Final Exams

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
Good afternoon.  Final Exams begin next week for all GHS students.  Final Exams represent an important opportunity for students to show their learning and either help improve or maintain their grades in each course.  A few important notes:

*School begins at the regular time of 7:30 am each day.

*There will be no afternoon PowerHour but there will be PowerHour on Thursday morning only.

*Buses will run at their regular times all week, and all students will remain in school until 2:30 each day (except on PLC Wednesday when they will leave at the PLCr time of 2:00). 

*On Monday, seniors will take their period 3 Final Exam early, while all other students will be in their period 3 classes preparing for their final exam.  Seniors will be expected to leave the school building on the last day of school (Thursday) after their last final.

*Only those students who were distance learning as of the end of April can take their finals online.  

*All in-person students must take final exams in person at GHS.  If a student misses a final exam, for any reason, and cannot make it up before the school year ends, that student is required to come into school the next week (Tuesday, June 1st through Friday, June 4th) between 8 am and 12 noon to take the final(s) missed.

*School issued devices and charges must be turned in at the end of school as well to avoid being charged.  A school messenger will come out later this week with procedures.

*The full schedule is linked here.

Please encourage your child to work hard in preparation, try their very best, and finish the year as well as they can.  

Thank you-

Important Information

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
GHS families:

Good morning. Yesterday was a busy day for GHS as we communicated lots of new information to students and parents. Here is a quick review, and some clarifications, on what was presented yesterday.

  1. Online option for 2021-22. If you would like more information on the GHS online option for the 2021-22 school year, please review the information shared on our website at http://www.gws.k12.in.us/greenwood-high-school. Information is listed on the right hand side of the website. 
  1. PowerHour. GHS will return to a PowerHour bell schedule beginning tomorrow, Thursday, April 8th. Students are aware of the expectations of maintaining this schedule.
  1. Prom. The following announcement was made this morning regarding prom.
Prom is being held Friday, April 23 from 7:30 - 11:00 p.m. at The Sycamore at Mallow Run. Prom is open to all GHS seniors and juniors. Sophomores as dates only might be eligible if spots allow. Tickets will ONLY be sold to SENIORS tomorrow and Friday during lunch. Seniors may put a junior or sophomore guest name on a waitlist; however, seniors may only purchase 1 ticket for themselves this week. If spots remain, these juniors and sophomores will go on a waitlist with junior dates selected before sophomore dates. 

If spots are available, tickets will then be sold to juniors on Monday and Tuesday during lunch. Tickets prices are $30 per person and are non-refundable. Cash and checks payable to GHS Prom will be accepted. Credit cards cannot be accepted. Tickets may not be sold or transferred to anyone else. If tickets are still available after all seniors and juniors have had the opportunity to purchase them for themselves and sophomore dates, outside guests ages 16-20 will be permitted to attend starting with seniors first. No freshmen will be allowed to attend this year.

Appetizers and desserts will be served. Masks must be worn at all times and are mandatory. Students who wish to dance will do so in small friend groups with no “mosh style” dancing or large group dancing allowed. GHS reserves the right to monitor and maintain the number of students dancing at one time. Anyone with questions can contact the Prom coordinator at the email provided on the announcement page (Mrs. Erin Swisher: emswisher@comcast.net)
  1. Graduation. Graduation will take place Friday, May 28th at 7pm on the football field (weather permitting). All graduates will receive 4 tickets for family and friends. Our make-up date is the following day (Saturday) at 10:00am on the football field. If weather is still poor, we will move graduation to the main gym at 10:00am (Saturday). If so, the number of tickets available per graduate will be determined closer to the event, per JCHD.
