Jason Garner, one of our English teachers at GVHS, had the opportunity to go with six of his students to meet Scott Anderson, the author of Lawrence in Arabia. We were afforded exclusive time with him to talk about the writing process and the subject of his book. It was truly a unique experience that we will all treasure. Mr. Anderson writes both fiction and nonfiction, so we were able to talk about the difference in the two styles of writing and how to prepare to undertake each.

Please be advised that "special deliveries" such as flowers, balloons, cookie bouquets, special lunches, etc., cannot be accepted. These items are a disruption in the classroom and pose a safety hazard in the hallways. We cannot hold onto these items until the end of the day and be held responsible if they are damaged or lost. Additionally, these items are not allowed on the school bus.
Also, we cannot accept money deliveries for students at the front desk. The school cannot accept the liability for money delivered to students. If a school/class fee is due, payments can be made at the school bank or our Web Store located on this site. Money can be placed into student lunch accounts at www.myschoolbucks.com.
Finally, pulling students out of the classroom to pick up money, homework and other forgotten items causes a disruption to their education. Except in emergency situations and at the discretion of Administration, students will not be removed from class.
Thank you for your cooperation in these matters.
Graduation is on June 4, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. at the Thomas and Mack Center.

Valedictorian status is awarded to the student(s) earning the highest grade point average in the graduating class. The highest possible GPA in a class is 4.8. Salutatorian status is awarded to the student(s) earning the second highest grade point average in the class. Candidates for the valedictorian/salutatorian designations will be identified at the end of the fall semester of their senior year. This ranking will be based on any and all completed high school credit granting courses, including those courses which receive the weighted grade point average (GPA). This includes 14 classes, 4 (2 credits - 4 Semesters) of which are designated as Advanced Placement (AP) and/or International Baccalaureate (IB). Final valedictorian(s) and salutatorian(s) candidacy will be determined upon the completion of all high school credit course work through the eighth semester.
If you feel that you should be considered as Valedictorian or Salutatorian, please discuss this with your Counselor.
