Clinic of Champions/California Conference North All-Star Football Game

Greenville High School football coach David Keller has been asked to give presentations to other coaches during the Max Miller Clinic of Champions in Sacramento and Reno. Keller will make presentations about Greenville's approach to offense, which was second in the nation in 2018 among small schools. Keller speaks in Reno March 1, while he speaks in Sacramento on Jan. 25. The Clinic of Champions is conducted each year in the two cities and reaches thousands of coaches throughout Northern California and Nevada. The Reno edition of the conference enters its 39th year. Keller will focus the seminars on Greenville's passing game, which was second in the state this past season among small schools, and its running game, which was third in the nation among small schools. In addition, for the second time, Keller has been asked by Lions Club International District 4C1 to be the head coach of the Northern Section California Conference South team. Two Greenville players—seniors Tristin Clark and Colton Lawson—have been selected to participate on the all-star team. The game is scheduled for June 22 against the California Conference North team. “It's an honor to represent Greenville High School in each of these endeavors,” Keller said. “This is a tribute to the students who have played and continue to play football at GHS. I am proud of the school's reputation in the football community.”

A Note from Our District Nurse

Staff Feature

This week's staff feature is Mrs. Jessica Anderson. Jessica is a GJSHS graduate who has been working for PUSD since 2010. She started as the GJSHS Apollo Coordinator. Since that time, she has been a special needs attendant, a noon duty, and she has even worked in the cafeteria. This year, Jessica is a Title I Paraeducator. During her day, she supports students in grades 1-6 in all academic areas. She can often be seen leading a reading or writing group, helping students with math, and she supports our combination classes. She is also assisting this year with Read Naturally Live, which is our Reading Intervention Program funded with Title I funds. Jessica also supports our PBIS program and does CICO (Check In-Check Out) with students at the beginning and the end of each day. Jessica is a huge asset to our school and our students (and staff!) benefit from having her on campus each day!

We Need Your Help

We receive Title I and other federal funding for our school based on the number of students who qualify for free or reduced lunch. Because of the grant PUSD received to have all of our students receive free breakfast and lunch, many families have not completed the confidential income verification form. This can be done easily through your parent portal or we have forms available in each school office. We use these funds for extra interventions for our students, including a classroom paraprofessional who works directly with students. Thank you for completing the form to help us to secure the additional funding.
