We will celebrate the accomplishments of our fall sport athletes during our annual Fall Sports Awards Assembly on Wednesday, December 18th at 6:00 pm. Student-athletes and their parents or guardians should make plans to attend. We look forward to acknowledging our Bulldog athletes for their hard work and dedication during the fall athletic season.
The GHS Dance Company will perform in their Winter Dance Recital on Wednesday, December 11th at 6:30 pm in the auditorium. Come out and support our dancers as they display their talents through classical and modern dance routines!
Also, come out to support the Goochland High School Performing Arts department next Friday, December 13th at 7:00 pm. The GHS Jazz Band, Acapella Club, Jazz Choir, Concert Choir, Concert Band, and Percussion Ensemble will be collaborating to bring a Holiday Celebration to Goochland High School. Admission is free, so join our students as they bring in the holiday season.
As a reminder, this week is shortened for the Thanksgiving holiday. GCPS schools will be closed Wednesday through Friday to observe the holiday. We would like to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving! We hope that each member of our Bulldog family is able to spend quality time with loved ones and friends as we celebrate and give thanks.
The Goochland Christmas Mother has asked Goochland High School to donate jars of peanut butter and canned meats for families in need. Students, please bring supplies to your Bulldog Block classroom by Monday, November 25th. The Bulldog Block that brings in the most cans and jars will win a free donut party during the first week of December. Let’s show off our kind Bulldog Spirit by donating to make a difference!
Goochland High School’s STEM Day on November 6th was a huge success! What is STEM Day, you say? STEM Day is a chance for students to learn more about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, and its relevance, through a team-based project or challenge. All STEM Day activities involved collaboration between two teachers (a science or CTE teacher with an English, history or foreign language teacher) and focused on development of critical life skills such as teamwork, communication, critical thinking, creativity and problem solving. While each pair of classes completed a different project, the projects all allowed students to learn about specific STEM concepts and see how those concepts connect to other content areas and are relevant to our everyday lives. Check out the amazing collaborations between content areas HERE that provided rich learning experiences for our students. A big thank you to our STEM Day leads, Ms. Desmarais and Ms. Borgie, for putting this all together!
