Important Updates

Friday February 26, 2021

Hello GDHS families,

It is difficult to believe that March begins on Monday. We hope that the promise of Spring weather brings with it the hope of better things to come for all of us.

Practice Literacy Test

Students in grades 10 and 11 had the opportunity to write a practice literacy test in their afternoon class this week. Students would have received some preliminary feedback on their test, but this mark only represents the marks from the multiple choice portion of the test. A team of teachers will be assessing the written portions of the test and will add these marks to the overall score. Feedback will be provided to students on all components of the test over the next two weeks.

Opportunity for Parents: The Benefits of Life Coaching for Teenagers

GDHS parents are invited to participate in a virtual parent information session, The Benefits of Life Coaching for Teenagers, on March 9th 2021 at 7:30 p.m. Jenna Rachiele, Certified Life Coach, Goal Strategist and Motivational Speaker, will provide tips and strategies for parents on how to work with their teens to build stronger relationships, improve their self confidence and set goals for the future. The link to access the presentation will be shared next week.

Schedule for the Week of March 1st

Next week students have period 2 in the morning and period 1 in the afternoon. Cohort A will be in the building on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday mornings, and Cohort B will be in the building on Thursday and Friday mornings. Period 1 will be done from home virtually each afternoon next week. Please see our Key Dates page for detailed Quadmester calendars.
