Dear GPCP Families,
We are looking forward to our Graduation and End of the Year Celebration, Friday, May 17th @ the Milledge Fountain in Grant Park!  This is a family event for both campuses and we would love to see you all there.

The Graduation Ceremony will begin promptly at 9:30am at the Milledge Fountain in Grant Park.  All children and families from both multi age classes, Swans and Frogs, are invited to participate in the ceremony.  The graduation ceremony will take approximately one hour.

Following the graduation ceremony, all children and families from the Cats and Ladybugs classes will join us for the End-Of-The-Year Celebration at 10:45am in the same place.  The Celebration will begin promptly at 11:00 am. Both events will end with a picnic lunch around Sally, the climbing tree. Popsicles and milk will be provided by the school. Each family will bring their own picnic lunch.

Rain Plan for Graduation Ceremony: in the event of rain, we will proceed with the plans for the Graduation Ceremony in the Sanctuary at St. Paul United Methodist Church.  The children and families from both multi age classes will meet at St. Paul UMC’s Sanctuary at 9:00am. The ceremony will take place from 9:30 to 10:30 followed by photo shoots on the side of the Sanctuary.  

Rain Plan for end-of-the-year Celebration: in the event of rain the plans for the celebration will be replaced by a special lunch in your child’s classroom.  In this case it will be a regular school day for Cats and Ladybugs classes in their respective classrooms.

Please remember to apply sunscreen on your child and bring a labeled water bottle full with cold water (it is going to be a hot day).  Also, children should wear light clothes and they may bring a hat.

Thank You,


Candace and a subcommittee from the Board of Directors are working hard to come up with plans for a safe reopening in August with the hopes to offer two limited mini camps prior to our full reopening. We are considering the changes we will need to make to GPCP’s procedures and schedules in order to safely bring children and educators back to the building as well as comply with additional Bright From the Start and CDC guidelines.

As stated previously, we are happy to return your summer camp deposits given the cancellations. If you would like, we can also keep that money on your account to go towards enrollment and other fees. We would also like to encourage you - if you are able - to consider giving the deposit as a donation towards the school’s reopening. While we have now secured a small business loan to help with rent and payroll expenses, a safe reopening will come with many additional expenses and any donation will help us secure the resources we need.
