Guffey Community Charter School's Winter Program
Guffey Community Charter School invites everyone to attend the school's winter program which is Thursday, December 19th starting at 2PM. The afternoon highlights are an all-school play, a community clothing-toy drive give-a-way, and a cookie exchange. This year's play, an original written by Alexi Alfieri, features all the school's students, kindergarten-8th grade. The play, The Naughtiest Kid on the List, offers a message of "naughty vs. nice behavior" and the chance to "turn over a new leaf" as Christmas approaches. After the play, check out our classroom which is filled with school-community donated clothing, toys, and games all free to anyone who would benefit from these items. The cookie exchange is also a lot of fun so bring a dozen or two to exchange and enjoy a plate to take home. If you have items to donate, please bring them to the school by end of day Wednesday, December 18th. The school is located at 1459 Main Street in Guffey. Please come, because everyone is welcome!

The Administrator's 2012/2013 Annual Report to the District and the Guffey community is now available.
We've added lots of new material on our Administration pages, including our governance policies, board meeting documents, and financial information.
in 2011, the Guffey Community Charter School Board wrote a new policy which created a Sustainability Fund with the primary purpose of ensuring steady school funding across years with lower than average enrollment. The Board is responsible for managing the fund and making any disbursements. The fund depends primarily on donations, and has already been generously endowed by several generous community members. The Board requests that anyone interested in adding to this fund contact Frank Ruvo for more information.
In 2007, Guffey School built an observatory and installed a pair of large telescopes. You can follow the new link in the navigation bar on the left to learn about this amazing resource.
