PSAT Testing Day (10/26)

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
Tuesday, October 26 is PSAT Testing Day


On Tuesday, October 26, GHS will be administering the PSAT to all students grades 9-11. The PSAT provides students and teachers important data that helps determine students' level of college and career readiness, and it better prepares students for the SAT exam. 


Testing Time:

Officially, October 26 will be an E-Learning day for students grades 9-12. Students in grades 9-11 will be expected to be in attendance at GHS for the PSAT exam. The exam will begin sharply at 7:30am, and we anticipate students to be released at approximately 11:00am. Once students are dismissed from their testing room, they may either exit the building for the day or report to the cafeteria for lunch. Students who have an IEP or 504 (allowing additional time) should finish the PSAT exam at approximately 12:15pm (noon).  


Seniors will not report to GHS on Tuesday, October 26. Since October 26 is an E-Learning day, seniors will be expected to complete assignments at home. We also encourage all seniors to schedule senior capstone mentoring hours on this day. 


Lunch:

Students (grades 9-11) are not required to eat lunch at GHS; however, we will provide a regular lunch for all students (9-11) if they report to the cafeteria after the exam. 


Buses:

Students (grades 9-11) are permitted to leave the building once the school releases them from the testing room. If students do not have a ride home, busses will pick students up at 12:30pm and drop them off at their regular bus stop. All students riding the bus home must remain in the cafeteria until busses arrive at 12:30pm. Students are not permitted to leave the campus and return to catch a bus home.  Continue reading

Picture Retakes - Oct. 1

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News

School Picture Retakes - October 1, 2021

Next Friday, Oct. 1, is School Picture Retake Day. Only students who fall into one of these categories will pose on Oct. 1 during English class:

  • Any student in grades 9-12 who was absent on the original picture day in August will pose – even if they do not want to order pictures.
  • Any student who ordered pictures in August but were unhappy with their pictures. These students must return the full picture package to the photographer to pose again. Please know that all students who did not purchase picture packages received proofs in case parents wanted to order. These are not considered packages to be returned to pose again.
  • Students who are ordering pictures taken on Retake Day should pose. Students can pick up Retake Day order forms in the front office or you can use the information sheet and order form emailed to all parents on Sept. 23. Remember, you can order online, too, using the information and code from the Retake Information Sheet. These forms have different codes than the forms used in August so ensure you are not using the August form or a code from an August form.  
Parents of Seniors: The Oct. 1 Picture Retakes have nothing to do with your seniors' special Senior Portraits. Last Chance Senior Portraits are scheduled for next Monday and Tuesday. If your senior did not pose in June in the IMC for Senior Portraits and did not drive up to the north side to the Prestige studio to pose, you should have received a letter about your appointment on Monday or Tuesday (Sept. 27 & 28). If you did not or have misplaced it, please contact Ms. Roberts at droberts@gws.k12.in.us today.  Continue reading

9/1 - GHS Yearbook & Senior Personal Deadline

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
Sept. 1 is a big day at GHS.


Orders for the 2021-2022 yearbook are due Sept. 1.
You can order with a check or cash using the attached form or order online through www.Jostensyearbooks.com. If you order online, make sure you select the yearbook for Greenwood Community High School in Indiana. We’ve had a few parents actually order yearbooks from Greenwood High Schools in other states, and that causes a pretty big problem. When purchasing online, you do have the option to pay on a payment plan. Sept-1-deadline.pdf

And, Sept 1 is the final deadline for people to order Senior Personals for the yearbook.
You can order with a check or cash using the attached form. 2022-Senior-Personals-due-090121.pdf

If you have questions, feel free to reach out to Denise Roberts at droberts@gws.k12.in.us or 317/889-4000 ext. 3142 Continue reading

School Pictures Days (8/19 & 8/20)

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
GHS School Picture days will take place today and tomorrow. School Picture information / order forms were distributed in English classes last week, but I've attached info to the bottom of this blog for parents. 

Students who have Mrs. Bonham, Mr. Campbell, Mrs. Grider, Mrs. Senac, and Mrs. Allen will pose during English classes on Thursday, Aug. 19.

Students who have Mrs. Smithey, Mrs. Williams, Mr. Williams, Mrs. Kuntz (Cinnamon), and Mrs. Hayes will pose during English classes on Friday, Aug. 20.

**Although seniors pose for special Senior Portraits for the yearbook, they also will pose next week for transcript and ID photos. Because future employers, college admission officers, scholarship committees, and other people important to their futures will see these transcript photos, seniors are encouraged to look nice for them.

Start of School Reminders

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
Good evening. Just a reminder that school begins tomorrow at 7:30 am. Students, please log into PowerSchool this evening or in the morning to view your schedule because there have been many changes since schedule pickup. Please write down your lunch number and your locker combination to help tomorrow go well. If you did not get a school issued device and need one, they can be picked up before school outside the tech office. Finally, all drivers should allow extra time and show patience as we get everyone in and out of the school lots safely. We hope you had a great summer and we look forward to seeing you in the morning! Continue reading

2020-2021 Yearbook Spring Supplement Distribution

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
The yearbook staff wants your 2020-2021 yearbook to be complete, which means it needs to contain spring activities and spring sports. To do this, the yearbook staff created a special spring supplement designed to peel and stick into the back of your yearbook.

To simplify supplement distribution this year, here are 3 ways 2020-2021 yearbook purchasers can get their supplements:

1.  All graduates can look for supplements to arrive in the mail. The goal is to have these in the mail by July 19.

2.  Students who were in grades 9 - 11 last year can pick up their supplements in LGI 1 (the room across from the school library) on July 26 between 8 a.m. - Noon. July 26 is the first day of Device & Information Pick-Up at the high school. 

3.  Students who were in grades 9 - 11 last year can wait until school begins. Supplements that were not picked up on July 26 will be distributed to these students during class between Aug 9 - 13. 

Parents of students in grades 9 - 11 who received 2020-2021 yearbooks but will not be returning to GHS this year should email Ms. Roberts at droberts@gws.k12.in.us with their current addresses so supplements can be mailed to them. These will be mailed once school begins. Continue reading
