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.

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

Class of 2022 - Senior Pictures (June 21-23)

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
Senior Pictures Update

Note:  All GHS seniors need to pose with Prestige to appear in their final GHS yearbook. You cannot provide photos taken by other people because of the way photos are flowed onto pages digitally for printing. Remember, no purchase is required.

Class of 2022 parents: By now, you should have received a postcard from Prestige with information about scheduling senior pictures. The info includes the website to use, the code for your specific senior, and the discount code for a free sitting. If you have not received your postcard, please email me at droberts@gws.k12.in.us so I can provide you with the info you need to schedule immediately; make sure you include the name of your senior in that email. Senior Pictures will take place at GHS next Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (June 21-23) by appointment only, so you need to schedule immediately.

When you schedule your Senior Portrait sitting online for next Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday (June 21-23), you must put in the sitting fee discount code provided on the postcard to get the $10 off your sitting. If you select the lowest level sitting valued at $10, you'll have no sitting fee at all (after applying that discount code). If you choose one of the other sittings with more outfits and poses, you'll get $10 off that sitting using the same discount code. This code is unique to GHS because I negotiated so no senior is required to pay anything to be in the yearbook. 

Students will enter the school through Door 3N (the door in the center front of the school near the Media Center sign). The main entry doors by the office will be open until approximately Noon, but 3N will be open for the entire Senior Portrait appointment time frame. The studio will be set up in the IMC, which is the school library. 

 


What if my senior cannot pose on June 21-23?

Any GHS senior who cannot pose on June 21 -23 at school is welcome to travel to the Prestige Portraits studio in Carmel this summer to pose. To book that appointment at the Carmel studio, go to https://booknow.appointment-plus.com/yclxq4j4/  You should do this immediately. 

You need to pose before school begins, so booking online immediately is important. Several large schools, such as Carmel and Fishers, use this studio, and appointments can become scarce, especially when all the students and parents who procrastinate scramble to book. Book this today so you don't run into a problem. 

 


One final thought

You are going to get hit with different deadlines: posing deadlines, yearbook photo selection deadlines, etc. Some might seem pretty far into the future, and you might think you have lots of time to handle all of this. I've been handling our seniors and the yearbook for nearly 30 years, so please trust me when I tell you that booking appointments now -- whether for a photo session at school next week or up in Carmel -- is absolutely key. If you procrastinate, you could run into a problem even getting your senior in to pose because appointments will fill. I don't want our seniors or their parents to experience that type of stress.  

 


Let's make this a wonderful year for our seniors and start off on the right foot with senior pictures. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at droberts@gws.k12.in.us Continue reading

Senior Class Composite Portrait

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
To ensure social distancing, we are continuing the change we made last year and most seniors are going to love. Instead of a formal cap & gown photo that would require everyone to gather rather closely, our senior portrait company is going to create a 16 x 20 composite of everyone’s senior pictures. As long as seniors posed for senior pictures through Prestige -- whether at the studio or during one of the make-up dates at the high school -- they’ll be included in this awesome composite picture that will also feature information about your class. Orders are due May 1.

Forms will be distributed during the Senior Meeting and are available in the high school office, too.

Final Yearbook Sales (2020-2021)

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
This year’s yearbook has gone to press so students will get it during the last week of school. Don’t worry, though, the yearbook staff is creating the spring supplement that will cover all spring sports, the musical, prom, graduation, and other year-end activities. The supplement is designed to adhere to the inside back cover of the yearbook itself.

If you still have not ordered your yearbook, you definitely need to do that this week. The extras the yearbook ordered for late purchasers are almost sold out. This will be one you will especially want because it will be of historical significance with the pandemic.

Pick up an order form in the front office or print the one attached to this post if you’d like to pay with cash or check. You also can go to www.jostensyearbooks.com if you want to order using a credit card.

If you need to know if you've already purchased a yearbook, feel free to contact Denise Roberts at droberts@gws.k12.in.us Continue reading

Class of 2020 Portrait - Changes

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
Class of 2020 Panoramic Photo

To ensure social distancing, we are making a change to the Class of 2020 panoramic photo that most seniors are going to love. Instead of a regular photo that would require everyone to gather rather closely, our senior portrait company is going to create a panoramic-sized composite of everyone's senior pictures. As long as you pose for senior pictures through Prestige -- whether last summer or during one of the make-up dates at the high school -- you'll be included in this awesome composite picture that will also feature information about your class. Please place your order by July 10 because no late orders can be accepted. Continue reading

2019-2020 Yearbook Distribution - July 10

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
Distribution of the 2019-2020 yearbooks along with the quarantine supplements will be distributed at the school on July 10 between 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. Students and parents will remain in their cars and form a line in front of the building to enforce social distancing. Signs will direct the way. Also, students need to have some form of ID. School IDs and driver's licenses would be perfect, but other identification cards -- like library cards -- would work. This will speed up the car line. Anyone who cannot pick up the yearbook on July 10 will need to wait until the first week of school to get the books and magazines. A few extras are still available, and interested parents should contact Denise Roberts at droberts@gws.k12.in.us

Each yearbook purchaser will receive a complementary Quarantine supplement, which is a 36-page magazine that will peel and stick in the back of the yearbook and provide stories, photos, and information about the pandemic's effect on students, faculty, and the community.

Congratulations to Faith Peebles, Mallory Watson, and Anna Lowe for leading the newspaper and yearbook staffs in creating this amazing supplement during remote learning and to Mallory Watson for her leadership all year in creation of the yearbook itself.

Winter Percussion, Guard, Academic Team, Etc.

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.

If you have a photo of your GHS student involved in these activities 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
