Students from the GMHS Lead the Way Program presented their findings and recommendations regarding efforts to improve the safety, climate, and culture of GMHS. Their presentation covered four topics: 1) Discipline; 2) More Diversity of Staff; 3) Diversity, Strength, and Community Within GMHS; and 4) Stopping the Violence. You can listen to their presentation beginning at the 21:15 mark on the YouTube broadcast.
Superintendent Jamie Grube recognized the GMHS Counseling staff (Amy Moran, Lauren Taylor, Melanie Reed, Diana Montgomery, and Adam Davidoff) for their efforts to organize the first-ever Skilled Trades Expo for students. More than 500 sophomores attended the event on Nov. 15, where they met with representatives from more than 25 skilled trade organizations. Students tried their hand at cold-fusion plumbing, spreading fresh concrete to form a sidewalk, and even knocking down bowling pins using the boom digger bucket on a backhoe.
Due to extremely high inflationary costs in the construction industry, the new health center and transportation center projects are being scaled back, and the welcome center project has been discontinued. The estimates to create safe and secure entries at our schools remain within budget; work is expected to begin next year. Get the full facilities update at the 3:14:50 mark on our YouTube broadcast.
As part of the transportation update, it was noted that all routes, including community, private, and parochial schools are now fully staffed and operating.
The 2023 Board Organizational meeting will take place on Wed., Jan. 11, at 7 PM, with the Regular meeting taking place at 7:30 PM, at the DSC.
