We are so grateful for our amazing faculty and staff that have been working endlessly to keep our children safe and engaged—whether on-campus or virtual. It has been a unique and challenging year, but our Dragon community has proven what can be achieved when we all work together!

Although we cannot host many of our traditional Teacher Appreciation Week activities, the P&FA has developed some creative alternatives. If you would like to support the P&FA’s efforts in recognizing GCS’s wonderful faculty and staff, please consider one of the following programs.


Instead of the traditional buffet with families donating desserts, side dishes, snacks, and drinks, the P&FA has arranged to have individually packaged breakfast kits and deli lunch boxes professionally prepared for each faculty and staff member.

In lieu of making a food donation this year, treat a teacher to lunch. Support the P&FA’s efforts by donating a lunch box to one (or more!) of our fabulous faculty members using the form below.


Have your student create an original work of art for a special teacher, write a special letter of thanks, or share their gratitude in any way. Individual and heartfelt tokens of recognition are very special to our teachers, so please participate in whatever way you can.

In-person students should give their creations directly to their teachers; virtual students can email their creations to their teachers or drop them off during Friday materials pick-up.
