I would like to thank Mrs. Cimoch and students in Peer Leaders and SADD that sponsored Health Topics week. Guest speakers came to our school and spoke to Health classes along with students reading announcements as well as distributing information throughout the week. The topics that were discussed are very important for our students to participate in.
I would like to thank the many parents that attended the production of Rent this past weekend. The students worked very hard to put to on this show. Also, thank you to Mr. Trombley and Mrs. Rossiter for their efforts with the Rent productions.
ACTS OF KINDNESS WEEK
Thank you to Mrs. Lachapelle and Mrs. R. Bailey for their leadership in working with students to sponsor the special events during this week.
This week Student Council is sponsoring Acts of Kindness Week. Students are encouraged to take part in the various activities that are taking place throughout the week. The days are as follows:
Share a Smile
“What's my name”
Also, there will be an Acts of Kindness tree up in the commons at the beginning of the week. Throughout the week, students can take a leaf and write an act of kindness on it and put it on the tree. The goal by the end of the week is to have a full tree of acts of kindness from the student body.
In addition, each student has written a six-word memoir in which they described an aspect of themselves in six words. Some of them are extremely funny while others have a more serious demeanor. Each is unique to the individual who wrote it and reveals how we need to be more mindful of what we say and do because we don’t truly know everyone. The goal is for students to be more aware of the power of kindness in a school community. These have been hung throughout the commons for all to see and will remain there for the entirety of the week.
Help create a positive atmosphere at school and participate in Acts of Kindness Week!
All grades for third quarter will be finalized by of this week. A reminder for seniors that the fourth quarter is shorter than the first three quarters, therefore all of their work must be completed in a shorter timeframe.
All students will be asked to take a school survey during advisory . This survey was developed by our GHS School Council which is made up of faculty, staff, students and parents.
Best Buddies Prom
The third annual "Best Buddies Prom" was a great success. On Friday April 4, over thirty members of the Grafton HS Best Buddies attended a prom hosted by Oxford HS Best Buddies. This was a great event and a true example of kindness and friendship.
