GAMP’s statement on our country’s situation

Our country is grieving – Grieving not only from a pandemic, but from a weekend fueled by long held racial injustices within our country. To stay silent about these issues would unconscionable. G.A.M.P. was founded on the basis of desegregation to bring all people together through the unifying sounds of music.

Black lives do in fact matter and equally deserve a fair place in this world. As a community, we denounce racism of any form and will not tolerate any form of division that goes against our founding ideals. These are difficult times and difficult issues to navigate but through honesty, empathy, and a desire to do better, we will get though this together.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to reach out to the school administration.
