April Edition

Eagles,

I hope everyone had a restful Spring Break. Since our return to campus I can already feel the energy of our revitalized students and staff! Spring starts the process of winding down the end of the school year. It's the time we start planning our end of the year celebrations and prepare to welcome our incoming class of 2025. We are currently working with our district, county health guidelines and our staff to provide the most authentic end of the year activities possible!


I've spent the past couple Friday nights watching our Eagle Football team participate in some exciting games! We'll be hosting League Championships at our Pool in mid-April. It's been amazing to see our kids get back on the basketball court! I am overwhelmed with pride when as I see our students, families and coaches making lasting memories on the field.


As I watch the return of sports, I am reminded of an old John Wooden quote- "Things turn out best for those who make the best of the way things turn out." I couldn't be more grateful to the coaches of Granite Hills High School. At a moments notice they have brought teams, competition and community back to our school. Many of our coaches were able to do so while still maintaining their own jobs and family commitments. Thank you to our coaches! A big thank you to Mr. Davis and Mr. Resultant for their leadership during this time!



Please continue to check our website, social media and Eagle Empire Newsletter for important announcements.


We look forward to celebrating our students as we close this school year!


With Eagle Pride-

Mr. Fowler

NEW - AP/IB Commitment Form

At Granite Hills, we want to support students as they develop into learners who demonstrate grit and perseverance as they take on academic challenges. AP and IB classes require students to approach their work very seriously and we, as a school, commit to helping them along the way. Please keep in mind, selection of an AP/IB course during Spring course selection, is a commitment to the course. Your ability to move into a College Prep section, or drop the course, may not be possible in the fall.


This year we are requesting students, and parents, opting to take AP/IB course to sign a commitment letter to pledge their understanding of the rigorous course work, the support needed to be successful and challenges of changing out of the course at the start of next school year.


You can review the commitment letter by clicking below or seeing the link on your digital form. Please email your counselor the completed form or bring in a hard copy to the counseling office.
