American Education Week – November 15-19, 2021

We Are #GCSStrong!

Whatever role you play in educating students - teacher, aide, bus driver, nurse, administrator, counselor, or custodian – you are a vital link to every child's success! To honor our amazing staff, we are celebrating American Education Week November 15-19, 2021. This week is set aside to shine a light on those who give selflessly each day to ensure success for every child.

As part of our American Education Week campaign, we are encouraging employees to share words of gratitude with their peers by writing personal messages on #GCSStrong postcards to let them know they are appreciated, and to share a photo of themselves with this person on social media using the hashtag #GCSStrong! We will post stories on our website and on GCS social media to honor our dedicated staff members.

During the week, we will celebrate the 10,000-plus GCS staff members who are keeping students engaged, responding to social-emotional needs, providing meals, developing and improving technical skills, transporting them to clean, safe school buildings, connecting families to schools virtually, and developing out-of-the-box solutions to whatever unique circumstances each child faces.

We will recognize employees each day of the week in the following categories:

  • Monday – School Support Staff
  • Tuesday – Transportation Staff
  • Wednesday – Educators
  • Thursday – Operations and Maintenance Staff
  • Friday – District Staff
