September 14, 2014

 

I would like to thank members of the Student Council and Mrs. R. Bailey and Mrs. Lachapelle for their efforts in organizing the Back to School Rally last Friday. We've had a positive start to the school year and many of our co-curricular groups are conducting meetings after school. Students should listen to the announcements or check out the TV screens throughout the school for the dates and times of meetings. Thank you to the many parents and students that have attended some of our school events this year. 

 

Also, thank you to Mrs. Renner and members of the Chamber Choir. They sang God Bless America for our 9/11 Ceremony over the PA system on Thursday. Dean Patulek also did a great job in reading the Pledge of Allegiance. 

 

This Friday, Peer Leaders under the direction of Mrs. Cimoch will hold its annual New Student Breakfast. This is a positive event for us to welcome new students to the Grafton Community. 

 

STARS

Our STARS program recognizes faculty, staff and students for any positive contributions that they have made at GHS. Students and Staff can nominate someone for a STAR, by completing a form that can be found in the main office. We want to highlight the many positive things that happen at our school on a daily basis.

 

CLASS OF 2015 MEETING

Seniors will meet with their guidance counselor during Extended Block on Monday. We will announce the room assignments in the morning. All seniors received an email with the specific information about this meeting. The schedule for meetings for the rest of the week for students are: Tuesday-Grade 11, Wednesday-Grade 10, Thursday-Grade 9.

 

PRINCIPAL'S COFFEE

On Monday at 8:00a.m., an informal meeting will be held for any parent that wishes to meet with administration. This event will take place in the main office and there is an opportunity for parents to meet and discuss any school related topic. 

GRADE 9 & 10 STUDENTS -BLACKSTONE VALLEY EDUCATION FOUNDATION PROGRAM

If you are a grade 9 & 10 student interested in this program, please see one of the administrators in the main office. 

Our Youth Leadership Academy will soon begin for the 2014-2015 school year.  Our coordinator for the Leadership Academy, Megan Potenti, not only has a background in education but she also has excellent experience with student leadership having served as a staff member of the statewide Massachusetts Association of Student Councils Summer Leadership Camp for student high school leaders from throughout the state.  Megan is clearly a dedicated educator who is looking forward to helping YOUR students develop their own leadership qualities!

Please visit our website www.Bveducationfoundation.org and click on ‘Upcoming Events’ to find the application and schedule for the Youth Leadership Academy.  We ask that you recommend TWO students per school district to participate.  There may be room for three students from a school on a case by case basis.  This is an incredible opportunity for 9th and 10th grade students to develop leadership skills now that will prove beneficial to them through their high school years and beyond. 

The cost is $75.00 per student from BVEF member school districts.  

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE YOUTH LEADERSHIP ACADEMY KICK-OFF IS SCHEDULED FOR SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 1st  9:00 A.M. – 1:00 P.M.  THE GROUP WILL THEN MEET AN ADDITIONAL ELEVEN TIMES ON TUESDAY AFTERNOONS FROM 3:00-5:30 P.M.
