Six GHS Chorale members advance to State
On Saturday, members of the GHS Leopard Chorale competed in the UIL Regional Solo and Ensemble Contest at Sanger High School. Each student chose a Class 1 solo, which they had to memorize and perform for the chance to advance to the State competition. These are solos that are usually studied in collegiate level music programs. Congratulations to the following students who received a Division One rating and will all be advancing to the next level of competition the first weekend of June:
Ruby Pingleton, Andrew Carroll, Mirian Motomochi, Xander Hernandez, Jaelynn Graham, Emma Cato

OOO Rah, Javier!
We appreciate your support as students get accustomed to the new cell phone policy. It takes an adjustment period but we will continue to keep the instructional focus in our classrooms and hallways.
Just as a reminder:
Cell phone use is prohibited in classrooms, hallways and restrooms. They must be stored or put away during the instructional day.
Cell phones are allowed to be used before 8:15 in the cafeteria AND during a student's assigned lunch period in the cafeteria.
● On the first offense and second offense, the telecommunications device shall be confiscated and then returned to the parent with a warning for the student/parent. The parent and student will sign the written warning.
● On the third offense (and incremental offenses thereafter), a $15 fine shall be required before the telecommunications device is returned. ○ A parent may elect to forgo the fine in place of an alternative deterrent.
■ If the fine is not paid, the student will be required to report to the front office to turn in their electronic device(s) each day for a period of five consecutive school days. The device(s) will be available for student retrieval at the conclusion of each school day for this situation only. All other confiscations must be retrieved by a parent and/or guardian.
