Groton Channel

The Groton Channel has been blessed with some great student volunteers over the years. This year they are in need of some more, especially for the popular Around Town production. If any student is interested in learning more, please check in to see Ashley Doucette in the studio located in the GDRHS basement after school.

Ms. Foye's class recently made an appearance on "Book Party". Check out the episode here.


Parent Volunteers

This year we are beginning preparations for our decennial accreditation visit conducted by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). As part of this process we will be conducting and writing a self-reflection. You may remember requests to fill out a parent survey earlier this year. We are looking for a few parent volunteers to participate in this process by contributing to some of the work our staff is doing on this. If you would be interested in participating, please email Mike Woodlock. mwoodlock@gdrsd.org
