2021-2022 EARLY ENROLLMENT DEADLINE – APRIL 30TH

We have begun online enrollments for the 2021-2022 school year. Some classes may fill quickly, so we encourage you to register early.  A registration fee of $275 per child must be paid before your registration can be processed. If we do not have that fee by April 30, 2021, you will have missed the early registration fee deadline.  All current families processed after April 30th will have to pay a fee of $325 per child as stated in your enrollment packet and on our website.  Thank you.

  2. Skirt/dress must come below the knee while sitting and standing; a slit must not come above the knee.

SUMMER EXTENSION PROGRAM

Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer our Summer Extension program again this summer, due to uncertainty regarding COVID19 re-openings throughout the state.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

 

MACS SPELLING BEE

Congratulations to the following students for their excellent performance at our Maryland Association of Christian Schools state-wide spelling bee, which was held at GBS on Friday, March 19th.

 

EARLY DISMISSAL POLICY

Parents, if possible, please call the School Office or send in a note if your child will be signed out before the end of the school day.  All visitors will need to come to the School Office and ring the doorbell and wait outside the gymnasium doors for assistance.  Thank you.

 

AFTERCARE

As a reminder, our aftercare program is currently operating at a reduced capacity due to the ongoing pandemic.  While aftercare is available for those who need it, we ask that aftercare be used only by those families who find it absolutely necessary.  Thank you!
