Reminder, we will be continuing our tradition of saying “Thank You” through our actions. Our GBALI annual day of service is Saturday, May 7, 2016 at Lillie May Carroll Jackson Charter School (900 Woodbourne Ave, Baltimore, MD 21212) from 8:44 AM to 12 PM. Dress code is to wear comfortable clothing that you wouldn’t mind getting a little dusty. Plan accordingly, remind someone and then invite someone.
We’re looking forward to seeing everyone. It’s been a long time.
24 hours. We all have the same amount of time. What we choose to do with each hour is what makes us different. It’s what reveals our life’s priorities. GBALI students are expected to make service to others a high priority.

Also, both current and new student applications for next year (2016-2017) have been posted. The deadline for current students to secure their spot for next year is Monday, May 30, 2016. After that, you will need to submit a new student application and be evaluated with all other new student applications. Share with yourself and share the link and your story with your family, friends and classmates in grades 8-11. The early new student application deadline is Sunday, August, 14, 2016.
Our session for Saturday, 3/26/16, has been cancelled due to a schedule conflict. This session was to be on Money Management. Though it’s being cancelled this topic is EXTREMELY important. Almost every decision you make directly or indirectly has an impact on your life financially. If you’re not properly educated, you won’t know or understand how.
Your last assignment for the 2015-2016 year is to watch 2 videos and answer the 3 questions below. Assignment is due by Friday, 3/25/16 at 11:00 PM. Ensure the rest of your GBALI family is aware of this assignment. The entire family will be rewarded if you all can achieve a 90% on-time submission rate (29 or greater). We don’t think you all can do it. Or can you? (Challenge!: youtu.be/CDLKpd4aUH8)

Reminder that our next & final session will be on Saturday, 3/26/16. Our community service day has been scheduled for Saturday, 5/7/16. This isn’t an optional event since community service is a core principal of our program. It’s been a great year. Let’s end it properly.
