As we have closed out the winter athletic season, our athletics department would like to hear feedback from our parents and student-athletes. Parents, please use the link to the Parent End of Season Survey and students should use the link to the Student-Athlete End of Season Survey to provide us with commendations and suggestions for improvement. We look forward to reviewing the results!
This week we celebrate our school counselors during National School Counseling Week! Secondary school counselors enhance the learning process and promote academic achievement. This week at GHS, we want to thank Beth Fowler, Doug Getter, and Ashton Guza for their hard work and dedication to provide our students with outstanding support. Please join me by taking a moment this week to let them know how much you appreciate them!
The school counseling department will host Senior Information Night for Parents on Wednesday, September 19, 2018, at 6:30 in the Learning Commons at GHS.

It will also include a brief outline of resources for completing financial aid documents and finding scholarship applications. Please join us for this important session!

Our school division will be taking part in the biennial PRIDE Survey on January 17. The results of this survey will help Goochland County Public Schools design, adjust, and implement programs that promote student health and school safety, such as a reducKon in adolescent tobacco use and bullying behavior. Please see the attached letter from GCPS for further details.
We’ve recently learned that our MCJROTC program at GHS had its federal funding cut and is in danger of being forced to operate at reduced efficiency and without federal financial resources. Please review the document attached for more details. It was shared with the School Board at their regular meeting on December 12, 2017. It is a public document that is a part of their agenda packet. Please use this information to contact our lawmakers in Washington D.C. We will hold a Town Hall Meeting in order to answer any questions you may have regarding our program. The make-up date from the previously schedule meeting on January 9th is TBD.
