Good Evening,

The weather certainly has been cooperating on the weekends for some outdoor fun.

The past two weeks have been really good! Our students have been following all of the protocols such as mask wearing, using one way hallways, and assigned seating. I want to make sure you know how great they've been.

So far, we've only had to make a few adjustments to the protocols with one of them being easing congestion in one wing which was quickly remedied.

Thanks to the parents that are picking their children up at 2:14 and demonstrating patience. We've staggered our release times and this has helped immensely.

Thursday is picture day. Their company policy, this year, is limiting their staff exposure so there will be no retakes. Please see below regarding picture times.

The seniors put on a fantastic show this weekend. Hats off to the cast and crew of Godspell!

Have a good week.

or on the Performing Arts page under the Co-Curricular tab on the GHS website.. 
Tickets will not be sold in the lobby before the show.

On October 23rd & 24th a cast of underclassmen will present their version of Godspell Jr. and on November 20 & 21 yet another cast of underclassmen will present a third interpretation of Godspell Jr.

Godspell Jr is a delightful retelling of several parables from the Bible. These are stories that are fairly universally familiar and not particularly religious. The music is beautiful with a pop-rock feel. "Day by Day", from the original cast album, reached #13 on the Billboard pop singles chart in 1972. This is a show for everyone and all ages. It’s about an hour long.
