Kids Against Hunger - Volunteer Opportunity
Grosse Pointe Memorial Church and The War Memorial are sponsoring a "Kids Against Hunger" volunteer project at The War Memorial this Saturday, March 18th. They still need volunteers! This is a really fun event that lets students work with friends and family as we assemble nutrient-dense meal packs for people in need.
Here's the sign-up form:

Graduation Speech Submissions and Auditions
Class of 2023! Graduation speeches must be submitted by March 17th for consideration. Auditions will be after school on March 22nd with a panel of Ms. Parent and our speech teachers. See Ms. Parent in room 195 with questions regarding speech themes or appropriateness to our graduation ceremony.
Graduation Cap & Gown Ordering - Jostens
- GP South HS uses Jostens as their preferred vendor for Graduation Merchandise. The School does NOT have any purchasing or tracking information. I will occassionally receive that students have/have not ordered a cap/gown. All cap/gowns/tassels will be shipped to school and distributed to students a few days before graduation date.
- Jostens was at School in person on Wednesday, December 7 to meet with students in person.
- In effort to get the best pricing, order early! Prices will increase as graduation gets closer. (Currently the most basic cap, gown, tassel is $40)
- Yes, you can borrow siblings or friends or one of your parent's from the early 1990s (ha ha!), I'd recommend a new tassel and cap.
- Yes, the Student Activities office has a bin of them if you feel like you'd like a "hand me down" (just let me know your height)
Feel free to swing by Student Activities, room 131 for more information or a flyer.
