Neydelyn Morales and Jaidyn Sharpe.............. GHS Students of the Month
Neydelyn was nominated by Mr. Johnson and Ms. Osterman. They said, "Neydelyn is kind, caring, and very smart. She is a leader among her peers, and always exhibits a positive attitude. She not only can get her work done but she cares about helping her fellow students understand how to do the work everyday. I look forward to viewing/sharing her development here at GHS."
Jaidyn was nominated by Ms. Young and Ms. Waldo. They said, "Jaidyn Sharpe is a natural leader in the culinary arts classroom. When working in teams; he delegares responsibilities, communicates expectations, and promotes productivity by keeping members on task and on the time schedule. He is a very smart and resourceful young man, he’s always willing to help me out in the classroom and add comedic effect when the class is in a lull. His future ambitions in the culinary arts are admirable, he often asks for guidance on how to get the best resources to achieve this goal."

GHS STEM Scholars Club
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.
