Spring Athletes - Yearbook Coverage

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
The yearbook and newspaper staffs are creating a special quarantine magazine designed to peel and stick inside the back of the 2019-2020 yearbooks since this has been such a significant part of the school year. A salute to our athletes who lost their spring season is going to be part of that coverage. If you have a photo of your GHS student in uniform or obviously practicing for his/her spring sport this year, please email that photo to droberts@gws.k12.in.us and include the student's name and cell phone number so a student reporter can reach out to him/her for caption information.

2019-2020 Yearbook Pick-Up

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
Yearbook Information. With so much happening in Indiana right now, the situation with yearbook pick-up has to be at the bottom of the list if it's even on the list, but I have received a few emails.

I want to assure all purchasers that we finalized our 2019-2020 yearbook before school shut down. And from what I'm reading in my journalism teacher forums, not many other yearbook staffs were in the same boat. This just shows you how awesome the yearbook staff has been this year.

We should receive our yearbook from the publisher within the next 2 months. As soon as the quarantine has been lifted, we will be able to plan yearbook distribution. Meanwhile, the yearbook and newspaper staffs are creating a special quarantine magazine designed to peel and stick inside the back of the yearbooks since this has been such a significant part of the school year.

Up-to-date information about GHS is available on this website and the Timberlines Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/GCHSTimberlines/?ref=bookmarks Continue reading

GHS School Pictures & Retake Info

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
School pictures have been sorted and delivered to all English teachers. Your child should receive his/her picture package or a proof sheet tomorrow during English class. Here are a few points you need to know:

  1. Everyone who posed on School Picture Day will receive a picture package that a parent / guardian ordered or a proof sheet with information about ordering in English class tomorrow. Any student who does not have an English class will receive the package delivered to one of his/her classes tomorrow.

  2. Any student who was not here on School Picture day in August will pose during Retake Day on Oct. 11, regardless of whether parents want to order picture packages. These photos are used for administrative purposes. If parents want to order photos, though, they can use this form:  img-805071529-0001-Copy.pdf_page_1.jpg  (Disregard the date. Retakes are the same price so you can use the original Picture Day form.)

  3. Students who do not like their picture packages can pose for Retakes on Oct. 11 during English class. They must return their entire picture package to pose for Retakes. They do not need to complete new forms for their replacement photo packages.

  4. Students who do not like their proofs do NOT have the option to pose for retakes unless they want to order picture packages. They can use the attached order form or pick up an order form in the main office. Use this form:  img-805071529-0001-Copy.pdf_page_1.jpg (Disregard the date. Retakes are the same price so you can use the original Picture Day form.)

  5. Seniors can order these photos for personal use, but the special photos taken during the summer and in August will be the ones used in the yearbook. use this form:  img-805071529-0001-Copy.pdf_page_1.jpg (Disregard the date. Retakes are the same price so you can use the original Picture Day form.)

Class of 2020 - Senior Picture Information

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
Dear Parents of Current GHS Juniors,

The 2018-2019 school year is drawing to a close, and I'm sure you cannot believe your child will soon be a senior. One item that needs to be on your To Do list right now is your child'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 summerYou cannot provide a photo taken by somebody else for the yearbook because of specific digital imaging required for yearbook printing.

To make senior pictures easy for you and your family, Prestige will set up a full studio at GHS in the library this summer with lots of background choices and props on June 12 and June 13. You will receive proofs from Prestige so you can choose your yearbook photo and purchase photos if you'd like for family and friends. There is no obligation to buy photos, though.

Prestige Portraits will send you a postcard within the next few weeks that gives you a specific date and time for the senior picture. All appointments will take place on June 12 and June 13 from 8 a.m. - 3 p.m. 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 before school starts.

I'm providing you with this information in April so you can keep these dates  -- June 12 and June 13 -- free on your calendars.

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

Schedule Change

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
PowerHour remains a time where students can take more ownership of their education, work to improve themselves academically, and get more involved and connected with their school community.  We continue to look at ways to make this privilege more effective for all of our students.  Thus, we are making slight changes to the daily schedule to help students improve academically, get to the necessary PowerHours, increase the motivation to work and the ability to get help from staff, and thus increase the number of students meeting classroom expectations making them on track for graduation!  Class meetings have been held regarding these changes and announcements will continue once school resumes to remind students of schedule changes.  Please see the schedule changes for more information.
