GHS Weekly Update

May 9th - May 13th

Hi Team Grissom,

It's hard to believe that we are just three weeks away from the end of the school year. This week we are still AP Testing, and will be continuing to make up the ACT Aspire and ACT EOC Exams.

The "tentative" make up schedule for EOC exams will be the following:

Monday - Algebra 1, English 10, English 11

Tuesday - English 9, Algebra 2 Trig, PreCal

Wednesday - Biology, English 12, Physics

Thursday - Geometry, Chemistry, US History

Friday - Last day for make up

Monday morning the testing location for the EOC make up exams will be emailed and posted on the whiteboard in the mailroom. The schedule may change depending upon the number of students who need to make up an exam. You will be notified daily, so it is imperative you are consistently checking your email for updates.


- We will continue the same bell schedule this week. Next week, we will return to the Regular Bell Schedule.

- Inform your students that the halls around the library will be off-limits this week due to testing.

- You will receive a make up roster for the ACT Aspire and EOC Exams. Inform these students of their testing location each morning.

- Complete the "Semester Exam-Exemption List Second Semester-Grissom High School for students who are exempting your final exam.

Thank you all for being vigilant in the halls in between classes and using the GHS Hall Pass. We must continue to be consistent in our daily procedures. I appreciate your hard work and dedication to Grissom.
