Spirit Week
The week before break, our staff brought on the school spirit with GLA’s Spirit Week 2014! Our staff wore all sorts of fun, themed-outfits, like college wear day, twin day and holiday sweater day.

It was great to really drive home our strong, fiercely positive school culture before the holiday season. Our scholars definitely got a kick out of seeing our staff dressed in these spirited outfits, and we can't wait to plan more culture-building days!
Upcoming Events
Winter Wonderland
Our GLA Power Parents are planning our first Winter Fest celebration! We will transform our cafenasium into a winter wonderland for our students on Friday, January 23. We’re looking forward to all the fun activities our parents have planned for the event!

Open House
We will open our doors to prospective families on Saturday, January 24 at our Open House. During this event, families interested in enrolling their scholars at GLA for the 2015-16 school year can see our school, meet our staff and interact with our founding families. It’ll be a great opportunity to show the community what it means to be a part of the GLA family.
Get to Know... Ms. Stuckey!
Our Master  Teacher in University of Chicago, Ms. Stuckey!
Name: Jami Stuckey

Title: Master Teacher in University of Chicago

Before I came to Great Lakes Academy... I taught kindergarten and second grade in Phoenix, Arizona.

I got into teaching because... I have had a passion to teach ever since I was a little girl. 

My scholars love to... explain their answers without me having to ask. I'm impressed with their knowledge each day!

If I could trade places for one day with anyone in the world, it would be... Gregg Popovich, the head coach of the San Antonio Spurs.
