Honor Your Favorite Teacher with a STAR Award

STAR Awards are a wonderful end of year gift from a student or a whole class.  Your STAR will be honored with a certificate that includes a message from you, recognition on the GFFE website, and acknowledgement of the distinction sent to his or her principal.  More about STAR Awards here.

The Witness Stones Project

Dennis Culliton and The Witness Stones Project was recently awarded a grant to bear witness to Guilford's history of slavery by installing markers, the "witness stones," in Guilford where slaves lived.  These markers bear witness to Guilford's history as a slave owning town, and bring to mind the tragedy of slavery throughout history to the present day.

On November 2, the Witness Stones Project had a ceremony on the Guilford Green to install three Witness Stones, two on Park street and one on Boston Street. Pictures from the ceremony can be found here.


A Celebration of Education in Guilford held October 26

Seven grant recipients presented recaps of their grant projects to an audience of community members, and Guilford Public School teachers, administrators and students.  Superintendent Freeman wrapped up with some words about the level of commitment he sees in the community for our public education program.

Videos of the presentations can be found here.
