Veterans Day 2017

On Friday, November 10, 2017, the GCMS School District will be honoring Veteran’s Day with a special program. The celebration is open to the public and will take place in the High School Gymnasium, beginning at 9 AM. Veterans and their families are invited to attend a social hour and refreshments starting at 8 AM in the High School Library.

We will also be offering a live stream of the event. Links to the stream will be available on and our Facebook page.

As in past years, we will be including a PowerPoint of veterans from our community. If you have submitted a picture for the ceremony in the past years, the picture is already included in the presentation.
