ASVAB

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
On September 24th, students enrolled in Preparing for College and Careers this semester will be taking the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery. The ASVAB is a well-researched aptitude test that measures developed abilities and helps predict future academic and occupational success. ASVAB Career Exploration Program is designed to help young people explore their options and make a plan.

ASVAB results are reported to students and counselors on the ASVAB Summary Results sheet. Scores are released to military recruiters 7 calendar days after results are mailed to the school, without phone numbers. To request that your student's scores not be provided to military recruiters, please complete this form

Students who do not pass either the Math 10 or English portion of the ISTEP+ exam may be eligible to use their ASVAB score to graduate without using the waiver process. Therefore it is vital that students put forth their best effort during the ASVAB administration.

Distance Learning Students

Students who are currently participating in distance learning are encouraged to come to the building to participate in the testing administration. Any students taking the ASVAB should report to the cafeteria by 7:25 am. If your student is a distance learner and is planning on coming to school to participate in the ASVAB administration, please complete this form.   Continue reading

Picture Day!

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
GHS school pictures will take place next week. To help maintain social distancing, we will spread out our school pictures over two days in the varsity gym. Students will go with their English classes to the gym for photos, according to this schedule:

GHS students with the following English teachers will pose on Tuesday, August 25:

Mrs. Bonham

Mr. Campbell

Mrs. Grider

Mrs. Smithey

Mrs. Hanek-Williams

GHS students with the following English teachers will pose on Wednesday, August 26:

Mrs. Allen

Mrs. Cinnamon

Mrs. Kendall

Mrs. Senac

Mr. Williams

Special Education teachers will select either day and should inform their students’ parents when those pictures will take place.

All remote learners will pose after school on August 25. Letters detailing the school picture process for remote learners went out in the mail last Friday. You should receive your letter soon if you haven’t already received it. The remote learner schedule for August 25 only will be:

2:30 – 3:45 p.m.        Last Names A – J    

4:00 – 5:00 p.m.        Last Names K – Z

All students in Grades 9-11 will receive school picture order forms in English class tomorrow. English teachers will have extra forms in their rooms, and extra forms will be available in the front office.

Seniors: Parents can order these school pictures for students in Grade 12, too, and their English teachers have forms available in class. Our Senior Portrait photography company is fine-tuning the plan for our special Senior Pictures. Please be patient; I will share info as soon as I have it. In the meantime, ensure your seniors look nice for next week’s regular school picture day because these photos taken will be used for their transcripts that employers, recruiters, college admission officers, scholarship committees, and other important people in their lives will see.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at droberts@gws.k12.in.us Continue reading
