Attention seniors: end-of-year business

I.  Senior Surveys:  Every senior is required to complete a senior survey. This will give students the opportunity to let us know of their post high school plans. This information will be displayed in the school’s front display case and announced at graduation.

II.  Scholarship/Award Announcements:  All seniors, who received any scholarships/awards/grants should bring a copy of their award letter to Mrs. Davis in the College Guidance Office (108).  All scholarships/awards will be announced at graduation.

III.  Final Transcripts:  Every senior who plans to attend a two or four year college/program/military needs to bring in a stamped (44 cents) envelope, addressed to the school/program of their choice, so that a final transcript can be sent at the end of the year.  Failure to comply with this request may delay your admission to the school.  Envelopes should be dropped off in room 108.  In addition, athletes who plan to play a DI or DII sport must also submit a request for a final transcript to be sent to the NCAA Eligibility Center.

GWHS has joined the Action Team

Our DECA students will be working with the Major League Baseball players and Volunteers of America as part of The Action Team to perform community service as part of their senior graduation project next year.  Phillies’ Ryan Howard and Jimmy Rollins, Boston Red Sox’ Mike Cameron, and other players are sponsoring this program.   That’s a photo of former GWHS students above who participated in the Action Team project three years ago.

Any senior who wants to join this team and earn community service credit can sign up with one of our Action Team Captains:  Lawrence Worcester, Marvin Lane, Eric Smith, and Nicholas Miller, or stop by Room 13.

For more information, check out the Action Team’s latest newsletter which announces GWHS as a member at February 2011 Action Team E-mail Update
