GHS Weekly Update 8/28-9/1

Hello Grissom Nation,
 
Congratulations to Coach English and our Grissom Football Team on their season opening victory against Arab.  Thank you all for your support of our school and community.  Friday night’s football game and atmosphere was amazing to watch as our students, parents and community members cheered on our Tigers and celebrated together as ONEtiger.  Join us this Thursday night when our Tigers play Lee High School.
 
This Thursday our volleyball team will host their first competition in our gym with a tri-match against Bob Jones and Huntsville High School.  Please come out and support our girls!
 
This week is College and Career Week.  Each day our students will be engaged in discussions and/or activities that center around their next steps after high school.  The week will end with our Juniors and Seniors taking a field trip on Friday to the UAH College and Career Fair.
 
Parents, this year, HCS will be participating in the school accreditation process.  To help us write our school improvement plan, we are asking for input from our teachers, our staff, our students and our parents.  Please click here to complete a survey about the Climate & Culture of Grissom High School.

 
Tiger Time Club & Activity Schedule can be found on the student resource page on our website.  This is the schedule that our students use each Monday to choose their club and/or activity for the week.  Students are aware that if there’s an activity they’d like to start, they are to inform a teacher so we can add it to the schedule.  I appreciate all of our students who are taking advantage of their Tiger Time.  Our goal is for every student to take ownership of their Tiger Time by making good choices and using their time wisely.
 
Please join us this Monday evening for a Town Hall Meeting with Dr. Akin in the Martha deFord Hays Auditorium.
 
Thank you all for your dedication and support to Grissom High School. 
 
Sincerely,
Becky Balentine
Principal
Grissom High School
