This Spring’s Grandparents & Special Friends Day was a great success. Over 150 relatives and dear friends of GHS students enjoyed and contributed to a vast array of delicious food, watched instrumental performances by the GHS brass band and guitar class, and witnessed a sneak preview of student-written musical numbers for the musical, The Neverending Cycle: Stories of Water from Around the World. After the meal and performances, guests joined their GHS students in classrooms to make artwork centered on family cultural backgrounds, and at the end of the day, all could buy homemade goodies from the 7th Grade bake sale, raising money for next year’s 8th Grade trip to Panama. In the 2015-2016 school year, grandparents and special friends contributed over $17,000 to GHS. We are grateful for such dedication to our students’ education from our extended families. Grandparents & Special Friends Day festivities are just a small thank you for all that those families do.
A letter from Seana Anderson, Grandparents Fund Chair
I am always so touched by the outpouring of support and love by the GPs and Special Friends. It was wonderful seeing so many more of you this year face to face. I have put my grandsons’ photos in the picture frames we made that day. I hope yours remind you of why we are so grateful to GHS for their well-rounded education based on integrity, curiosity, and love.
