Google Hangout With Congressman Cantor
Seniors in Mrs. Yearout-Patton’s AP Government class had the opportunity to ask tough questions of their representative in Congress. Eric Cantor joined the students in the classroom via Google Hangout. Also joining the discussion were seniors from New Kent County. Questions ranged in topic from the Farm Bill to college tuition assistance and funding for women’s health.
Thank you, Congressman Cantor and Mrs. Yearout-Patton, for making this possible for our students.
Make plans to attend the Career Fair at Goochland High School on Wednesday, November 20 from noon until 2:00p.m.

Dress for success, polish your resume, and be ready for new adventures.
JROTC Night November 14
In the fall of 2014, Goochland High School students will have the opportunity to participate in a Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (MCJROTC) program, the first for Goochland! The application and approval for this program has taken more than a year and included a visit in April by the colonel in charge of the East Coast MCJROTC programs and final approval from the Secretary of the Navy in August. Since the approval of our program, we are pleased to announce the hiring of Maj. Michael Petruzziello and Staff Sgt. Dan Strong to establish and lead the GHS program and students.
Our MCJROTC program will be open to all students in grades 9-12. It will start as a one-year program and expand over the next four years into a four-year program. MCJROTC will count as a student elective, but it is important to note that there is no commitment or obligation for a cadet to join the military upon graduation from GHS.
An orientation session for students, parents, and the community will be held November 14 at 7:30 p.m. at GHS. Come join us and learn about this new program, and participate in a question and answer session with the instructors!
The All Night Graduation Committee is raising funds through the sale of the Bulldog Discount Card. This $10 card earns you discounts with local merchants. The proceeds from the sale of the card help the Senior Class have a safe and fun place to celebrate their graduation without the risks of driving late at night.
There are other fundraising events benefitting the ANG effort.
The Noel November Holiday Bazaar will feature craft vendors from across the county from 8a.m. to 2p.m. on Saturday, November 9th. The event will be held at the GHS lunch room. Join us for raffles, door prizes, and a visit from Santa. Interested vendors should contact Gina Saunders at 338-1513 by November 4th.
The annual Poinsettia and Christmas Cactus Sale is under way from now until November 25. Download the form (PDF Order Form) and make checks payable to GHS ANG. All plants will be available for pick up on December 5 between 3 and 7p.m. at the GHS lunch room.
