Class of 2018 Senior Personals - Yearbook

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
If you are a parent of a senior who missed the October deadline to place a senior personal in the yearbook, you are in luck. Over the weekend, the yearbook staff finalized placing business ads in the business ad / senior personal section. Because a few businesses never came through with their payments, we are opening those spaces for new senior personals. We have approximately 1/2 page to divide up between new senior personals but need to complete this section of the yearbook by this Friday. If you would like a senior personal spot, please use the attached for and return with payment, your message, and the photo to be used (if you want to include a photo). Partial orders cannot be accepted, and these will be sold on a first come, first served basis until Friday. If you send in your order but we have sold out in the meantime, we will return your order to you.  Continue reading

Meet the Teacher Night

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
Parents:  This Thursday, August 10th is Meet the Teacher Night at Greeenwood High School.  Parents will have the opportunity to follow their child’s schedule to meet his/her teacher, hear about classroom policies and practices, and ask questions if time permits.  This event will begin at 5:30 on Thursday.  In addition, parents of Seniors can learn more about Naviance, an online program designed to help in the search for scholarships, college visits and applications and transcript requests in the IMC at 5:00 and then again at 7:30 Thursday night.  Again, this presentation is geared towards the parents of seniors, while the regular event begins at 5:30.

Also, parents, we are experiencing a high volume of traffic in the parking lot between the soccer field and the high school at both drop-off and pick-up.  Please avoid this parking lot, especially the curve at the far end of the lot, between 7:00 and 7:20 and again between 2:10 and 2:35.  Rather, please move towards door 32 on the east side of the building near the football field for both drop-off and pick-up.  Thanks for your help in this process aimed at keeping our students and buses safe.

Have a great evening and we hope to see you on Thursday night! Continue reading
