Good Morning,

I’ve heard several comments from staff members this week such as, “This senior class is leading the school in such a positive manner, this year the students are in such great spirits, they’re asking high level questions, and many more positive comments. One comment from one of our new teachers was, “I can’t believe that these students will hold the door for you and even say hello when they do not know me”. These small gestures go a long way. I hope this continues as it’s been a really great start this year.

I hope you join us today as the student-athletes compete on Homecoming. Here’s the most up to date schedule. Don’t forget to bring a canned good to Tackle Hunger for our local community.


We provide a number of supports for our students. We hope that they take advantage of these.

Math Center              

Mondays w/Mr. Eckhardt 2:20-3:20pm

Wednesdays w/Mrs. Twombly  2:20-3:20pm

 

Writing Center

Tuesdays & Thursdays 6:45-7:30am2:15-3:00pm  room 321

 

Last week I shared the outstanding Advanced Placement data. This week I’d like to highlight how our current seniors performed when they took the SAT in the spring of their junior year. Our current seniors scored a combined average of 1071 compared to the state average of 1034. We showed growth from the previous year when the total was 1040. You can see the individual breakdowns as well. Well done seniors!

 

The Community College System of New Hampshire is announcing a new scholarship program for students that will allow them to take up to 2 STEM related courses each year through Project Running Start free of charge. I have attached the information. Please contact our School Counseling Department if you have questions.

Also attached is the “Girls Rock the Capitol”. This is a unique legislative internship and mentoring program for high school girls.

Anyone wishing to remove their son/daughter’s name from any list given to the military should fill out the Opt Out form attached and return it to the School Counseling Department by September 28th.

Lynn Lyons will be speaking at our auditorium on Tuesday, September 26th from 6-8pm about anxiety. I encourage you and your child to attend.

Next Wednesday, September 20th, GHS has an early release. Students will be dismissed at 12:06 from the high school. Have a great weekend.

Good Evening,

The excitement is starting to build as we gear up for Homecoming next week. Wednesday and Thursday evening will be a time for our classes to collaborate at spirit hallways in the gym from 5:30-7:30Saturday, we host many athletic events on our campus. During the Homecoming games, the athletic teams will be collecting food donations for the local food pantry for New Hampshire Tackles Hunger.

Speaking of donations, thank you to all of the students, parents, and community members that contributed to the Hurricane Harvey relief effort that the Interact and NHS organizations led.

Another area that our students impressed us is with their Advanced Placement results we received this summer. 87% of all GHS AP students received a 3 or better on their exam compared to 71% at the state level and 60% globally. This year we have 51 students challenging themselves with the most rigorous curriculum that we offer. 



Lynn Lyons will be speaking at our auditorium on Tuesday, September 26th from 6-8pm about anxiety. I encourage you and your child to attend. Have a great weekend.

Good Evening-

 

We sent our seniors off in style last Saturday at Graduation in a beautiful event. Today, the rest of the students have all started their summer break. I hope they all have a restful, safe, and fun summer.

 

In the coming weeks, I will send out a link for our current 9th grade students (10th grade next year) because they will have summer reading. Our incoming freshmen also have summer reading. This has already been shared with students; however, I hear that sometimes not all information makes it home. J In two more years, everyone will have summer reading. Also coming soon will be the fall athletic start up schedule coming from our Director of Athletics, Rick Acquilano. Stay tuned…

 

Kristen Nevious, from Franklin Pierce University, runs a FREE week at FPU each summer called “The Presidency & The Press”. This is a free week at FPU for NH high school students, grade 9 through 12, with an interest in politics or journalism. The class runs the week of July 15 and holds about 40 students. They currently have about 15 openings remaining and are hopeful to have students come from each county in the state. Please contact our Guidance Department if interested.

 

I’ve said it before; Gilford is a special place because of our community. Thank you for your support of our schools and I wish you a great summer. For all the fathers out there, I hope you enjoy your weekend.
