All spring sports, except boys tennis, begin practices/tryouts on Tuesday, February 22nd. Student-athletes must have a physical on file to participate.
Black History Month
In addition to the instructional activities in students’ core academic classes, students in our African American History class are completing a cross-curricular poster assignment for Black History Month. This project highlights African American history and American history that stems from African American and Afro-Latin heritage. Students will create posters with a scannable QR-code that allows their classmates to answer a trivia question about a specific contributor. We will cap off the month with a student-planned Black History Month Assembly on Thursday, February 24th, with student performances from our band, chorus, and theater arts students featuring African Americans whose influence is far-reaching in the arts. Students will also hear original poetry from a GHS student and have the opportunity to win prizes during a game show.
We are incredibly excited to celebrate the accomplishments of these great American heroes!
Boys tennis will start practice on February 28th, at 3:45 pm at the tennis courts. Student-athletes must have a physical on file to participate. Please contact Coach Webb with any questions at email@example.com.
