Patio Expansion

As a reminder, the back patio will be closed to students and staff as the patio expansion project continues this week. Upon completion, this project will ultimately provide greater outdoor space for students. Once again, any students who enter the building from the back parking lot must enter through Door 3 near the greenhouse in the mornings and afternoons rather than through the cafeteria doors. 

Poinsettia Sale

It’s that time again! Please consider ordering beautiful Poinsettias from our very own Southern States to support Goochland County All Night Graduation.

Sick Kicks Shoe Drive

Goochland High School is continuing the Sick Kicks Shoe Drive program again this year! The final collection day will be Wednesday, December 1st. This deadline will provide us with enough time for organizing, sanitizing, and sorting the shoes to prepare them for distribution on Saturday, December 11th.

If you would like to donate shoes, please drop them off at the high school in the hallway near the front entrance during the school day. We have a donation box in the foyer. We will also accept donations during home football games throughout the fall. Please do not hesitate to reach out to Hailey (, Easton (, or me ( with any questions.
