As the 2018-2019 school year comes to a close, we immediately start thinking about how we can better serve our students next fall. We are excited about two changes that we believe will better help us achieve our mission.
First of all, we will better partner with our student body as we reimagine our student leadership structure. Currently, each grade of student congress works independently and primarily works to plan and manage events.
Next year, our Congress will move to a branch system that aligns our student leaders with their passions and gifts as they partner with administration, faculty, and staff. The five branches with representatives from each grade are:
Hospitality & Inclusion
Events & Activities
We are so proud that roughly 130 current 9th — 11th graders pursued this opportunity! We look forward to getting each one of these students involved in some way whether they were elected or not. Click here to see the 19/20 elected student congress!
We are also excited about some slight changes to our daily schedule that will better serve our students. To better infuse our faith into our daily schedule, we will have two shorter chapels each week. The first chapel will likely be a traditional chapel with a short talk and some worship. The second chapel will be called "community time" and will rotate between small group time, praise and worship, and any necessary assemblies. We also will have two shorter late starts to give teachers more frequent opportunities to analyze student data in their teams. Check out the new schedule here!
On a personal note, I want to say "thank you" for your prayers and support during my first year as principal. It's a privilege to walk alongside our students and families as we celebrate good times and struggle through the tough times. I'm so grateful for this school and our community of faith! I pray that summer is a restful, rejuvenating time for each GRCHS family.
