  • Tuesday, May 18

    May is Mental Health Awareness Month.  Today, make a list of traits you love about yourself!
    As all good things must come to an end, so must the Ultimate Frisbee Club.  Today and tomorrow are the last after-school meetings of our spring campaign.  Don't miss your last chance to come out and huck some discs.  As always, see Mr. Negro or Mr. Dolly for details. 
    Have you borrowed a graphing calculator from the high school library? Please remember that calculators are due at the end of this week! However, if you need the graphing calculator for Keystones, keep the calculator until after testing is complete.
    Summer Bags are still available from the library.  Browse the book topics in Canvas and complete the request form to get a bag full of books for the summer.  
    If you're looking for summer employment, stop by the Counseling Center to see money-making opportunities in our community.

  • Gettysburg Area High School - Sign up for Meals

    This is a follow-up message to Dr. Perrin’s communication informing you of the necessity to close the Gettysburg Area High School (school building). On Monday, I sent an update that spoke to the ongoing daily challenges of maintaining an environment within Gettysburg Area High School that allows our students to engage with staff members in a safe and healthy way. Unfortunately, this recent influx of positive Covid-19 cases has pushed our school building into a position that requires us to close our doors in a physical sense.

    Education MUST continue, and it will. Opportunities to learn will remain the norm. We have planned to keep these opportunities flowing in a way that maintains as much consistency as possible. The plan for students is as follows (also attached - PDF)...

    Students - Please communicate questions or concerns with your teachers via Canvas Inbox or Gmail (if using Gmail, check for responses daily).

    As I said on Monday, “Remote learning requires discipline and drive but also a willingness to ask for help. As students practice self-regulation and time management, they must also practice self-advocacy and communication when help is needed.” Our school community is tasked with preparing students for an incredibly challenging future. To do that, we MUST respond collaboratively to the challenges of the moment. Each day, we must work together to get a little bit better. We will. Go Warriors!
