Greenville CSD - where everyone Learns, Teaches, Belongs! Spartan STRONG!
August 27, 2020
I hope the final weeks of summer provide opportunities for play, laughter, and relaxation!
As we move closer to September, parents can set their children up for success by using the final weeks of August to prepare for the school year. It often takes children one to two weeks to become acclimated to earlier bedtimes, reduced screen time, and morning routines, so please begin these transitions as soon as possible.
This year is unlike any other, and many of our regular routines have been disrupted. Please use the following calendar of upcoming events for guidance about information that will be sent via mail/email, and when families should plan to come to GCS for student materials:
