You won't want to miss it! The GHS Dedication Ceremony is Saturday!

Saturday, Sep. 17th, 10am

1320 Collaborative Way

Leander, TX

Please join us as we officially dedicate our wonderful new school on Sat., Sept. 17th at 10:00am in the Main Gym. The Grizzly Band, cheerleaders, and Guardians will be performing during the dedication, and afterwards you may take a self-guided tour of GHS.

Have you wondered who Tom Glenn is? Tom Glenn retired in January of 2008 after serving as superintendent of LISD for 20 years. During his tenure, Glenn led the district on a path of excellence that helped drive its explosive growth. When Glenn began as superintendent, there were 4,600 students in LISD. The district reported more than 24,200 students just before his retirement. Glenn’s leadership led to the establishment of LISD’s culture of continuous improvement and Guiding Documents, philosophies that continue to shape the district today. He and his wife still live in the area, and in fact, attend many of our GHS events to support our students and staff. Don't be surprised if you meet him on campus!

Every School Day Counts!

As we get ready to begin our 5th week of school, we would like to stress the importance of attendance and making sure our students are in class. In order for our students to thrive in the classroom, they must be present and prepared! We also encourage parents to plan any appointments, vacations, and personal days around the LISD calendar. If it is necessary to plan an appointment for your student during the school day, please try to schedule at the end of the day. Thank you for realizing that Every School Day Counts!

Our first yearbook!

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to buy the FIRST Yearbook at GHS! The book is $50 and can be bought online at the link below. You may also pay with cash or check at school. If you buy before Sept. 30th, your student is guaranteed to be in the book AT LEAST 3 TIMES! Don’t forget, and buy ASAP.

What about Homecoming?

We will be celebrating Fall Ball in lieu of Homecoming until we have students who have graduated who would be returning for a homecoming celebration. We will still have all the fun and festivities associated with Homecoming such as the football game, mums, dance, spirit days, and a Fall Ball Royal Court. We plan to grow this event as we add students and the school grows. Our Fall Ball Week will begin September 26th with Spirit Days each day that week. To close out the week, we'll have the football game at Gupton Stadium on Friday, September 30th and the Fall Ball Dance on Saturday, Oct. 1st. It's going to be a great week to be a Grizzly!
