Clean Our Campus Week

Clean Our Campus Week was a huge success. Thank you to the over 24 classes and clubs who took on different sections of campus. Our students and staff transformed our campus from it's dreary and dirty post-winter look to a beautiful, clean campus ready for spring!

Successful HOSA Blood Drive

HOSA MEMBER, Kailyn Forsberg, organized a blood drive as community outreach for her English IV senior project. GHS students and staff donated 35 units of blood which will be processed into 105 life saving products. Thanks for your donating, GHS!

Support GHS Bands by joining the Raptor Run!

Raptor Bands is putting together an in-person 5K run/walk fundraiser on Saturday, May 20th! Rather than just selling another product you probably don't need, we are trying to bring the community together. We'd love to see many of you and your families at the event. Whether you can attend or not, please help spread the word!

Here is the sign up link.

PAC Update - Teacher Appreciation Week

A note from the GHS PAC:

Teacher Appreciation week is May 8-12th. We turn this into staff appreciation week to show the entire staff how much we appreciate them. We have a lot of things planned to let our teachers and staff know how great we think they are. Please help us spoil them by signing up to bring in a food item during the week or donate money to help cover the cost. If you would like to send us a note to pass along to them, we will print it and post it in their break room. Here is what we have planned: Coffee of their choice from Jurassic Perk and breakfast goodies, taco Tuesday, breakfast, cookies and other sweets, and a BBQ.

We appreciate your donations to help make this an amazing week.

Sign up to bring food items HERE.

Donate money HERE.

Thank you for your help in supporting all GHS staff!
