It’s Recruiting Season for 2015-2016!
The annual letter and brochure have gone out to all families at GCS with children currently in second and third grade – even those who have already joined! Please spread the word – Choir is fun! We already have the first interview scheduled!
Sometimes interesting rules and policies appear during recruiting time, but the basic creed is:
