Christmas in July

Thank you to the Hancock County Community Foundation for selecting GCSF to receive a $8,100 Capacity Building Grant.

The generous grant will be used to create a marketing and branding plan to inspire our community with the importance of our vision and mission in order to create powerful results for G-C students, educators and schools.

The grant was presented by HCCF, donors and Santa at a Christmas in July tour of community nonprofits.

GCSF is indeed grateful for the grant and our partnership with HCCF.

ARROW

 

 

 

 

 

G-CHS Leaders to Go students challenged GCJHS students involved in Project ARROW to quickly follow the Ship Captain’s commands!  The center picture is “Man-Overboard” where teams of 2 search the sea. The right picture is “4 Men Rowing” where teams of 4 row a life boat together.  Students scrambled to create teams as directed…followed by discussions about the value of teamwork!!  Thanks to all the students….great work!!

Project ARROW meets this semester for four sessions, two with Leaders to Go, a field trip to Butler University to participate in a Challenge Course and a final meeting at G-CHS including a tour for the Junior High Students.

ARROW is one of many school projects funded by the community through Greenfield Central School Foundation!
