Updated PSAT Times/Lunch Request Form

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
Please remember Tuesday, October 25th, is the PSAT Day at GHS.  We have a few updated times as well as a lunch request form for that day below:

11:15:  Students without an extended time accommodation will begin to finish.  Students may leave the building to go home or they can go to the cafeteria to eat lunch.

Students with an extended time accommodation will finish between 12:00 pm and 12:40 pm.  When their classroom is finished, they can also leave or go to the cafeteria to eat lunch.  

After Tuesday's PSAT (Oct. 25th), the cafeteria will have a sack lunch available (Italian sub sandwich, veggie, fruit and a milk).  Please complete this form if your student would like to have a sack lunch on Tuesday (Oct. 25th).  Please complete the form by Monday, Oct. 24th at noon to allow the cafeteria workers to be prepared.

1:00:  Buses will leave campus with any student remaining.

Thanks again for your help through this process! Continue reading

PSAT Day-Oct. 25th

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
Good afternoon.  GHS will give the PSAT on Tuesday, October 25th.  This practice impacts each of the grades in the following way:


9th Grade:  All 9th grade students will take the digital PSAT on this day.  Students who have a school-issued laptop will need to bring this device, fully charged, on this day.  Students who do not have a school-issued laptop will be issued one for this test only.  There may not be extras, so students who have a school-issued laptop, must bring their device fully charged.  


10th Grade:  All 10th Grade students will take the paper-and-pencil PSAT on this day.  

11th Grade.  All 11th Grade students will take the paper-and-pencil PSAT on this day.  

12th Grade:  Distance Learning/Senior Capstone/Visits to Various Community Employers-12th grade students do not report to GHS on this day.


We anticipate the following:


Students without extended time accommodations in 9th, 10th, and 11th grade will finish around 11 am.  If these students have their own ride, they would be allowed to leave at that time.  


Students in these grades with extended time accommodations will finish around 12 pm.   If these students have their own ride, they would be allowed to leave at that time.  


Lunch/Buses:  Lunch will be served for students who would like to eat at school (but they are not required to) and buses will leave campus around 12:30 pm to bring any remaining students home.  

Students receiving text-to-speech accomodations should bring their own headphones.  Also, students in the Quest Program will not be in attendance on this day.

It is very important that 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students be present and on time at 7:30 am on Tuesday, October 25th.  Further, 9th grade students should make sure their school-issued devices are fully charged as their PSAT is done electronically.   Continue reading

2021-2022 Yearbooks

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
Most students picked up their 2021-2022 yearbooks during lunch on May 24; those who did not received multiple passes to pick up on May 25 and May 26. If you did not pick up your yearbook, please email Mrs. Green (dgreen@gws.k12.in.us) to arrange pick up at the high school. Office staff do not have access to yearbooks for students or parents who simply stop by to claim one. 

The spring supplement that contains Prom, graduation, the musical, spring sports, and other spring activities will be distributed in two ways. Graduates will receive their supplements in the mail. Students currently in grades 9-11 will receive theirs when school begins in August. These supplements are designed to peel and stick in the back of the yearbooks. Continue reading

Class of 2023 Senior Pictures - This Summer!

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
Class of 2023 Posing in June

One item that needs to be on senior parents' To Do lists right now is their children’s senior picture.

If this is your first GHS senior, you probably have no idea how senior pictures work. Basically, you can go anywhere to get your child’s senior pictures taken for photos you distribute to friends and family. BUT, your child must pose for his/her yearbook senior picture through Prestige Portraits this summer. You cannot provide a photo taken by somebody else for the yearbook because of specific digital imaging required for yearbook printing. Feel free to use those photos taken by someone else in senior personals -- those messages to seniors in the back of the yearbook -- as long as you have them by October.

To make senior pictures easy for you and your family, Prestige will set up a full studio at GHS in the library from June 20-23 with lots of background choices and props. You will receive an email and a postcard from Prestige with your child’s specific appointment time within the next couple of weeks. If you have a conflict with the date and time assigned, you will contact Prestige to change your appointment using information on that postcard. Prestige can set up full appointments at their studio on the north side of Indianapolis throughout the summer, too, if you’d rather drive to the studio. The key is that you get those photos taken by Prestige before school starts.

If you have questions for Prestige about your appointments or senior pictures in general, you can contact Christine Williams at 317/829-2073 Continue reading
