Auditions for the spring musical “Camelot” will begin TODAY. All those wishing to audition should come prepared to sing 60 to 90 seconds of a song of your choice. It can be anything! We will have an accompanist. So bring your favorite Christmas song, fight song, Broadway song or even a hymn and audition after school TODAY. This is going to be another outstanding GHS production!
Students should take a look at their 2nd semester schedules in Skyward, within the next two weeks. Please do this as soon as possible. If there is a missing period in your schedule or a class you are no longer taking please fill out the “Schedule Issue” form and return it to guidance. You can get these form from teachers, your SRT teacher or the guidance office. Please do this by December 9th. Guidance will not make student request changes when we return in January, only teacher change requests. Your schedule must be changed before you leave for Christmas break. We are trying to eliminate starting the 2nd semester with a lot of changes. We know there will be some changes if you fail a class, or a teacher makes a recommendation for a change in placement. Don’t wait until the last minute, the class you want may be full!
IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: Do you set goals for yourself in the classroom and in your sport? Do you follow through at the end of your grading period and the conclusion of your sport’s season and grade your results? For the student who may be struggling, or the athlete that is going through a slump, have you ever thought of setting short term goals? Short term goals are easier to track and they can supply instant gratification and encouragement if you achieve them. If you are having a tough challenge or not achieving the playing time and results you desire, think about setting short term goals that challenge you in the short term. Whether it’s to work harder, make your teammates better or just impressing your coach, do the things necessary to separate yourself from the others on your team!
Any student interested in competing in this year’s National Shakespeare Competition should see Mr. Garvin in room 2220 prior to finals week. Get the information so you have time to practice over break!
