Our 1st year Veterinary Assistant Program through Goochland Tech is off and running. Take a look at some of the pictures taken from their lesson on holding animals for examination last Friday!
Participating in class has a huge impact on a student’s academic success, for this reason September has been designated as Attendance Awareness Month. Attendance is essential to school success, and families play a key role in making sure students get to school on time every day. Chronic absence–missing 10 percent of the school year, or just 2-3 days every month–can translate to third-graders unable to master reading, sixth-graders failing courses, and ninth-graders dropping out of high school. GHS is committed to spreading awareness about how attendance directly impacts a student’s success in school. We invite you to read the attached handout, “Pay Attention to Attendance: Build the Habit of Good Attendance” to learn more about how attendance can impact a student’s success in school and to access tools for you to help prioritize attendance in your family. We look forward to working with you this school year in making school attendance a priority!
Parents: Have you been keeping up with your student’s classes on Schoology? If you would like more detailed information about assignments and class materials, sign up for a parent Schoology account. It only takes a few minutes. If you do not have a parent code yet, request one from any of your student’s teachers, then follow the instructions on the Schoology support page.
Back to School Night is tomorrow night from 5:30-7pm. We invite you to come meet your son’s or daughter’s teachers and learn about the wonderful things we are doing in our classrooms each day. Teachers will provide visiting parents with a course overview and answer questions about the curriculum and assignments. We will host a parent/teacher night after report cards are distributed in October for specific grading questions.
The Goochland community now has its very own Community Care App, which provides quick and easy access to a variety of information regarding mental health services, parent support, crisis services, and other resources available nearby. You can download this app for free on both Apple and Android devices. Please see the attached flyer for further information and share with others you think may benefit from this resource.
The Goochland FFA will host another Fall Mum Sale this Friday starting at 4:00 until 6:00pm. We will not start selling until 4:00pm. We only have 225 mums. First come, first serve! The GHS FFA will be sending 8 students to the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, IN. Donations will be accepted and greatly appreciated to help off set the cost. Our goal is to raise $2000.00. Please come and support the GHS FFA.
Mums are $5.00 each
6 Mums for $25.00
Thank you so much for your help.
