GHS Senior Yard Sign Information!

Dear Families of GHS Seniors,



It is hard to believe, but we are quickly approaching the end of the 2020-2021 school year! I am so incredibly proud of our senior class this year and the way that they have persevered through so many changes and challenges this year. We are working hard to ensure that we celebrate them in the way that they deserve. With that being said, we want to share an opportunity for how you can help us recognize our seniors this year.


Lexington One will once again provide yard signs for each senior in the district. As soon as these are delivered to GHS, we will get them out to students/families so you can display them at your home. I’m attaching an image of this yard sign to this message. This sign will be provided to each senior free of charge.


Families can also choose to purchase a personalized yard sign using the following link: VIPdecals.com. A portion of the proceeds from this sale will go to Gilbert High School to create a fund to support GHS seniors in need in the years to come. Please reach out if you have any questions about these yard signs.



Have a great day,



Jacob Nelson

Principal, Gilbert High School
