GHS ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR TUESDAY, JANUARY 16, 2018
Are you an upperclassman who enjoys reading and competition? Do you want an academic extracurricular to make your college applications more competitive? Talk to Mr. Caskey about joining the English Academic Super Bowl team! This year’s theme is World War I and we’re reading a short, classic Hemingway novel, “A Farewell to Arms.” There are minimal after school commitments and low pressure. It’s nothing but fun!
There will be a meeting for all returning volleyball girls from last year’s team in Mrs. Schmucker’s room (1010) with Coach Barger immediately after school TODAY. The meeting will not last long, but you will need to find a ride home other than a school bus.
REMINDER: Students who bring athletic equipment or winter guard equipment like drill rifles, tennis racquets, golf clubs, or baseball/softball bats, are required to leave them in their cars. If they do not have a vehicle in which to store them during the school day, they are welcome to bring them into the building, but must drop them off in their coach’s class, the athletic office, or the music/band offices. Thanks for your cooperation for keeping these implements out of the GHS hallways.
The winter dance is Friday from 9:30-11:30 p.m. in Whiteman gym. It is semi-formal, so please dress-up. The tickets will be sold during lunch for $5 THIS week. The DJ is taking song requests and plans on playing music from all different cultures!

These forms are due TOMORROW.
Power tools, sound/light boards, costumes, makeup, hair, or set construction; sound interesting?! Then working behind the scenes for this year’s musical “Tarzan” is the exact place for you!
