The Gaylord Athletic Boosters has purchased 200 tickets for GHS students, and the Gaylord Evangelical Free Church has purchased 100 tickets for GHS students. Students can pick up a free ticket from Mr. Wilson during lunches this week. Please join me in thanking these two organizations for supporting our students and making sure our student section is full for Friday night's big game! Of the 300 tickets purchased, over 220 have already been handed out. If your student would like to attend the game free of charge, make sure they see Mr. Wilson!

Drama Club Play: Becoming Juliet
Tickets for drama club’s fall play Becoming Juliet are on sale now!
This show finds a small school facing budget cuts, so the theatre director decides to put on Romeo and Juliet for their spring play since the scripts are already in the public domain. Throughout the show, you’ll meet a wide assortment of students and adults, and you’ll laugh and cry throughout the story. Online tickets are available at www.our.show/ghsjuliet at a cost of $5 for students and seniors and $8 for adults. They’ll also be available in the office and at the door, but in-person tickets cost a little more. Drama club will also be running their annual fall show Toys for Tots drive. When you come to the show, bring a new, unwrapped toy or a cash donation, and be entered in a nightly prize drawing.
