From the Principal

INTERNATIONAL DAY: CHINA
Congratulations and thank you to all the students, staff and parent volunteers who contributed to a hugely successful International Day: China! 
 
Experience again the excitement of the performances on Global Village Academy Douglas County's Facebook!
 
WINTER BEACH BLAST
4th - 6th grade students had a great time at the Winter Beach Blast dancing, playing with beach balls, taking photos at the photo stations and winning gift cards!!!!  Thank you to all of the parent volunteers who came out to help with this fun event!
 
COLD AND FLU SEASON
February is supposed to be another big month for the flu.  To prevent catching the Flu, health professionals are making the following recommendations:
  • If you have not already done so, get a Flu shot!
  • Eat a healthy diet rich in Vitamins C and D (there is some evidence that Vitamin C and D boost the immune system).
  • Stay hydrated!
  • Get adequate rest daily!
  • Frequently wash hands using soap, water, and dry thoroughly!
If your student has been ill, please do not allow them to return to school until they have been 24-hours free from fever, vomiting and/or diarrhea. 
 
BUILDING CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
To augment daily cleaning and disinfecting, GVA-DC was deeply and thoroughly cleaned by an outside janitorial crew last weekend.  Away with you GERMS!!!!
 
PARKING LOT REMINDER
Please refrain from parking in the handicapped spaces in the parking lot unless you have a current handicapped sticker on your vehicle.  GVA-DC has several families requiring handicap accessibility who have been unable to utilize handicapped parking as cars have parked/paused there to load or unload students. 
 
THE WEEK AHEAD
 
Tuesday, January 30th
  • Fire Drill                    
Wednesday, January 31st                  
  • Prospective Parent Meeting at 6:00 pm (Mandarin Village)
 
Thank you for partnering with GVA-DC in the education of your child!
