Attendance Violations??

Students who have more than 4 absences in any one class are required to attend Saturday School. Students can make up 2 absences each Saturday School. Students with extreme circumstances related to attendance can file an appeal by writing a letter to Mr. Scraggs with detailed information about absences.

Honors Night

Seniors who applied for local scholarships through the GHS Counseling Office will be notified of their selection in the next couple of weeks. A formal invitation to attend the May 6th Honors Night is indicative of your selection. This will be distributed to students in school as well as mailed home. Until then, all students who applied should mark their calendars for May 6th at 7:00pm.

One final note, if you are receiving an outside scholarship (related to athletics, band, theater, academics, etc.) and would like to be recognized, please submit your scholarship information to Ms. Dunham in the Counseling Center and we will add it to the program. We are proud to announce all of your accomplishments!
