For any student that attended meetings with Ms. Yost to generate ideas on how we should properly honor our years at the Redskins and how we celebrate the new “RedHawk” mascot, there is a meeting at 6:00 p.m. tonight in the GHS cafeteria with alumni to discuss some more ideas.  You are welcome to attend this meeting to give more input.
