GHS Weekly Update

May 2nd - May 6th

Hi Team Grissom,

"...I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship."

- Louisa May Alcott

I want to thank you all for your patience, understanding and support during the past two weeks. I know it's been a hectic and exhausting two weeks.

This week begins our AP exams, as well as, the make up testing for ACT+ Writing, ACT Aspire and ACT EOC Exams. Please understand that we will begin pulling students for make up exams starting Tuesday. We must have at least 95% participation rate which is mandated by the state.

It is imperative that you check your email daily because we will not be making any announcements the next two weeks due to AP exams. You will be receiving important information regarding students who need to make up ACT Aspire and/or ACT EOC exams.

Please refer to the bell schedule and May calendar below for important information. On May 18th, we will be having a GHS Club Fair. You will receive more information later this week.

I hope you all have a great week,
