At 8:45 tonight we hope you’ll join us uptown as we welcome home our newest state champion, Isaiah Chatman. He’ll get a fire truck and police escort into town so please line Sangamon and we’ll end at the high school. Help Isaiah celebrate that medal!
Isaiah Chatman is a STATE CHAMPION in the 300 hurdles!! WooHoo! What a way to end his senior year. Congrats, Isaiah; you make us #FalconProud

GCMS Family, We made it! 2020-2021 school year came with many challenges, obstacles, twists, and turns, but we have collectively weathered the storm and provided great in person learning opportunities for our children. Thank you to all who invested and took on this unique experience to do the best we could for our children. The 2020-2021 totals for COVID experience for GCMS are as follows: 120 Child Positive Cases 26 Staff Positive Cases 900 Child Quarantines 43 Staff Quarantines We are fortunate to report that we had minimal medical impact on the students and staff of GCMS. We also sympathize with those outside our system that were not so fortunate. As we close the door on 2020-2021 we look forward to entering 2021-2022 school year with a renewed focus, and expectation, for teaching and learning with all students back full time. We will refocus on the expectations of regular attendance, on time completion of work, and continuing the partnership with families to maintain safe and effective schools. Thank you for your patients and grace in 2020-2021! Get some rest over the summer and come back ready to hit the door running in August. You can expect some clarification on school guidance in late July or early August. Enjoy your summers! Sincerely, Jeremy Darnell firstname.lastname@example.org 217-784-8296
