There were many positive events of Homecoming Week and I can’t say enough good things about the time and effort that many of the faculty, staff, students and parents put into the entire week. Additionally, the behavior of our students was outstanding! A total of $2,600 was raised for various charities (Make a Wish Foundation, World Wildlife Fund, No Stomach for Cancer, Worcester County Food Bank) and a total of 1,605 food items were donated to the Grafton Food Bank. We asked our students to meet the challenge of making Homecoming a safe and positive event and they met that challenge.


Thank you very much to the following people/groups:


GHS Students: They were very positive and made this Homecoming Week very successful! The support shown during the competitions, especially for the freshmen was very special. This year’s senior class truly set the bar high for future classes in terms of how to make this week one that all students can be proud of.


GHS Parents: Your donation of food items for the BBQ, Senior Breakfast or Dance is very much appreciated. Additionally, many parents volunteered to work at the BBQ. Without the donations and parents volunteering, these events would not happen.


Mrs. R. Bailey & Mrs. Lachapelle and Student Council for their leadership in organizing many of the activities.


Mrs. Black, Ms. Ciampi (Senior Class Advisors), Mrs. Calandra, Mrs. Senckowski (Junior Class Advisors), Ms. Moriarity, Ms. Jones (Sophomore Class Advisors), Mrs. Ross, Mrs. Durost (Freshmen Class Advisors for working with their specific class and encouraging students to be involved.


Mrs. Black, Ms. Ciampi, Mr. Marando, Mrs. Calandra, Ms. Jones, Ms. Moriarity, Ms. Curran, Ms. Doiran, Mrs. Murphy, Mrs. Wrenn, Mrs. Renner, Mrs. Durost for volunteering to chaperone the dance.
