WHAT’S THE STORY?

Principal Tracy Wilson has several upcoming learning walks for parents to observe what high school is like for their students on Wednesday Nov. 19 from 1p.m. to the end of the day, Dec. six at 9a.m. and Dec. 16 at 10a.m. The experience usually lasts an hour and a half depending on the size of the group. Parents of 7th and 8th graders are also welcome to join to see what their child will be transitioning to. 

HOW DO YOU GET INVOLVED?

Wilson sends out an e-blast every week with all the required information and sign up google form. Parents can sign up at anytime prior to the event. Attendees meet in the main office for a presentation to learn about student life and school improvement at GHHS, before the walk. 

WHY ARE THEY IMPORTANT?

Often parents are not as involved in the lives of their high school students as they were in elementary school. The learning walks show them where their children spend most of their time, the demographic of the school and they get questions answered. 

“There’s a lot of rumors and misconceptions about what high school is like today,” Wilson said. “I wanted parents to have the opportunity to come in and see what we do.”
