Welcome to Girls High!

Girls' High News

Hello Girls’ High Community,

I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving filled with rest and relaxation. The next 3 weeks are a whirlwind with testing, learning, and traditions. Thank you for a great County Fair event! We will announce the amount raised at Songs of the Season.

Report Cards that were not picked up will be sent home with students by Wednesday.

Every student is receiving a Girls’ High T-shirt from the Neubauer Family and the school. We are stronger together!

We had a Town Hall discussion on Wednesday that included:

  • What is our PHSG legacy, where do you see yourself, and is this the right place for you?
  • We have a lot of great things happening that people do not know about- how do we share it? Alumnae coming back to mentor, hold workshops, engage, etc.
  • Students joining school clubs and community groups/organizations to STAND UP and shape our story
  • Dress Code- no hats, no hoods, shirt compliance. Failure to see an overall change will result in us reverting back to the Uniform Policy.
  • Phones/Headphones/Ear buds- if teachers want them in schoolbags, that is where they go. If they say to stow them and move bags to the front of the room, students must do it.
  • Disqualification for activities was discussed including academics, attendance, behavior, and credit recovery.

Upcoming events

  • Alumni Homecoming Weekend- we will have over 200 Alumnae visiting throughout the day on Friday 12/10. There will be tours and the Pink Marble Hall by 105/Auditorium will be the primary space utilized.
  • Nurse Smith is coordinating COVID Assemblies are for all students.  Jefferson Nursing will be supporting these events. 2 grades per day with the other grades having extended advisory.
  • Junior Day will be happening sometime this month. The day is to be determined.
  • The Winter Concert, Spirit Week, and Songs of the Season are coming!
  • We are still collecting for the Toy Drive and Teen Clothing Drive.

Have a great week,
Mrs. Mesi
