Our football program has a limited number of out of date football helmets available for sale. These helmets may not be used in competition but make great mementos and can even be turned into a lamp base! A unique gift for the Gator fan or GCA alumnus in your life. Helmets are $25 each with proceeds going toward the purchase of new equipment.
Please note: When purchasing, we will provide you a waiver stating you understand the helmet is not to be used in competition. Additionally, the interior components of the helmets have been removed.
Please contact Coach Austin to purchase yours today.
Miss Skeens and her fourth grade class welcomed master electrician Mr. Bob Burton as a guest speaker during their mini-unit on snap circuits. In addition to being a master electrician, Mr. Burton is a Navy and Vietnam veteran, grandfather of seven, and beloved father to our very own Miss Skeens!
Our fourth grade unit on electricity ended with the practical application of learning about and creating parallel and series circuits using the Snap Circuits set. Each student participated in helping Mr. Burton gather the components and put them in place on the snap circuit board. Mr. Burton also discussed safety and the differences between the snap circuits and actual house electricity. One of the devices powered a light bulb and one powered an alarm. Mr. Burton created a real life scenario where the device students created, a water alarm, would come in handy if a basement flooded or an air conditioner drain became plugged.

Eighth grader Louka Fetter has reclaimed the title of GCA School-wide Spelling Bee Champion today after eleven rounds of our school level Scripps National Spelling Bee competition. Louka previously held the title as a fourth grader and is excited to now have an opportunity to compete at the Regional Bee, which is only open to School Champions in grades sixth through eighth.
A few of the words Louka successfully spelled included vicissitudes, dragoon, labyrinthian, and his winning word of Kilimanjaro.
Congratulations, Louka! We will be cheering you on at the Regional Bee on February 17th!
