Message from Dr. Selfridge

I was so proud of our students' performance at the football game and Ridley Competition this weekend! We achieved our highest-ever score for a first competition of the season!! As we continue through the season, we are going to continue to work to make our show the best it can be. But remember, no judge's score can determine the pride we have in the knowledge that we are working hard and constantly improving for ourselves. Listening to the comments of the judges can be very helpful in improving our performance, so I encourage students to listen to some of the judge's comments here, and watch our performance here. (Be sure to subscribe to the GVHS YouTube channel)

Deadline for our two Eagles fundraisers is today! See details here. Football Game and FREE DINNER this Friday, Oct 1.
