We will be having a day at the park. Join us for field games with your teachers, nature hikes, meet and greet fun, games and dancing! We will learn all about nature and connect you with your GCA friends! Be sure to dress for the outdoors, pack sunscreen and lots of water. Feel free to bring a picnic lunch! We will also have a Q&A for transition from Elementary to Middle School and Middle School to High School with our Family Support Team and staff at the Magnolia Hall during the event. There is no cost to this event and it is open to everyone.
At 12:30 we will host our Middle School transition meeting at Magnolia Hall.
Meet us behind the active oval located on the map. We will be under the pavilion, you will see a DJ and teachers with orange polos at the site. Please enter the back way of the park. You may enter from Piedmont but will have to walk across the park and in the active oval to get to us. We will be near area 10 on the map, behind the active oval in the pavilion area near the playground. Please park at area 3 and walk over. There is also street parking all around the park, but try to be closest to where area 10 would be. Park drive area 23 is also a close entrance to where we will be.
Fun event notes:
Wear red!!!! This will make it easier for staff and students to identify you at an event. Decorate it with fun items and make it your own! Orange is fine as well.
Wear a name tag!!!! Put your city name and grade on the tag so you can find out who lives in your community
Please arrive no earlier than 10:40 for check in and have your form filled out completely! Staff will greet you at the pavilion entrance with a clipboard.

Take time to make a friend! Introduce yourself to 3 people before leaving
Pack a lunch, and dress for the outdoors!
Always bring lots of water and wear sunscreen, bug spray may be helpful for outside events
Any parking fees or extra activities not provided by GCA would be the responsibility of the parent
All events require a liability release form, please also fill out the photo release form as well
Kmail your teacher! Many ask if there teacher is at their specific event, but an easy way to find out where they will be and what event you can meet them at is to kmail them prior to the event to make sure they will be there. There will be teachers all over for you to meet, but if you want to know in advance if your teacher will be there, please reach out to them to find out and set a time and meeting place with them
Brings blankets and chairs if you plan to picnic in the outdoors in case there is limited seating :)
Have fun! These events are for you to celebrate your success for this school year! Come out and enjoy your GCA friends and make more!
