Q: How will this bond help academic achievement at G-A? A: Expanding and repurposing facilities, increasing the number of academic/athletic opportunities, offering increasing STEM/STEAM curriculum, flexible spacing for after-school student groups, has been shown to positively impact students' interest in learning, encouraging them to stay in school and graduate! ● By upgrading and improving the learning environment, our students will be better able to learn the skills needed to be successful adults in our communities. Researchers have followed adults who participated in high school after-school programming such as athletics. They found that those adults exhibit goal setting, perseverance, communication skills and far greater confidence in themselves and their futures. All G-A students deserve the opportunities to learn and master these life skills for their future success as community members and contributors to the world around them.

2021 Bond Proposal - Security Vestibule at the Primary School This security vestibule would be for Preschool and the Daycare center. https://youtu.be/Spq3NFUC978

Q: What is included in the bond proposal and how much will it cost? A: The project remains exactly the same as the needs are exactly the same. ● Additional classroom space at the Primary School means returning 4th grades to the PS and 8th grades to the MS. It will open space back up at the High School for needed programs: Space is maxed out at our Primary School due to necessary and additional programs being added over the past several years. By adding an additional wing on to the Primary which will house four 4th grade classrooms and a STEAM education classroom, we once again will be able to house our 8th graders back at the Middle School and our Primary will return to a PreK-4 building. Currently the High School space is also maxed out keeping us from adding teachers and courses. Our very successful Robotics program is housed in a maintenance building.

2021 Bond Proposal - Athletic Facility Currently our track and field middle school and high school students must travel to and use other school districts’ tracks for both practice and for all meets. Without a new track facility, our students will not get the chance to practice their skills on a daily basis, reach their performance goals nor perform in front of their own community. Additionally, we do not get to take advantage of the income earnings potential from hosting home events--funds that could be used in our athletic and after-school programs for such things as school events and trips, uniforms, equipment, two-way bussing and participation fee relief. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBcyurSEwK8

Count Day is TOMORROW October 6th! STUDENT COUNT DAY AND SCHOOL FUNDING • The count days and school funding are mandated through the State School Aid Act. • Count Day is when all public schools in Michigan tally the number of students attending their schools. • Count information is critical to districts because each student translates into state funding. • State aid is based on the number of students legally enrolled on or before count day. Pupils must be in attendance and receive instruction in all classes on the count day. Please make sure that your student(s) arrive at school on time & attend all day, if possible. Thank you!!!

2021 Bond Proposal - STEAM and STEM The growth in the number of STEM related jobs are projected to outpace all other occupations in the next decade. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that overall employment in the economy will grow about 7.4%, while STEM related fields will grow by 10.8%. STEM/STEAM college job holders earn between 20% and 30% more per hour than non-STEM employees. Unfortunately, in 2018, 2.4 million STEM jobs were projected to go unfilled across the U.S.! Kalamazoo County sees the same gap in graduates’ training and open positions. Having the right facilities to grow more STEM/STEAM programming will help us ensure all students receive this education before graduation, keeping the world of possibilities open for each of them. https://youtu.be/ae3FaDPV644
