March 30, 2020:  Gov. Larry Hogan issued a stay-at-home order for Marylanders which means no one should leave their home for any reason other than essential work, to get food or other fundamental reason. The order takes effect at 8 pm.
For the GISW this means:

1. All GISW buildings will be closed for the foreseeable future. 

2. In order to give our teachers and parents more time to prepare, we are postponing both parent nights that were scheduled for tonight to Thursday at the same time.

Distance Learning until Friday, April 24th, 2020.

We are here for you as we continue to prepare for the 2020/21 school year. The Admissions Office remains open. Please complete this form and we will contact you:

Preschool: Eric Energy

Eric Energy - STEM at Preschool

In February, Eric Energy visited the Preschool and presented scientific experiments and demonstrated in an age appropriate, entertaining way concepts around the topic of electricity, such as:

- circuit,

- conductors and insulators,

- static electricity,

- Robert Van de Graaff-generator,

- sound waves,

- sound distortion,

- lasers and their use

The children were fascinated, enthusiastic, and got an impression of the basics in this important area in science.
