Scene from GHS

Our Courtyard

Ms. Yearout-Patton and Ms. Gates have been working with seniors from GHS and third grade students from RES to remodel the courtyards at both schools. On Thursday, April 10, all the students converged at GHS for a workday. They removed weeds, mulched the bushes and trees, painted murals and doors, and built and filled a planter. Here is a slide show documenting the day. Enjoy!

Senior Class Video

Do you have old pictures of school events of this year’s senior class? Baby pictures of your classmates? Help Mr. Bouwens put together a great slide show for the end of the year.

Get your pictures to Mr. Bouwens in electronic format. No prints, please.

1.  You can bring them in on a USB drive or burnt on a CD/DVD
2.  You can submit them by using Dropittome (get the password from Ms. Yearout-Patton, Mr. Bouwens, or Ms. Cantor)
3.  You can post them on twitter by using the tag @ghsseniorpics

If you need help scanning prints, see Ms. Cantor between 8:00 and 8:20 any morning.

Empty Bowls Fundraiser

Are you coming to the Goochland Festival of the Arts? Be sure to stop by the GHS cafeteria to check out the beautiful ceramics on sale.
