GCCNS Events


Mon-Fri, April 9th-20th – Create a Library Book Drive

The students in Mrs Kiraly’s Child Development Class have initiated a Spring Service Project and they would love the support of the incredible children and families at GCCNS.
Their special service project is to create a classroom library for a primary class at Andrew Cooke Magnet Elementary School in Waukegan. Imagine a classroom without books! Let’s help these children have access to the wonderful world of reading by donating our new or gently used books.
Book boxes will be by the playground entrances, in the stairwell entry. We will also have Book Drive boxes at the Family Festivals. As part of your Family Festival experience, please encourage your children to bring books to donate to GCCNS on the evening of their Family Festival event.
