Welcome to the 2015 - 2016 School year, GWHS students!

The first day of school will be on Monday, August 10th.

Students will be following a special 1st day of school schedule. You are to report to your assigned homeroom at 7:30 a.m. If you do not know your homeroom section, homerooms will be posted outside of the office.

During an extended homeroom session, you will be receiving the required forms and other information, watch a safety video, and receive a copy of your schedule. This schedule may be different than the one you received in the mail, so check it carefully. If you see a problem with your schedule, your homeroom teacher will go over how to schedule an appointment to see your counselor.

Counselors are no longer handling one assigned grade. Students are assigned to a counselor based on their last names. These assignments are:

A - E : Mrs. Johnson
F - L : Mrs. Anderson
M - Q : Mrs. Jackfert
R - Z : Mrs. Eller

In addition to the normal first day of school instruction, principal Mr. Aulenbacher will be holding class meetings.

Enjoy your last weekend of summer vacation, and see you on Monday morning!
