NEWS AND NOTES
 
THE WALLS ARE ALIVE WITH COLOR
During the last two weeks, the halls have been transformed. Colors and graffiti artwork have been added to improve the visual environment at GHLS. The graffiti artwork highlights the seven character traits that are studied in the Character Formation Project curriculum and our school vision, love, learn, laugh, and lead. The colors of the walls were chosen based on the mood and emotion they represent: Yellow – energy, happiness, Blue – trust, serenity, calm, Green – peace, loyalty, resourcefulness, Orange – confident, healthy, innovative. A special thanks to Zen Castillo for the amazing graffiti artwork and Jaymee Harvey Wilms for developing the painting proposal and the colorful creativity she added to the school.

PARENT INFORMATION NIGHTS COMING SOON!
Two evenings have been scheduled at the beginning of the year for Parent Information Nights. They are Tuesday, August 30th and Wednesday, September 21st from 6:00 – 7:30 pm. Please mark these dates on your calendar! At each of these events a number of topics will be covered that coincide with creating a positive and successful school culture at GHLS. The topics can be found below. Parents will also be able to see the updated paint job and artwork in the hallways.

The evening will begin with devotion at 6:00 pm in the church. After that, parents will have the opportunity to attend up to three sessions. If parents are not able to attend all the sessions they want to on August 30th, please return on September 21st. Each session will last 20 minutes with a five-minute transition period. Light snacks and refreshments will be available.

It is my hope that these evenings will provide parents more insight on how we conduct ourselves and build a strong school culture at GHLS.
