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

*Every class must have at least 15 students present.  Currently, all classes have at least 15 students signed up, but some are close.  Thus, it is important all students are present this Tuesday, June 1st, at the appropriate time.  The first classes start at 8 am.  If we do not have 15 students present, we cannot offer the class and students will be sent home.

If you still need to complete the registration process, please open the following link https://bit.ly/3fKKgxG and register your student. We appreciate your attention to this matter. We are excited to resume all activities and return to a normal (as possible) school year. Thank you.  Continue reading

Graduation-Change in Location

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
Senior students and families.

Greenwood High School will now hold Friday's 7:00pm graduation ceremony in the main gym, not the football stadium as previously shared. Thankfully, the restrictions remain the same as we move the ceremony indoors. Those conditions include:
  1. All graduating seniors will receive four (4) tickets for family members and friends (no change). Tickets will be distributed to seniors at graduation practice. 
  2. Presenters (personally selected by seniors) will beable to present diplomas to seniors. (no change).
  3. All seniors, visitors, and staff will be required to wear masks (no change). 
  4. We ask families to sit and remain together but socially distance from other families (no change). 
We want to thank the Johnson County Health Department for their support in granting permission for this event. The forecast for Friday has continuously called for rain and/or storms throughout the day, so we feel an indoor event will allow the school and families to begin the planning process without weather concerns. Please note the school, in collaboration with the Johnson County Health Department, could not approve a plan until we were near the time of the event.   

As a reminder, graduation will take place this Friday beginning promptly at 7pm. Doors will open to 6:00pm, and the event is being live-streamed by our WBN students. Seniors must arrive by 6:15pm and report to their assigned area. 

Lastly, graduating seniors must be present for graduation practice beginning Friday morning at 9am. This is mandatory for all seniors wishing to participate in the commencement ceremony. Students will report directly to the main gym. Thank you for your understanding and willingness to follow our guidelines.  Continue reading

Final Exams

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
Good afternoon.  Final Exams begin next week for all GHS students.  Final Exams represent an important opportunity for students to show their learning and either help improve or maintain their grades in each course.  A few important notes:


*School begins at the regular time of 7:30 am each day.

*There will be no afternoon PowerHour but there will be PowerHour on Thursday morning only.

*Buses will run at their regular times all week, and all students will remain in school until 2:30 each day (except on PLC Wednesday when they will leave at the PLCr time of 2:00). 

*On Monday, seniors will take their period 3 Final Exam early, while all other students will be in their period 3 classes preparing for their final exam.  Seniors will be expected to leave the school building on the last day of school (Thursday) after their last final.

*Only those students who were distance learning as of the end of April can take their finals online.  

*All in-person students must take final exams in person at GHS.  If a student misses a final exam, for any reason, and cannot make it up before the school year ends, that student is required to come into school the next week (Tuesday, June 1st through Friday, June 4th) between 8 am and 12 noon to take the final(s) missed.

*School issued devices and charges must be turned in at the end of school as well to avoid being charged.  A school messenger will come out later this week with procedures.

*The full schedule is linked here.


Please encourage your child to work hard in preparation, try their very best, and finish the year as well as they can.  

Thank you-
