GVS Building Committee Update

From Chairwoman Leslie Brown...
Amazing! It is amazing how many materials a teacher of 20 years has produced or acquired over the years. It is amazing how many teaching materials a first- year teacher brings with her. It is amazing the number of things you need to run a school besides teaching materials. And, it is truly amazing how quickly and efficiently a school community can move all those things when everyone chips in. What we thought was going to be a two-day event was pretty much wrapped up by 2 p.m. on Saturday thanks to all the folks who came ready to work.

So, a huge thank you to everyone who helped us hand the building over to Trumbull-Nelson right on schedule Monday morning. To see pictures of our big move and the demolition and beginning of reconstruction that has been accomplished in the days since, please visit and scroll down to the bottom of the page.



Beginning July 1, motor vehicle owners have to take responsibility to remember to register their vehicles without a letter coming from the Town Clerk’s Office. For most people, registration expires on the last day of their birth month. For some, it’s the month assigned to the leasing company or business name on the registration. Registrations can be renewed electronically via EREG (short for Electronic Registration). Go to and click on the EREG license plate. There is a fee for the EREG service. If you have questions, contact the Town Clerk’s Office at 863-5608, or
