Town Hall

The GCCP community gathers one Friday each month to celebrate our achievements and to address important issues facing our school, our city, and our community. Town Hall is a required part of school.  Town halls in the past have included performances from our chorus, band, and dance groups, student lead presentations on trips or activities, as well as student assemblies for recognition of merits and quarterly prizes. We invite parents/guardians and members of the public to attend. Town Halls generally happen on the last day of every quarter. Check newsletters for specific days and times.
