We’ve challenged our Bulldog Family to use this Padlet as a place to voice all of the wonderful things, people, experiences, etc. for which they are grateful. We know that practicing gratitude can help retrain our brain to look at things more positively. We invite you to do the same and document your thankfulness here, too, each day until Thanksgiving break. We are all in this toGether!

We are excited to announce that GHS will continue the Sick Kicks Shoe Drive program once again this year. Sick Kicks was started by a 2020 graduating senior, Eli Bowman, as a way to give back to his community by donating new and gently used shoes to kids in need throughout our community. Now it has been passed down to two seniors in the Class of 2021, Haiden McCourt and Keeley Shoemaker. We will begin collecting shoe donations on Monday, November 16th, and will have the final collection day on Wednesday, December 9th. These dates have been chosen in order to allow maximum time for donations to be accepted and to allow enough time for the organizing, sanitizing, and sorting of the shoes to prepare them for distribution on Saturday, December 12th. If you would like to donate shoes, please drop them off at the high school during the school day in the hallway near the front entrance. We will have a donation box in the foyer. Please do not hesitate to reach out to Haiden (firstname.lastname@example.org), Keeley (email@example.com), or me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions. See the flyer below for details.
The GHS National Honor Society and Interact Club have partnered with the Goochland Christmas Mother to hold a canned food drive this week, November 16th – 20th. There will be a collection bin outside at the main entrance of the high school all week as well as a collection bin in the cafeteria for students who are attending school in-person. While all canned goods are appreciated, the Goochland Christmas Mother has specifically requested canned meat and peanut butter donations. Please consider donating to this worthy cause!
The Goochland Drama Department will stream a virtual theatre performance of the classic Christmas tale, It’s A Wonderful Life on December 4th and 5th at 7:00 pm, and December 6th at 2:00 pm.
