Welcome, Alumni Saints!
We love receiving updates from our alumni! Please share your latest news - accomplishments, marriages, new jobs, birth of children, and more! Email(semerson [at] gslschool [dot] org) your information and photos to Associate Director of Development Sherry Emerson.
Be sure to also send us(semerson [at] gslschool [dot] org) your updated contact information. We will keep you informed of upcoming alumni events. We invite alumni of all ages to join us every year for Football and Basketball Homecoming but, of course, you are welcome to stop by GSL anytime to say hello to old friends.
Our Head of School Thor Kvande encourages alumni to visit campus and/or email him with favorite memories and stories about GSL. These stories are invaluable in helping us tell prospective families what makes GSL special. Click here(tkvande [at] gslschool [dot] org) to email Mr. Kvande today.
We are especially grateful to all of the alumni who have stayed in touch with GSL and supported our events. We have hosted several fun gatherings during the past two years for local alumni (aged 21 and older) at Lafayette’s and Loflin Yard. These events are promoted primarily via our alumni Facebook page. The next alumni reunion (for former students ages 21 and older) will be held May 11, 2018. (More info to come!) We are also taking nominations for Outstanding Alumni of the Year to be announced at the May reunion. Click here to download the form to nominate a worthy Luker for this award.
