Any rising 3rd - 8th grader can try out for the GCS ARMES (Art Reaching Middle and Elementary Students) program. Students are identified as Artistic Gifted and Talented and served through an after school program at the Fine Arts Center.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT AREAS? Strings, Art, Dance, Creative Writing and Drama. Students may be nominated and audition for as many areas as they have interest but once accepted into the program, can only participate in one area per year. A separate nomination form for each discipline is required.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE? Rising 3rd – 8th graders for the 2021 - 2022
HOW DOES THE PROCESS WORK? Anyone can nominate a student, including teachers, parents, other adults, or self. Go to the ARMES website and click on the link, “ARMES NOMINATION” and complete the online nomination.
Want to give your child a special birthday shout out? Have they reached a special goal or achieved an accomplishment that you want to celebrate? Purchase a Thumbs Up Thursday Shout Out for $1 and we will give a Thumbs Up shout out to your child on our morning news show for the entire school to hear! This year, shout outs will be announced on Thursdays. If your child misses the announcement, or you want to view it, you can find news episodes on our ENN website to watch online. Complete the Thumbs Up Thursday Shout Out Google Form to purchase a shout out and send the $1 payment to the office in an envelope labeled ENN Shout Out. Both the form and the payment must be received 48 hours prior to the shout out date selected to air since we are recording our news shows in advance this year due to scheduling.
