Principal Letter

Dear Parents and Students of GHS,

This week we hosted Veterans Day breakfast for our community's Veterans and their families. Our student council and catering students did an outstanding job conducting the event. I was honored to be a small a part of the event, and I am grateful that our school has a strong history of honoring our Veterans. Thank you to our Veterans and their family!

Next week is our last week before the Thanksgiving break, and I know we are all ready for a little time off to relax and recharge. With the second six weeks ending on Friday, next week is a great time for our students to work with their teachers to create a plan if they are struggling academically to finish this first semester strong and be on a good path forward the second semester. If our students need additional support please reach to administration or our counseling team.

Have a great week!
