October is Bully Prevention month, and GHS is happy again to be a part of this celebration. This year’s theme is “Take a Stand, Lend a Hand.” Students will be invited to participate in a variety of events throughout the month designed to promote our GHS Culture of Kindness, ranging from a door decorating contest to signing a pledge to stand against bullying. Students can look for the first of these events to kick off in a colorful way next week before they even enter the building!
All junior and sophomore students should have received practice materials for the upcoming PSAT from school counselors in either history or English classes this week. Students, if you have not received yours, please stop by school counseling to pick the materials up! Remember, this test will be administered the morning of October 11 at GHS and is free of charge to students. It is a wonderful opportunity provided by GCPS for students to practice for their college entrance tests and to connect to college and scholarship information.
