Win Taylor Swift Tickets

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
GHS Students: What are you doing on Sept. 15? Would you like to win two free tickets plus t-shirts to Taylor Swift’s Reputation tour concert at Lucas Oil Stadium? The yearbook staff has two tickets to the concert from the concert promoter but would love to give them to you. Here’s how you can win these two tickets: First, you have to buy a yearbook by Sept. 4 to be eligible. Extra forms are available online, in the front office, and in Room K105. Secondly, you need to create a lipsync video to 30 seconds of one of Taylor’s songs. You can include as many of your friends as you want, but the prize is only two tickets. All videos can be emailed to droberts@gws.k12.in.us or dropped off at Room K105. Ensure you include your name and the name of the person you intend to take to the concert with you if you win. Submitting an entry gives permission for the yearbook staff and Taylor Swift promoters to use your video lipsync in promotional materials. Continue reading

Welcome From Our Student Services Advisor!

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
Welcome, Freshmen! How exciting is it to be attending high school? You must be experiencing a lot of different emotions right now. No worries, these feelings are normal as you head into your new adventure as a high school student. Things to remember: be on time, be prepared, and be respectful. Be on time to school and each class. You have approximately 5 mins between each class once the bell rings. That’s plenty of time to get to and from each classroom. Will there be challenges? Sure, you’re still learning where classes are, which hallway to travel, and which set of stairs will get you there so you’re not late. Take the first few days of school to learn your way around. GHS is pretty simple to travel. Think about it this way: all English classes are in the same hall. All science is in the same area. If you know how to get to those hallways that’s half the battle! Being prepared for those classes is also very important. Over the first week of school teachers will go over what is needed, (i.e. pencils, binder requirements, spiral notebooks vs loose leaf paper, etc.). Pay attention and write down what is expected of you to be prepared for each of your classes. Respect is a two-way street. If you don’t give it, how do you expect to get it in return? Exactly! You don’t. So, please, think before you speak or act. Everyone deserves respect.

I am so excited to meet you this year and help you along your journey as a Freshman. If you need anything, I am located in the Guidance Office. Parents, my door is open to you, also. If you have any concerns or questions, please let me know. –Ms. Samantha Young, Student Services Advisor syoung@gws.k12.in.us or 317.889.4008 Continue reading

Meet the Teacher Night

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
Parents:  This Thursday, August 10th is Meet the Teacher Night at Greeenwood High School.  Parents will have the opportunity to follow their child’s schedule to meet his/her teacher, hear about classroom policies and practices, and ask questions if time permits.  This event will begin at 5:30 on Thursday.  In addition, parents of Seniors can learn more about Naviance, an online program designed to help in the search for scholarships, college visits and applications and transcript requests in the IMC at 5:00 and then again at 7:30 Thursday night.  Again, this presentation is geared towards the parents of seniors, while the regular event begins at 5:30.

Also, parents, we are experiencing a high volume of traffic in the parking lot between the soccer field and the high school at both drop-off and pick-up.  Please avoid this parking lot, especially the curve at the far end of the lot, between 7:00 and 7:20 and again between 2:10 and 2:35.  Rather, please move towards door 32 on the east side of the building near the football field for both drop-off and pick-up.  Thanks for your help in this process aimed at keeping our students and buses safe.

Have a great evening and we hope to see you on Thursday night! Continue reading
