By June 18, 2019 No Comments

It is an exciting time of year as we celebrate our students who have reached a major milestone and begun their next big chapter. As our 2018-2019 school year came to a close, I had the honor of attending and participating in nineteen of our GUSD schools’ awards nights, promotion ceremonies, and graduation ceremonies.

We applaud the success of our students and we thank our community of teachers, staff, parents, families, and friends who supported them throughout the year.

Congratulations to our GUSD Class of 2019!
