GCS Visited by Educators from the Ukraine

 
On Friday, GCS had the incredible honor of hosting two remarkable Christian School colleagues from Ukraine. Tatyana Chimakova is a Ukrainian educator and the director of the International Alliance for the Advancement of Christian Education, a group that supports Christian schools throughout Eastern Europe. Tanya Garkun is the director of My Horizons Christian School in Western Ukraine. Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the Christian schools in that country have been unable to carry on as their communities have been destroyed, families scattered throughout Europe, and all sense of normal obliterated. These educators have spent their mornings teaching and their afternoons protecting, rebuilding, and fighting for their communities. They have suffered horrific loss, persevered through impossible circumstances, and experienced unexpected blessings. Led by Julia Higgins Taylor, GCS has partnered with Tanya’s school to provide digital learning tools, digitally accessible curriculum, and all kinds of tips and suggestions that we learned as a result of over a year of hybrid learning caused by COVID. During their visit, these women shared their stories with our students and staff, heard our third graders pray over them, and watched our lower campus students worship in chapel! It was great to see our students bless them by sharing their joy. We are working to support these ministries through prayers and our professional resources and talents. We also encourage you to support Tanya’s school through PayPal and using the following email address - [email protected]

Upper Campus Locker Clean-Out

If you were assigned a locker, please have it totally cleaned out and wiped down by end of school on May 20, 2022. Please ask one of your teachers to check your locker once it is cleared and have them check you off as having a cleaned out locker. If you'd rather have Ms. DeBruhl check you off after school, she is available after 3:30 pm each day. Please email her at [email protected] to let her know what day you will be ready to have your locker checked. If you are not sure if you were assigned a locker, check your schedule on RenWeb, it will be listed there. If you have any question, stop by the front desk or email. Thank you!
