Color Run.... Tomorrow!

This Saturday, May 18th at 2:00 the GD High School National Honors Society is hosting a Color Run! Designed to emulate The Color Run©, there will be 5 color stations along the 3k course where runners can run through clouds of colorful chalk! Participants are encouraged to wear white so the accumulated color will show. This is an informal race where running, jogging, and walking are accepted! Stay after the race for live music, free refreshments and continued fun. The event will take place at the Groton Dunstable Regional High School. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Joey Middlemiss Big Heart Foundation. Tickets can be purchased for $15 at the door or for the discounted price of $12 at this link: https://sites.google.com/view/color-run-2019/home. Come to this fun event to show your support!

Student Activities Council hosts Staff Appreciation Breakfast

Thanks so much to S.A.C. and their advisor, Mr. Woods, for putting on such a great spread for the staff at GD on Wednesday morning. The students put in a lot of effort and it was greatly appreciated and also...delicious. As you see below it was amazing. Thanks to Mr. Woods, whom I am sure had many other photos to choose from, for picking one with me in it getting to the food first.

Turtle Season

A message from Darcy Donald

Turtle activity is increasing with the warm and wet weather. Nesting activity will begin in earnest the last week of May into mid June.

Please alert your students and faculty to watch for turtles in the parking lots, under parked cars, and crossing roadways. If they encounter a turtle trapped by curbing, please ask them to gently lift the turtle over the barrier, always moving a turtle the direction it is heading.

If an injured turtle is found, please email grotonturtles@gmail.com immediately.

Thank You

My highlight of the week comes from the GD Drama Guild. Thank You so much for the signed and framed cast & crew portrait of "Radium Girls". I am so touched and honored by your gift.

Academic Award Winners Honored

We enjoyed our annual Academic Excellence celebration on Thursday morning. We honored ten graduating seniors for their accomplishments over the past four years. Each of our honorees chose a staff member who has made a positive impact on their education and each staff member shared a few words about the students who chose them. It was a wonderful morning. A special thanks goes out to Mrs. DeBay and Mrs. Fisher for all of their work in planning and organizing the event.
