5 Things Happening at Gulf Coast

1. Homecoming Spirit Week is here! While we may have had to postpone the Homecoming Dance, the spirit days are still happening! Check out the calendar below - show us your best outfits while showing us your #SharkPride!


2. A couple reminders when it comes to attending any of our CCPS events:


  • CCPS is going cashless when it comes to purchasing sporting event tickets. You can download the app GOFAN for quick access and easily store your tickets. You can also purchase online at gofan.co or by using the QR code that you see posted outside the events. When you attend an event, you will pull the tickets up on your phone and the staff member at the gate will click "redeem". Don't do that beforehand.
  • As part of the district's enhanced security efforts, NO BAGS are allowed at any CCPS events. The only exception will be medically necessary items after inspection. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.


3. CCPS is providing an opportunity for all 9th, 10th, and select 11th graders to take either the PSAT 8/9 or the PSAT/ NMSQT on Wednesday, October 13th, during the school day. Letters will be sent home Wednesday this week with more specific information. Please be on the lookout for those.


4. The Academic Booster Club would like to thank the families that have already made a donation to this year's academic recognitions and celebrations of both students and teachers. We welcome donations in any amount, checks made payable to Gulf Coast High School Academic Booster Club, c/o Caroline Hylemon.


There are also specific levels of recognition:


  • SHARK $500 (recognized on website and on ABC banner in the stadium) Please submit by Monday, September 27th
  • SILVER $250 (recognized on website)
  • TEAL $100 (recognized on website)
  • BLACK $50 (recognized on website)

Thank you for your consideration in helping out this organization. A letter was also placed in the Sharks Tooth that recently went out. There is an open meeting on Monday, September 27th, at 6:30 pm in the media center. Come see what we are all about!
