Summer at Global Community Charter School

While our students were enjoying their summer vacation, big changes were happening at GCCS.

The first change you may have noticed is our beautiful new school mural. Our mural was inspired by our vibrant, multicultural school community and designed and painted by Creative Art Works, an organization that employs local young adults to work on community art projects. On August 9 we invited our community to join Creative Art Works in celebrating the completion of our mural. GCCS is proud to brighten the neighborhood with its beautiful new look!

While the outside of our building was being beautified we were also enhancing the inside. 

Our cafeteria kitchen received a complete upgrade with new appliances and a new school food menu. In partnership with Navin Brothers Food Service, GCCS is happy to provide its students and staff with healthy, freshly cooked meals. Our lunch period is more delicious than ever!

Both our music teacher Mr. Hughes and the Behavior Specialists received brand new rooms. Mr. Hughes and his students are very excited to have a spacious music room where they can sing and play instruments while the Behavior Specialists are thrilled to have you visit their roomy new office. 

Our Teachers’ Lounge was also renovated and furnished with a new kitchen and comfy furniture allowing our staff to meet with their peers, cook, and collaborate in their free time. 

We want to thank Mr. Jose, Mr. Quijada, and the rest of our maintenance team for working hard all summer to make these improvements. The building is freshly painted, the floors are waxed, and the classrooms are clean and ready for an exciting new school year.

Letter from Head of School for the 2016-2017 School Year

Dear GCCS Families and Friends,

Welcome to Global Community Charter School! 

I am so proud to announce that this year marks the 5th anniversary of our school’s opening.

Each and every year our school community has grown and improved in size and scope. Last year we welcomed more families, engaged in more complex areas of study, provided rich explorations in the creative arts, and introduced our first inquiries into the subject of science.

This year brings many more new developments that I am excited to share with you: from our new school mural and renovated music room to our state-of-the-art cafeteria kitchen and the completion of our final phase of International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program candidacy.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our new and returning families and staff. We would not have made it this far without your trust and support. Thank you for your continued support of our school community and mission.

Together we can aim higher.

We can do this!


Phyllis Siwiec

Carta del Director Escolar

¡Bienvenidos a Global Community Charter School! 

Estoy muy orgullosa de anunciar que este año se cumple el quinto aniversario de la apertura de la escuela.

Todos y cada año, nuestra comunidad escolar ha crecido y mejorado en tamaño y alcance. El año pasado recibimos a más familias,participamos más en áreas complejas de estudio, ofrecimos exploraciones ricas en las artes creativas e introdujimos nuestras primeras investigaciones cientificas. .

Este año estoy muy emocionada de anunciar que traemos muchas más novedades como  nuestro nuevo mural escolar y renovación del salón de música a una cocina/cafetería nueva y la realización de la fase final de la aplicación para ser miembros del Programa Internacional de Escuela Primaria del Bachillerato (PYP).

Me gustaría aprovechar esta oportunidad para agradecer a todas nuestras familias y personal escolar. No habríamos llegado tan lejos sin su confianza y apoyo. Gracias por su continuo apoyo a nuestra comunidad y misión escolar.

Juntos podemos aspirar a más.

¡Podemos hacer esto!

Director de la Escuela
