    Dynamic & Reflective Student Work

    Dear GCE family & friends:

    One simple and surprising way to warm up from this frigid cold is to learn about GCE by visiting GCE Voices, our Online Installations (OnIn) of student work. Each post features a guiding question, real-world scenario, and common core standards reference. Our students tell the story of their learning through scaffolded projects, integrating fundamental skill development with passion and experimentation.

    Winter Term Info

    Dear GCE Students & Families:

    Welcome to 2014 and Winter Term at GCE!

    We’re thrilled to see your children, our students, return to school eager to learn. The first few days have been filled with energy, creativity, and hands-on learning.  They’ve also been framed by terrifically unpleasant weather and the promise of more to come. So, please make sure that GCE students dress warmly, bring extra shoes (or slippers), and store extra clothes here if necessary.
