What a year it has been on the Hill! With all of the snow days, water crisis days, and 2 hour delays it seems like this school year was different in so many ways. In spite of it all, it has been a great year to be a Patriot!

Special thanks to the administration, faculty, support staff, parents and students for making this a successful year.

This is also a reminder that the GWHS website is a student run site and not many updates occur during the summer months. You should, however, check back periodically. Any new information will either be posted as a front page story or in the announcement column on the right.

Thanks again to EVERYONE, and have a restful, fun, and safe summer.

See you in August!
