Happy Halloween! We are having an exciting week at GCA.  We had so much fun at our Halloween parties and Miss Bonnie's Circus today. We loved seeing everyone in their costumes and applauding the Kinder-prep class while they showed us their talents! It was so much fun! Next week on November 7th, the chapel will be led by Mrs. Lyons and the Kindergarteners. Family and friends are always invited to attend! Keep checking Brightwheel and reading your teacher's newsletters to learn about all the exciting things our classes are doing!

Introducing our Staff!

This week we will get to know more about our new Interim Administrator Miss Sandy!

My name is Sandy Rosenbaum. I am so excited to be the interim principal at Gethsemane Christian Academy! I have been a member of Gethsemane church since the 70’s.  I have served in many roles at the church including school board member, Sunday school teacher, and youth group advisor. I retired from Mesa Public Schools in May after teaching for 32 years.  I love children of all ages and am looking forward to getting to know each student and family. I am married and have three children. My son, Darrel, is married to Julia and have blessed us with 2 granddaughters.  Dana is my daughter, and she works full time at Starbucks. My youngest is Dustin, and some of you may know him as he has worked at Gethsemane as well. In my free time I love hiking in the mountains. I also cherish time with my family.  I look forward to meeting each of you, please stop in the office and say hi!
