Welcome to Girls High!

Girls' High News

Greetings Girls’ High Community,

This is a shortened week, but there is a lot going on. Student leaders (Classes & Clubs), please see the 2 meetings happening this week including tomorrow morning during Advisory. We also have our first student Pop-Up Shop of the year happening on Friday! Come out at dismissal and support your sisters’ businesses.

SAT Pre-Administration– on Thursday we will have an Extended Advisory to complete SAT/PSAT Pre-Administration in Advisory. You can not participate in the free SAT/PSAT school day test without doing the Pre-administration.

Student Meetings this week– in order to help each other process the violence in our city, various clubs will be sponsoring a Student Town Hall on Safety in Our City. The hope is that we can come up with safe ways for us to advocate around this cause which affects each and everyone of us.

  • Club Officers will meet Monday in the Auditorium during Advisory
  • School-Wide Meeting after school on Tuesday open to all.

CIEE International Traveladvisors from CIEE will be on hand Monday, October 3 at 7 pm to answer questions via Zoom that you may have regarding study abroad this summer. Use this link for more info and to join:

The Wiz– we are very excited to be able to bring the musical, “The Wiz”, to life! Check the Team Google Classroom for Audition information including pieces to prepare for the upcoming auditions on November 4th.

Dance Club starts this week! Listen to announcements for time and location.

From Last Week’s Updates
Detentions for Yondr pouch violations will start this week. Discipline is progressive and students will lose school privileges if subsequent violations continue.

  • Numerous students have not paid for replacement pouches. If a YONDR pouch is forgotten or compromised, including loose, any green from the pin showing, ink, pencil marks, etc. a replacement bag will need to be purchased. The cost is $20. Parents/Guardians will be notified and will need to come retrieve the phone/electronics. Our community is committed to a distraction free learning environment.

Truancy letters for illegal absences & latenesses will be sent out this week. Along with referrals to truancy court if you have three or more unexcused absences.

Listen to daily announcements for ID pictures. They are not being taken at this time. Students who have lost their ID’s will have to pay a $5 replacement fee.

Give Kids Sight Day does your student need glasses? Check out this free event:

TEAM Google Classroom– make sure to check the TEAM Google Classroom at minimum, each week. There is a lot of information on there including College/University programs, internships, scholarships, etc. as well as other programs in school and around the city.

Girls’ High Open Stage Event– be on the lookout for sign-ups for our first Open Stage event happening this fall! This is for students that wish to share their “art” with us!

COVID Consent form– all parents must complete the COVID Consent form found here for their student(s) for the 22-23 school year.

Chromebooks– you must bring their District-issued Chromebook to school with you everyday. It is important that Chromebooks be in the building, so that they can be used in the classroom.

Let’s have a great week,
Mrs. Mesi
