Graduation tickets can be picked up in the main office if you have not done so already. If you have graduation tickets that you will not be using please turn those in to the main office as soon as possible. 

Extra Graduation Tickets:  We are currently out of extra graduation tickets.  There is overflow seating available in the auditorium for those without tickets.  They will be able to sit in there and see a live feed of the graduation……and it’s air conditioned!

INFO FOR THIS WEEK:  The EACC and Merit bus will leave @ 11:50 a.m. after the morning finals.  Seniors, your last day at EACC is TODAY.  You are expected to be at graduation rehearsal tomorrow.  Juniors, your last day at EACC is tomorrow.  If you are a junior graduating early you need to be here for rehearsal.  Tomorrow, juniors will need to be here to catch the EACC bus by 11:50 a.m.

Class of 2016:  You are invited to the Baccalaureate Ceremony (a religious program) on Thursday, June 2nd from 6-6:30 p.m. in the auditorium.  Line up in the cafeteria by 5:45 p.m.  Senior Awards Night (a program to recognize achievements in many areas) will follow at 7:00 p.m.  Line up in the cafeteria by 6:45 p.m.  Both of these events are optional and are open to seniors, your family and friends.  If you choose to attend, you MUST wear your cap and gown.

Seniors:  Thanks for all you have done to make GHS a great place over the past four years!  Mr. Kissinger will read your names at graduation.  The list he has may or may not have your middle name, it may or may not all the surnames you would like and, of course, is not sounded out phonetically for him.  For this reason, he will make himself available with the list several times this week for you to help him pronounce your name correctly.  He will be at the stairs by the weight room during lunch TODAY, he will be in the commons outside the cafeteria for lunch tomorrow and he will attend graduation practice briefly.  Please try to take care of this during one of the lunch periods if at all possible.  Thanks again for four really impressive years!

All current freshmen, sophomores and juniors interested in participating in a sport next school year will need a new physical exam for participation.  All physical paperwork can be picked up from the athletic office or found on line.  Please take care of this right away.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  In looking back at your classroom and sports performance this past school year, what have you learned about yourself?  Hopefully you tasted some success and learned from your mistakes.  But more importantly, I hope you have developed a work ethic and attitude that will benefit you going forward.  Eleven-time Grand Slam tennis champion Novak Djokovic admitted in Sports Illustrated that “there were days and times of my career when I went through a lot of doubt.”  So whether you are a graduating senior or just starting your high school experience, know there will be tough times and a lot of doubt.  No student-athlete is exempt!  Not even the most successful ones.
