On behalf of the GLHS Staffulty (Staff and Faculty), I would like to thank all the parents who volunteered to serve cotton candy to our second quarter Renaissance Card holders and those parents who provided the food and drinks for parent teacher conference night on Thursday, February 23! Thank you for Making It Matter!
Please join us on Monday, March 5 at 6:00 pm for two Community University courses. One course, which I am facilitating, is Twitter 101: What is it? How does it work? Why use it? This course will take place in the GLHS Technology Center, located in Jefferson Hall (formerly C building). You are encouraged to park in the Havens Corner parking lot and enter the northeast door. The door will be open until 6:15 for security purposes.
The second class is Life Choices, Challenges, and Consequences, which is a presentation and conversation about how to help your student navigate through life with success. You are encouraged to bring your student to this course. The course will be taught by Community Resource Officer, Marvin Hixon, in the GLHS Library Media Center.
We are having our third annual “Spread the Word to End the Word” campaign on Wednesday, March 7. This is a nationwide event to remove the word “retarded” from our vocabulary. Students spread the message by purchasing and wearing a “Spread the Word” t-shirt and they sign a pledge to end the word. Proceeds go towards our MD class curricular activities. The last two years over 3,000 students have signed the pledge.
I hope you are able to attend one of the classes and please take a couple of minutes to review the Spread the Word website to learn more about this worthy campaign. Until next time…
