Greenfield-Central School Foundation Red Letter Gala
- Our school-wide fundraiser will culminate Friday when students will walk around the track and stop at various kindness related stations. Junior high can be a tough age for students. We want to encourage everyone to be kind to each other. Our tagline, “Choose Kind” comes from the book and movie “Wonder.” The quote is “When given the choice between being right and being kind, choose kind.” Students can turn in their money envelopes to their first-period teachers. 100% of the money goes to GCJHS for school programs, student incentives, and benevolence.
- Please see the attached Rise Above It flier. This is a great opportunity for families to attend various break-out sessions sponsored by Hancock Regional.
- It’s Digital Citizenship Week! We are a proud Common Sense Media Certified School and we are passionate about digital citizenship. Each day this week, students will see a short video and discussion questions. Here are some links for parents as well!
