GHS "Shout Outs"

Graduating Class of 2023

Attention Senior Parents,

In May, your child is scheduled to graduate as a member of the Class of 2023. You can show them how proud you are of their accomplishments by placing a Senior Tribute in the 2022-2023 Blue and White Yearbook. Whether you embarrass them with baby pictures, showcase their talents, or write them a special message, their Senior Tribute will be a lasting reminder of their years in high school, their achievements, and your pride. Please take a moment to review our advertising rates and deadlines. If you would like to purchase a Senior Tribute, return the completed contract along with the material you would like featured on your tribute by Feb. 15. If you have questions, please contact Amy Tolbert at [email protected].
Graduate Names on Diplomas
Please submit your graduating senior's name for their diploma by Friday, February 24, 2023. This is their name as it will appear on their diploma. First, Middle and Last name.

They must have missed no more than seven (7) school days for the year or during the semester in the class in which they have an A average for the second semester. Each teacher is responsible to provide seniors with the information that would show the students they are exempt from that particular class exam.
Senior Exams are scheduled for May 18th and 19th.
