Garden City High School Library

January 2015 Update

Happy New Year!

Welcome back to school. It did not take long for students to get back into a routine after the December break. Students flocked into the library during the month of January. With 14 instructional days we had nearly 5,500 students use the library during study halls, lunches and senior off periods. Additionally, there were 45 classes taught in the research lab as students worked on their English 9R and Participation In Government research papers.

See you in February,
