GHS Weekly Update

February 15th - February 19th

Hi Team Grissom,

"It's the little conversations that build the relationships and make an impact on each student." - Robert John Meehan

I hope everyone had an enjoyable four-day weekend. It's hard to believe that we are only 3 weeks away from the end of the third nine weeks. Please see the details below for this week.


** Weather Day, No School


** WorkKeys Assessment for all Seniors

- Homeroom will be FIRST.

- DO NOT release from homeroom, until you are informed over the intercom

- Seniors will report to their designated testing room, all other students will report to 1st period.

- DO NOT release from testing/1st period until you are informed over the intercom.


**We will be hosting approximately 35 - 40 out of town guests who are interested in seeing the Digital 1:1 Initiative in action. The majority of our guests are from school districts in Tennessee, Mississippi and Georgia. The main objective for their visit is to learn about the Digital 1:1 curriculum and to see it demonstrated in classrooms at all grade levels and subjects.

Please plan a lesson that incorporates effective, engaging use of technology. The guests will be divided into groups who will tour the building and visit classrooms.

**Faculty meeting @ 3:20


**Make-up faculty meeting @ 7:15 in the AV room


**Approve Kronos


1. Observe another teacher in your grade level. You will bring the observation form to

the faculty meeting next week (2/24).

2. Complete student conferences for all students who failed your class first semester.

You will bring all student conference forms to the faculty meeting next week (2/24).

Note: You should also have a follow-up conference to discuss their progress at the

middle of the 3rd nine weeks.

I want to again thank you all for your diligence in being visible in the hallways, as well as, following the hall pass procedures. I know it's difficult and may seem like such a small task, but it has a tremendous effect on the culture of our school. Thank you!

"Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out." - Robert Collier

Have a great week of teaching and learning :)
