A student forgot about an after school commitment that they had. They did not have a ride, so their friend offered to drive them home. Even though it was out of their way, they put their friend first. Keep spreading this kindness- to strangers and friends alike!
It is spirit week! Students have done an awesome job participating in some pretty neat dress up days. This really brings the school together and unites everyone in their mutual hawk pride! Keep it up!
Someone gave their friend a compliment on their outfit today, and their face immediately lit up, as they had put a lot of effort into it. One small compliment can change someone's entire day, whether it be a friend or a stranger. Let's fill GHS with kind words!
A student dropped all of their papers in the hallway today, and someone immediately stopped to help them collect their things. A simple act of kindness can make someone's day a whole lot easier!
A student who normally isn't academically inclined performed quite well on a test and recieved much praise from a fellow student. It made her day and perhaps it'll encourage her to study hard for the next test too.
When a teachers hands were full and they tried to get through a door, a student held a door for them. We can all accomplish great things together!
Many students are thankful for their teachers giving up free periods and lunch hours to help them with topics they are struggling with. Thank you teachers! We wish everyone good luck on their exams, although with the help of our staff, the students won't need it!
Mrs. Carothers helped her science classes make ornaments for the holidays. It was messy, but a great opportunity to have some fun before the break. Thank you for organizing this special project!
Before the break, Mr. Manley's AP Lang classes traveled around the school singing a holiday song by The Killers. They promoted the band and encouraged students to buy the song, because all of the proceeds go to charity. Great job spreading holiday cheer for a good cause!
Everyone at Greenfield did a wonderful job donating money, food, clothes and toys to the Holiday sharing drive where NHS collaborated with ROTC to distribute the collected items to families in need in Greenfield. It was a beautiful thing to see all of Greenfield come together to help each other out. Hopefully it can continue being a positive event in Greenfield for years to come.
A student was struggling with their math assignments. They asked their teacher if they could come to her classroom for Go-Time to receive extra help. The teacher happily accepted. The fact that so many teachers are so accesible and eager to help their students really makes GHS such an amazing place to learn!
German classes are currently competing in their annual gingerbread house contest. Several students are complimenting other groups on their hard work. The team work that goes into these projects is phenomenal! Keep it up!
Recently, a student shared a story with our admins about an experience that they had at parent/teacher conferences. After discussing some bad grades with her parents and having them express their disappointment in her, the student became very upset. Her teacher offered to comfort her, and assured her that she was very bright and just had to improve her work ethic. Special thanks to our teachers who continue to inspire us and for pushing us to achieve more academically!
A student nearly dropped their student planner while walking with a tower of textbooks in their arms during passing period today. A stranger beside them quickly came to their rescue and scooped it up for them. This thoughtful gesture was done without hesitation and is just another example of the kindness spreading at GHS every day.
In the hallway, a student complimented her peer on his new haircut. His face lit up as he thanked her when they stopped to chat. Complimenting someone can really boost someone's confidence and make their day!
A girl in gym class began to panic when she realized she forgot to bring her clean gym clothes to school. Another student lent her her extra pair of shorts. This act of kindness from a complete stranger was amazing to witness!
A student walking down the hall noticed the spout of a nearby water fountain was facing outwards towards the hall. If a student or teacher tried to use it, they would have been sprayed by the water and most likely gotten some on the ground as well. Luckily, the student turned it around and avoided such problems. Simple acts can make a big difference.
A student was going to miss their seventh hour class because they were performing at the assembly on Friday. A friend offered to take good notes and pick up an extra copy of any homework that was assigned to help their friend catch up. Having a caring friend that you can always count on really makes all the difference!
The choir and band students performed beautifully at the Veterans Day Assembly last Friday. They really worked hard to demonstrate how thankful they were to each and every Veteran in attendance. GHS is lucky to have such a talented group of students!
Yesterday a boy began to leave class with his backpack fully open. Fortunately another student ran up and closed his bag before anything fell out. Such a little deed avoided so much trouble for the other student. Way to help out!
Walking through the halls Monday morning, many students were talking about how great the performances were and what a fun musical Seussical is to watch. Nice job everyone who is part of the fall musical.
Congratulations GHS students! We made it through the first quarter. Let's stay focused, help each other out, and get through this first semester!!
A student was having a really bad morning, and she was on the brink of tears when she explained to her friend that her printer was not working that morning to print out an important project for Spanish. Her friend immediately brought out a piece of Halloween candy that she had in her backpack and offered it to her. She instantly felt better and thanked her friend for such a sweet offer. It really made her day.
While studying vocabulary words in German today, a student offered to collect all of her neighbors' white boards at the end of class so they each would not have to get up individually to clean up. It was such a kind gesture and brought a smile to each of their faces. Thanks for being so helpful! It really makes a difference.
A big thank you in advance to our LINK Crew members for organizing and hosting the annual Freshmen Social happening on 11/4/2016 (2:50-3:50pm). FREE cotton candy, ice cream, ping pong, and other games are always AWESOME! It's going to be a great celebration for our freshmen! They made it through their first quarter at GHS. Congratulations all!
