Hello Greyhound Families!
We are excited to welcome the Class of 2026 to GCHS and to welcome back all of our students to start the 2022-23 school year. I hope each of you has had a restful, enjoyable summer and are ready to start the year positively. I’d like to welcome & introduce our new certificated staff members for this coming school year:
Scott Todd, Assistant Principal/AD
Anita Foraker, Math
Ashley Gustin, Science
Luke Oman, Intervention Specialist
Danetta Snyder, Family Consumer Science
Zoe Terry, Intervention Specialist
Thomas Wintering, Math
For every student, and especially freshman students, the start of the school year can be a time of uncertainty as they learn a new schedule, or a new school, or a new town for students who have moved to GCHS. We have set up a number of start-of-school events to help make the transition a smooth one and encourage students and families to participate in these events:
Freshman Orientation: 12:30p-4p, August 16
Freshman Schedule Pickup: 4p-6p, August 16
Upperclassman Schedule Pickup: 3p-6p, August 17
Open House: 5p-7p, August 22
All students are encouraged to find a club, activity, or sport to join; students who are involved are more likely to be successful in school. We have a list of clubs and activities at GCHS available on our website, gchs.swcsd.us that students can explore and will have opportunities throughout the fall to learn more about our many clubs and activities.
The start of the year is always an exciting time - one of renewal, fresh starts, and new opportunities. I encourage students to consider each day what their goals are, what is their “E” - enroll, employ, enlist - and how can the things they do at GCHS help them achieve those goals. All staff members can help with these goals or explore what opportunities are available; throughout the year, students are welcome to work with any of their teachers, their counselor, the administrators, or other staff here in the building to ensure their success.
High school is a team effort and we thank you for your continued partnership and support. If there is anything we can assist with to start the year, please reach out to our office.
