Student of the Month - Alejandra Magana Rosas
Alejandra Magana Rosas is December's Student of the Month. ARISE is an acronym for our behavior standards at GWHS. Alejandra exemplifies these standards in the following ways:
She is a top attender who is making sure and steady progress towards graduation (Accountable)
She is a good listener who is extremely kind and friendly to everyone (Respectful)
She is an avid reader who has checked out 362 books from Ogden City School District in the past eleven years (24 this year alone!) and she’s an amazing artist. While she mostly keeps to herself, she is a leader when it comes to doing school projects (Involved)
She follows rules and stays out of trouble (Safe), and
She has made honor roll or high honor roll every term she has been at our school and she is a constant award winner at district art contests (Excelling)
Alejandra loves the art classes she has taken at GWHS and is the library’s best patron. She enjoys her biology class, especially learning about nature. Trees are one of her favorite things to draw. Alejandra loves reading graphic novels, exploring new places, hiking, fishing, and going to the beach. In the future she'd like to write and illustrate graphic novels, share her art and travel around the world, starting with a visit to a tropical rainforest.
Alejandra loves reading graphic novels and would like to write and illustrate them one day. These are some of her original characters.
Alejandra took charge of the "chalk the walk" sidewalk drawing for her class during HOPE week.
Trees are one of Alejandra's favorite things to draw.

Huge shoutout to Kenlee East for organizing Santa's Workshop this year. It is a big responsibility and she did a great job!

Jessica Deer - New ELA Teacher
When Jessica's not at school, she uses new opportunities to spend time with her family on the weekends, which she couldn't do before. She finished her Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction in September, so it has been nice to have even more time to explore this new town that is rich in so much history and so many fun things to do! She also enjoys reading new books and taking her Goldendoodle, Beckham, out for walks and hikes.
Holiday Door Decorating
Mr. White's class went with a classic Grinch theme. "Well, in Whoville they say that the Grinch's small heart grew three sizes that day!"
Mr. Muncy's class had her run over by a reindeer!
Merry Krampus from Mr. Woodbury's class
Mr. Woodbury's class won with their take on Krampus. On the wall you see terrorized children running from Krampus into safety in a gingerbread house. Wait? Is that the witch from Hansel and Gretel?
