Gary Community School Corporation Welcomes Volunteers and Partnerships for the New School Year
“You can feel a sense of ‘cougar’ pride this year,” said Dr. McNulty Manager of the Gary Schools. “Local organizations, churches, teachers, staff, administration, students and community stakeholders are working together to make this school year impactful and phenomenal.”
The district recently transitioned to a unified Cougar mascot to represent all of the schools from Pre-K to 12th grade. “The Gary Way,” detailed on the district’s website, invites the entire school community, from students to parents/guardians, to every Gary constituent, to take an active role in the Gary schools while embracing the idea of oneness.
Through the continuous push of community partners, a number of organizations are already in the schools providing resources and programs at each grade level.
Organizations like Gear-Up have gone beyond their academic support by establishing a gardening club at West Side Leadership Academy. The new special touches to the courtyard as well as an expansion of vegetable and flowerbeds on the west end of the campus are the types of contributions made by students and community partners.
Programs under WDS, Inc. umbrella assists students with fulfilling their graduation requirements and supports scholars in need of additional accommodations outside the traditional classroom setting.
A new parent-led Booster club is in the making to support GCSC athletic teams.
