Attendance Awareness Month
The month of September is designated as Attendance Awareness Month to emphasize the importance of regular school attendance for all students. GCSS encourages our students to attend school daily - ready to learn and eager to be challenged academically. Students who attend school regularly are more likely to be better prepared in the classroom, make better grades, and have better test scores. We challenge each of our students to make it a priority to attend school each day during the month of September as well as throughout the school year. Regular attendance matters at GCSS! Are you ready for the challenge?
