Our middle school students had some furry visitors today! Sgt.Harrell and some other members of the CSPD Bomb Squad brought a few of their partners from the K9 unit to demonstrate how they search for a wide array of items to include bombs (no actual bombs were present😁) Check out the quick videos as well! ...

I am thankful for the support shown to the board during a crazy transition period in which we turned the staff's life upside down. I am thankful that the staff shows so much love and dedication to their profession and the kids in their care.
I am truly thankful for the amazing teachers and staff that pour their hearts ♥️ into my boys everyday! As a mom this fills my heart with joy! I am also thankful for the incredible team I work with at GPA! I look forward to seeing my coworkers and students everyday! I am so thankful for my students and their parents who selflessly volunteer their time! Thanks to our outstanding PTO who spoil us and our School Board that takes great care of our school with their vision and decisions!
It is really impossible for me to express my gratitude for the people at Grand Peak. Our family is new to GPA this year; and making the decision last summer to change schools was a huge, difficult decision for our family because we were very happy at our former school. That being said, we have been incredibly blessed at Grand Peak, and I could not be more thankful that we chose to make the move. My kids have amazing teachers in Mrs. Kelsey Schuman and Ms. Young. They have helped guide my kiddos in the transition to a new school; they have answered all of my questions, even the ridiculous ones; and most importantly, they have loved my kids and made them excited to go to school (and if you knew us last year, you would know this is a HUGE step for my daughter). The same praise should be lavished on the front staff, especially Chelsea, who NEVER makes me feel like an inconvenience as I try to learn the ins and outs of a new place. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You have blessed the Krzych family beyond measure!
I am thankful for the amazing staff at GPA! We have had amazing, caring and loving teachers all 9 years we have been a part of the school. My kids have had a wonderful education thanks to Mrs. Ralston, Mrs. Costantino, Mr. Speer, Mrs. Baldwin and Mr. Lieberman. I also appreciate the office staff, they are super helpful and kind anytime we are in the office! Thank you to all the GPA staff!
My family is thankful for all of the teachers who have played a big part of Ryan and Alissa's learning and development. I appreciate the PTO who work so diligently every year to plan, fund, and execute activities for the PGA families. I am thankful for Chelsea and the rest of the front office, Mr. Hunter and Mr. Spear. You listen to my concerns and help come to a feasible outcome. Thank y'all.
I’m thankful for teachers and staff that truly get to know our children and are so willingly participate in their development. I appreciate their commitment to the school and its success, coming to work on weekends and holidays to decorate rooms, ensure our community commitments are met, stand up a sports camp, and make sure we take care of our own. My family has made some of the best friends we could ask for through GPA and we couldn’t be more thankful for their friendship and support. Happy Thanksgiving to the entire GPA community!
I have been extremely thankful for both teachers our son has had in the two years we’ve been at GPA. This year I want to give a big shout out to Mrs. Haslinger as my husband was in the hospital for three weeks in Sept/Oct due to a gun shot wound. Life has been exponentially tough and turned upside down for our family. But, with her support she’s helped us keep our son on track. And kept my brain straight when I’ve forgotten more then usual. Just very thankful for her kind spirit and knowledge. Along with so many more teachers, the creativity and professionalism this school presents. Happy thanksgiving!
I am thankful to all of the teachers at GPA, especially my children's teachers (and I know there are a lot of you to include the office, Ms. Engebrecht, and paraprofessionals). Thank you. Laugh and eat an extra piece of pie this Thanksgiving!
I'm very thankful that we've had wonderful teachers each year who are always available and helpful for my oldest. We are especially grateful that the preschool was able to accommodate our youngest. Ms. Lucero and Mrs. Wimberly are making a beautiful impact on my four year old. Lastly, I'm ever so thankful to Chelsea, she has a lot come across her desk daily and her cheerful smile is always such a pleasure to see! 🦃☺️
Over the 11 years we have attended GPA our kids have been poured into and poured into and poured into! Mark and I are so very thankful for all of the board, staff, and teachers! What each of you do makes a large difference in the lives of us/ours and others! May each of you be blessed this Thanksgiving season! Thanks so very much!!
I am thankful for the amazing staff and teachers and the counselor. They have been amazing to my family who is going through some medical issues. The never miss a beat and treat my girl like they would their own. I am beyond amazed by this school the staff and the students. Thank you for being amazing
I am thankful for an administration that sees potential in people and gives them wings to fly. GPA will always have a special place in my heart as the place I got my start.
I am thankful to have a school where I not only feel blessed to get to teach everyday but that I can wholeheartedly say is the best place to send our girls. They love their teachers so much and it’s incredible to see them grow with the help of their amazing teachers. We are so grateful to have this school as part of our family
I am thankful my friend told me about this school over 8 years ago. My oldest needed it. We are so thankful for the love, attention, and so much more given to him and now my youngest. We are thankful that through some very difficult times, teachers and staff have supported us more than we could ever ask for! I am so very thankful for the continued support and love! I am especially thankful for Angie Schlemmer-Ragsdale whom I love with all my heart, as do my children. I am beyond blessed and have no words for what she truly means to our family. Thank you to the school board for taking us thru a very (understatement) difficult transition to be the school we are now. Thank you to all the teachers who still so warmly greet my oldest when he comes back for visits! <3 You ALL!!
I am so thankful for everyone at GPA who helps my son continue to grow. He loves school and his teachers.
I am so very grateful for a school, administration, and fellow teachers who welcomed me back with open arms. I’m grateful for the open communication from administration and for the encouragement I receive daily as a professional. I’m grateful for my sweet students whose lives I have been entrusted with this year and last but not least my students in the past who are now in our middle school; I’m blessed to see you!
I'm thankful for the years we have been blessed with, and the years to come, that my children are attending this school. They are loved and supported. It is the strongest words of a mother to say I feel my children are so safe here every day. The staff from top to bottom makes us feel like family, and we have formed life long friendships from this community.
I am very thankful for GPA, especially my daughter's amazing teacher, Mrs. Young!!!
I am thankful for the new building! But I am most thankful for all of the teachers and staff that make GPA the greatest school!
My family is thankful for all our teachers and their continual pouring out to our Students on a daily basis. Amanda Ralston, Susan Ottersberg Haslinger, Christina Whitney Young, Courtney Hall, and Viola Lee. We are so grateful for you! Also to our amazing staff, and front office gals who always greet you with a smile and are willing to help with anything.
