The annual GWHS Open House will be held on Thursday, September 11th from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm.

At this event, parents will have the opportunity to briefly meet the teachers of their students and find out more about their classes.

Open House will begin promptly at 6:00 with 1st period. Each parent should bring a copy of his/her student's schedule (period, course, room number) so it will be known where to go each of the 9 periods. There will be a staff member available if a printed schedule is needed.

There will be members of the yearbook staff present to provide information packets about the 2014 - 2015 yearbooks. Josten's is the new vendor for the yearbook, and all ordering will be completed online. Information such as early-bird pricing will be part of the packets.

Parents may also wish to purchase GW apparel from various parent organizations.

Prior to Open House, members of the Local School Improvement Council (LSIC) will be meeting in the library beginning at 4:00.
