We celebrate our GSC students and recognize their unique talents, especially our sixth-grade student Tessa S.!

We celebrate our GSC students . . .
GSC students are bright, kind, articulate, loving, imaginative, and very unique!
For us, the uniqueness of our students’ interests is a true reflection of our mission, “Our faculty and families work together to identify and develop each student’s God-given talents.”
For our sixth-grade student, Tessa S., her uniqueness is centered in her love of horses and her desire to excel in equestrian athletics.
Tessa is a member of the United States Equestrian Federation’s youth sports program which is sanctioned by the United States Olympic Committee. Having recently participated in several equestrian competitions as well as completing all program requirements for varsity youth lettering in her equestrian discipline, the Hunt Seat Discipline which includes walk, trot, canter and jumping, Tessa has successfully “lettered” in her sport. Tessa has received her program certificate, a pin that she may proudly wear in future competitions, and her varsity letterman patch.
Equestrian athletes dedicate a tremendous amount of time in training and preparing for competition as well as for caring for their horses. For a young person, especially a sixth-grader, this is no easy feat. Equestrian athletics requires a strong individual commitment and involves rigorous practice as well as routine care and attention for the well-being of your partner; your pony. Tessa is directly responsible for the care and well-being of the pony she rides and spends a great deal of her time each week not only practicing but also exercising and taking care of her partner pony.
We know that Tessa’s love for horses and her devoted attention to their care will always be her top priority. We also know that Tessa’s goal is to continue to grow in her sport, competing and succeeding at greater and greater levels along the way. We look forward to continuing to hear wonderful things about Tessa in the world of equestrian sports; one day we might even be able to share the great news about Tessa competing in the Olympics. We know that her God-given talents can make this happen. . .
Tessa is an exceptional GSC student. Her uniqueness is what makes our school special. We are committed to our students and to their parents. We share in their life experiences and we laud their accomplishments. Please join us in doing the same. . .
