START OF 2ND SIX WEEKS

Congratulations on completing a very busy and fast 1st Six Weeks! There is no time to waste and the 2nd Six Weeks will be just the same. If any students failed classes, please join our after school tutorials. There are teachers and Peer Students willing to help. Also, please be aware of your attendance this semester. Remember, you can use tutorials as way to help make-up your hours.

SCHEDULE CHANGES DEADLINE HAS PASSED

The last day for schedule changes was on August 31. We are still getting many students coming to the GHS Counseling Department asking for changes to their schedules. When changes are done this late, loss of credit is very possible.


Even though the deadline for schedule changes has past, The GHS Counseling Department is here to help, advice, support, assist, and guide the Mighty Gator Students.

OCTOBER IS RED RIBBON MONTH

We encourage student participation in Red Ribbon activities. But, shorts and slippers are not allowed on October 7th and 8th.

Not only is the GHS Counseling Department utilizing the Navigating The Swamp monthly newsletter to help students, but new resources have been added. Be on the lookout for our GHS Counseling Billboard located in the lower level wall of the cafeteria and make sure to visit our GHS Counseling Conference Center located by the GHS Counseling Department offices (Room A112). Both the Billboard and the Counseling Conference Center will be great resources that our Counseling Department have set up to help our Mighty Gator Students have a successful 2021-2022 school year!

THE SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARING SPOTLIGHT

Poetry is a great tool used to cultivate Grulla High Students' social and emotional skills. Through poetry, our students can learn concepts like emotions and better understand self-awareness and social awareness.
