I would like to wish all of you a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving holiday. I would like to thank the many parents and students that help make our high school one of the best in the area. Our GHS community is strong because of the efforts of our faculty, staff, parents and students. I hope that the next few days are enjoyable as you spend time with family and friends.
I would like to recognize and thank Mrs.Mary Cembrola, librarian for her many years of dedicated service to Grafton High School. Mrs. Cembrola began working at GHS in September 1998 and she has developed our library program into one that students and staff can access in a variety of ways to accommodate their needs. We wish Mrs. Cembrola and her family the very best as she retires from the Grafton Public School system.
Last week we held a school-wide advisory which focused on Health and Stress related topics. There were many positive conversations during this time and we hope to engage students in other activities that focus on their health and address at the same time any concerns that they might have as it relates to school or other areas.

Larry Zwicker, 11th grader at GHS submitted a photo of his work to Highland Hardwoods, our wood supplier in New Hampshire. I was just up there last week and they were amazed at the quality craftsmanship shown in the project. They were also thrilled that the raw materials were supplied by them. Hats off to Larry for his outstanding work as well as his initiative to submit the photo for publication.
Alexander Smith, 12th grader at GHS has a photo of one of his cutting boards featured on Highland Hardwoods website and the project section.
