A message from Dr. Wiles:
Dear GCSD Families,
This morning Altamont Elementary School students and families gathered at the village gazebo for a “walking school bus.” Learn more about this AES tradition and see some photos, including one of AES Principal Peter Brabant festively dressed for the occasion!
GHS student groups held an anti-hate rally

Culminating a week of events, the rally featured student speeches and a pledge of inclusion: “We, the students and faculty of Guilderland High School pledge to do our part to condemn hate and bigotry in our community. We will strive to create a more inclusive school, one that isn’t afraid to stand up for others and to acknowledge its faults. Our journey towards celebrating diversity dn education ourselves on discriminations begins now.”
