It is time to make appointments to meet with teachers on October 29. This year we are once again using PTCFast for scheduling. Teachers will be available from noon until 7PM to discuss your child’s academic achievement with you.
Parent invitations went out last week for students who received A-B Honor Roll at Goochland High School during the 2017-18 school year. This includes students in grades 10-12 this year. These students will be recognized by receiving their academic letter award on Thursday, October 25, at either 8:45 (10th grade) or 10:30 (11th and 12th grade) during our Academic Awards Ceremonies. We ask that students who will receive an award that day dress appropriately and change into spirit gear after the ceremony. Please contact your child’s school counselor if you have any questions about these awards assemblies.
Since we are celebrating Homecoming this week, we figured that we might as well have another spirit week for our students and staff. This is just another example of how we turn something negative into a positive experience for our school community. We choose optimism! Here are the homecoming spirit week themes:
- Monday, October 22: America Monday!
- Tuesday, October 23: Honky Tonk Tuesday
- Wednesday, October 24: “Out of this World” Wednesday
- Thursday, October 25: Tailgate Thursday
- Friday, October 26: Class Color Day (see below)
- Seniors wear Red
- Juniors wear White
- Sophomores wear Black
- Freshmen wear Gold/Yellow.
We will conclude the week with our Homecoming Pep Rally on Friday, October 26th. Students are encouraged to wear the class colors listed above. The spirit stick will once again be up for grabs!

GHS will now celebrate Homecoming on Friday, October 26th in our game vs. Prince Edward High School. We will move the Homecoming pep rally to Friday, October 26th as well. We apologize for all of the changes, and we appreciate your patience as we work through the details.
