Check out some of the tables represented at the fair!

Mr. Woodlock speaks to sophomores during their class meeting about the High School's Core Values of Integrity, Respect, Balance, and Perseverance.
A quick reminder for those of you that drop your student(s) off at the high school, the drop off is by the tennis courts (C-Wing). We are going back to our drop-off routine pre-quarantine therefore NO vehicles should go behind the building to drop off at B or A wing entrances. We have a number of vans that drop-off students at A-wing, please help us have a smooth and safe drop-off & pick-up and enter and exit by the tennis courts for drop-off. Many thanks!
Today was a great day having all of the students and staff back in the building at once doing what we do best, together! The administration held a class meeting with the freshman to welcome them to GD, share our Core Values (Balance, Integrity, Perseverance, and Respect), and review school rules. A big thank you to our Freshman Orientation Leaders! It was through their efforts that contributed to a successful day for our Freshman! Class meetings will be held for sophomores thru seniors throughout the day tomorrow (9/2). We're already looking forward to tomorrow! WELCOME BACK EVERYONE!!!
The GDRHS Staff are excited to welcome our students and families back this school year! We have a few reminders before day one of a new year tomorrow. Student's are allowed to enter the building at 7:12 a.m. Until then, we ask students stay in their vehicle or bus until that time. If you are driving to school, be sure to park in the spot assigned to you and have your parking sticker displayed on the rear windshield on the drivers side. If you are being dropped off, please turn right at the bottom of the drive, pass the tennis courts on your right, and take a U-Turn at the end so you can drop your student off at the "C" Wing doors and exit the way you entered. Be sure to get some good rest tonight so we can have a great kick off on the first day of school this year!
