GWA parents are you looking for information about the new school year?
Have you checked your ParentsWeb account?

GWA is moving to a new school management system beginning with the 2014-2015 school year.  ParentsWeb will be the primary communication tool between parents and the Academy and will put key school information at your fingertips!

Going forward, ParentsWeb will be the vehicle to view/print report cards. Additionally parents can update personal information, see their student’s schedule, check attendance and tardies, view daily grades, access the Student Handbook and Student Directory and get other important information.

To gain access to this information, you must first set up your personal, password-protected account. On July 15th an email with instructions and a link to set up your ParentsWeb account was sent to each enrolled family.  The email was sent to the primary email address that was supplied to the school during the spring (or during enrollment, if you are a new family).  If you do not receive your email, please contact Chris Stancil (cstancil@gwa.com) to make sure the school has your primary email address.  Please list student(s) name in the email to ensure correct family association.


 Open House Information

Visit the cafeteria either day from 9 - noon to purchase items from the Dawg House, spirit wear booth and the Bulldog Boutique (gently-used uniforms).
