Activities & Clubs
Big News! GRCHS and Special Olympics Unified Sports
GRCHS and the Eagle Activation Committee are excited to launch a commitment to being a Special Olympics Unified Champion School. As a school, we are committed to welcoming, respecting and including all students. Using education, sports, and the power of community engagement, we will engage our student body to break down barriers that separate students with and without intellectual disabilities in order to promote acceptance and inclusion. Through Unified, we will create athletic and leadership opportunities for students with, and without intellectual disabilities. On May 11th and 12th, we will host a schoolwide banner signing in the town square. We are excited about the opportunities that being a Unified Champion School will provide for all our students. Stay tuned for more events and activities in the 2021/22 school year. Click here to watch a video with more information!

Are you interested in Spanish culture? Perhaps you are studying Spanish and enjoy hospitality. If so, then this could be a great opportunity for you and your family! Students will arrive in Grand Rapids on August 6 and depart in early October.
