Student Bible Fellowship (SBF) will meet on Thursday mornings at 7:45 a.m. in room 3180. This student-led group gathers weekly for fellowship, encouragement, and study of biblical texts. Please contact Elli Rauch, Lily Byng, or Valeria Murillo for more information.
GHS athletic contests will be starting soon! The price of admission at the ticket gates is $5 for soccer, volleyball, and lower level football and $6 for varsity football. The best deal for students is to purchase a non-transferrable Activity ID for $40. This gets you access to all regular season athletic events. See Mrs. Haney in the main office to purchase one. Another great deal is to purchase a $20 punch card from the athletic office with five free admissions. This is transferrable so you can share with your friends, but is not honored at any football games.
REMINDER: Any student driving needs to have a parking tag. You can get this through Mrs. Haney in the Bookkeeper’s office. You need to have a valid license, valid registration, valid proof of insurance (this means that none of these can be expired), and $5. You don’t want to be the proud new owner of a big orange sticker.
You are under no circumstances allowed to lock your bike up to any fence or gate on school property. There has been a problem with students specifically doing this along the fence/gate to the soccer fields. If you continue to do this, your lock will be cut, and your bike will be removed. There are bike racks available, and they should be used. Thank you for your cooperation with this!
After school, it is expected that all students exit the building by 3:50 p.m. If you have an after school activity, you should report to the sponsor’s room responsible for that activity by 3:50 p.m. You are not to remain in the hallways or commons after 3:50 p.m. Thank you for your cooperation with this request.
Free/reduced lunch forms are available in the bookkeeper’s office, in the cafeteria and in guidance. Please pick one up if you need it!
WORK PERMITS: When you get a work permit EVERY box needs to be filled out on the Intent to Employ form before we will issue you the work permit. Please bring completed forms to the main office in the morning and they will be completed by the end of the school day.
If you are a student that leaves the building at any time during normal school hours then you must have a sticker on your ID if it’s for a class (PACT, Building Trades, EACC, Merit, shortened schedules, Red Zone, internship, yearbook, etc.) that indicates that or a blue pass from the office indicating that you have permission to leave. GTV and Red Zone students are also required to sign out at the Welcome Center before leaving. You can get this sticker in the main office from Mrs. Wolfe or Mrs. Kuiper.
Just a reminder that if you are coming to see Ms. Tovar you need to check in with the staff in the main office and fill out a request to see her. She will send a white pass for you as she has time. Please do not cut through the nurse’s office to get to her. You need to enter through the main office.
MEETINGS DURING SRT:
There will be a boys basketball call out meeting in Mr. Wohlford’s room, 1420, on Tuesday, August 27th during the 2nd session of SRT. This meeting is for all boys not currently in a fall sport.
