Dear GHS Families,

It is hard to believe that our students are entering their final marking period of the year. It brings us joy to see signs of Spring! The weather is getting warmer, flowers are beginning to bloom and our daylight time is longer.

Paint the Town Red was once again a huge success. Thank you to our chairs Diana Orbanowski and Pina Santanna and our VP of Ways and Means, Chamisa Wilkinson, for our sold out PTTR event at the Tamarack Country Club. A special shout out to Valerie Rimmer, VP Programs & Services. We met our fundraising goal thanks to the generosity of our wonderful GHS families. These funds will allow the  PTA to support our students and faculty.

If you missed our General Membership meeting on March 23, our panel addressed the important topic “How to help your child discover and nurture academic and extracurricular interests in preparation for college”. Our panelists, Jennifer Burstiner (GHS alum, GHS parent, and Independent Educational Consultant), Caroline Tucker (Dunbar Consulting), and Brad Harris (ESM Prep) provided many insights. We wanted to share a recap and resource DOCUMENT of the important information that was discussed. 

So much to celebrate! Our Teacher Appreciation campaign has begun. We do hope you will support this very special recognition of our entire staff. Keep an eye out for additional TAW emails. Additionally, parents of Seniors, if you haven’t yet ordered your lawn signs through MySchoolBucks, there will be another opportunity to do so at the end of April and you can donate to the Senior Celebration at any time through MySchoolBucks. 

Our upperclassmen are excited for their Junior Prom on April 29th, Senior Prom June 3rd and Graduation is set for June 15th in Cardinal Stadium.

Our GHS PTA Nominating Committee is currently filling positions for our 2023-2024 Committee Chairs. Inquiries and nominations can be directed to the Nominating Committee at  

Thank you all for your continued support.

Leila Horn and Peter Bernstein
