Greenfield-Central School Foundation Red Letter Gala
Cross Country/Track Club information
Area 51 Party
- Thanks to everyone who participated in our school-wide fundraiser. Students can still turn in their money envelopes to the office. Students stopped at stations around the track. The first stop was to sign a “Choose Kind” banner, that is now hanging in the cafeteria. They also wrote a positive note to a teacher and then to a classmate. The students did a terrific job! We will continue with the theme of “Choose Kind” throughout the year.
- Mr. Anderson is looking for adult volunteers to help run the various booths for the Reality Store for the Preparing for College and Careers classes. If this sounds like an activity you would like to participate in please reach out to him at firstname.lastname@example.org. It would require your assistance for a full school day. They plan to conduct orientation between 7:30 and 8:00 AM. Lunch will be provided at the Junior High.
- We will be having a 7th-grade choir demonstration concert on Wednesday, Sept. 18 at 6 pm in the cafeteria. The concert should last around 30 minutes. There is no admission for this demonstration concert.
- Students will have a chance to donate to the Imagination Library this week. The goal of Imagination Library is to put books in the hands of young children, birth to 5 years old. Students will be able to donate and put their names on the wall in the cafeteria.
- This week is homecoming at the high school. Our student leaders have established spirit dress-up days for the week.
