Parking Lot Improvements

These two photos show recent improvements to the student parking lot. The entrance has traffic delineators to improve traffic flow and reduce the risk of accidents, and the pavement is clearly marked with arrows. The changes were suggested by our SRO, Officer Schambach.

You may have noticed this board by the admin conference room! This is another way that we can provide thanks for those who are working so hard or help us along our GHS journey. ALL staff are encouraged to grab a Buc Note and complete it for a colleague. Here are some highlights from last week:

Liz Diaz nominates Coach McFarlane for hosting the hands-on CPR training. The kiddos loved it!

Lisa Jennings nominates Liz Brandt for being #1 transcript detective!

Lisa Jennings nominates Officer Brett for helping in all odd situations here at GHS - in a moments notice - sometimes at the end of the day - without complaining.
