Principal's Welcome

Welcome to the 2018-2019

School Year

Go Greyhounds!

Dear Greyhound Families,

Over the next several weeks, there are many opportunities to take time with family and give thanks for many things in our lives. It’s a great time to reflect, renew, and look ahead to the conclusion of the year and what is coming in 2019. While the end of the calendar year is close, there is a lot coming up at Grove City High School as we head through November and De- cember.

Please make sure you have completed the Annual Information Update in Infinite Campus. When you’re logged into the por- tal.swcsd.us website, click “Annual Information Update” at the bottom left. The system will take you through updating contact information for your household to ensure we have up-to-date means to contact you. It is a brief process but provides critical information. (see page 6 for step by step instructions)

December 4-7 will have Late Start days (10:30am start for non- testing students, see page 2) to accommodate End-of-Course testing for students who have previously taken a test but were not successful in passing it. For seniors, this is the last opportu- nity to get the scores back for graduation, so it is critical to be here, ready to go each day of testing and to demonstrate the knowledge and understanding of the course. For juniors and sophomores, it’s an opportunity to make up assessments before spring. Remember that one of the graduation pathways is to earn 18 points on the seven tests, including 4 in Math, 4 in Eng- lish, and 6 in Social Studies/Science.

While the days are growing shorter and colder, there is always a lot going on at GCHS - take time to see one of the upcoming concerts, a basketball game, gymnastics meet, wrestling match, or swim meet in the next few weeks. The students at GCHS al- ways appreciate having an audience when they are showcasing their talents. Have a wonderful holiday season.

With Greyhound Pride,

Bryan O’Shea
