulations to our very own Deb DeVoe (2nd Grade Teacher) who was a featured author at the Barnes and Noble Book Fair on Thursday evening. Ms. DeVoe recently published her first book, Ballet Busters Leap Into the First Nutcracker.
On Wednesday, October 24, the Marshall Legacy Institute celebrated 21 years of commitment, dedication, and progress towards a mine-safe world at the Clearing the Path Gala. GCS family members, John and Paula Marschall along with their two sons, Josef ’22 and Jon-Paul ’24, were honored with the CHAMPS Family of the Year Award for their selfless dedication and tireless work on behalf of MLI.
