Have a Great Summer and See you in September!

Posted on Updated on


All of us here at GHE would like to thank everyone in our learning community for a great 2016-2017 school year.

First of all, we would like to thank all the students. You worked really hard this year and should be proud of yourselves. Now go and enjoy your summer. Play hard, run fast, bike your hearts out, and don’t forget to sleep in!

Secondly, a special thank you to all the parents, guardians, and family members for your support this year. Thank you for raising and supporting such amazing children so we can teach them…and so they can teach us!

Finally, we would like to thank the teachers and staff for a great year. It is crystal clear how hard you work and how much you care about all of these students. It’s what makes GHE such a special place to be a part of.

In looking ahead to the first week of school in September 2017, our school-wide theme will be “Building Community for Safe & Purposeful Learning at GHE”. We are looking forward to engaging all of our students and families in building our new GHE Code of Conduct.
