A Message from Our Principal

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome back! What an amazing start of the year at GCE. I have a feeling that the 2018-2019 school year may be the best yet! This year, I have asked the staff to start each week with "Monday Marbles." Each classroom has a jar with 36 marbles in it. The teacher will pull one marble out each week and ask the students the following three questions:

  1. What will you do to become a better student?
  2. How will you become a more productive citizen?
  3. Can you do something this week to become a better person?

The next week there are only 35 marbles left, and we will continue until the last marble is removed. Our students only have 36 weeks this school year to become a better student, a more productive citizen, and a better person. From one parent to the next, I challenge you to ask similar questions of yourself. Change the word student to parent/guardian and the challenge works for you too. I have told our students not to waste any of the time we have together this year. Life is too short to miss any opportunity to become a better person.

Have a great week!

Your proud GCE Principal,

Todd Hearne
