YOU MUST BE STAYING AFTER SCHOOL FOR SOMETHING TO PARTICIPATE IN THIS – The GHS cafeteria is offering free after school snacks every day after school STARTING THIS WEEK.  This program is for any student who is staying after school. All student-athletes, club members, music participants, drama participants, after school homework help kids, etc. are strongly encouraged to stop by the cafeteria after school and take advantage of this generous opportunity.  Students just need to show their ID and they can grab a healthy snack to go that will hold them over during their after school activities until dinner.  The cafeteria will stay open until 3:50 p.m. to hand out the snacks. All students picking up the healthy snack after school will need to eat their snack in the cafeteria.  We appreciate your cooperation with this adjustment that is mandated by the state of Indiana in order to continue this program.

Help support the girls soccer program by eating a scrumptious pie made by Dan’s Pies out of North Webster! Pies are sold through September 13th, and will be ready the week of October 7th. Find a JV/varsity player to place your order or find Coach Bontreger or Coach Hulbert here at GHS to order as well!

Juniors:  Next Tuesday, September 17th, is the BE the Best Leadership Workshop on Conflict Resolution and Sportsmanship.  All of you, regardless of the season of your sport, are strongly encouraged to attend.  You must sign up this week in the athletic office or with Mr. Kissinger at lunch tomorrow.  The program starts at 8:25 a.m. in the auditorium and runs through SRT.  You must be there all of 2nd period and both sessions of SRT.

Homework help is available every Tuesday and Thursday in room 1190 from 3:45-4:50 p.m. You must be in room 1190 by 3:50 p.m. in order to stay for this. You are expected to exit the building through door M where a bus will be available at 5:00 p.m. if you need a ride home. This bus is for students who stay for after-hours help ONLY. This is a great opportunity if you just need a little extra time or even just a quiet place to do your homework at the end of the day.

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.
