Do you need volunteer hours?  The Bala Cranberry Festival is fast approaching and they are looking for volunteers to fill a variety of positions.  Please see Ms. Humphries or Ms. Kent for more details or check out the posting on the volunteer board outside the guidance office.

Are you a grade 12 student?  Did you miss this week’s grad meeting?  Please see Ms. Humphries in guidance to go over the important information that you missed.

Listen up grade 12s!  Are you planning to apply to university?  The Ontario Universities Regional Fair is next week at GHS.  All 21 universities will be visiting GHS next Thursday afternoon from 12:30 until 2:00 pm in the gym.  This is a great opportunity to ask questions and find out more about the programs and possibilities each school has to offer!  If you are interested in attending, please sign the sheet on the main office counter to secure your spot.

 If you are planning to attend the Girlz Choice program next Tuesday but have not handed in your form, please see Ms. Humphries today in guidance or return your form to the office as soon as possible.

 From the Sports Desk:

The Sr girls basketball team traveled to Almaguin yesterday. The girls came out strong, battling point for point. Some errors from the scoring table resulted in a change of score that did not favour the gryphons. Both teams found themselves in foul trouble because of tenacious defense. The point spread never exceeded by more than 10 and the gryphons battled back to take a 1 point lead with less than 2 minutes of play. Both teams battled hard but we found ourselves 1 point down at the final buzzer. Great game ladies we will get them next time.

Congratulations to Katrina Trott and Zack Sharpe for being nominated the athletes of the month for September.

Katrina has been a huge help in coaching the Jr girls basketball team by leading warm ups in practices and games.  She volunteered to do this job without being asked to do so. She has also been active in helping communicate with the senior team while ordering warm up shirts.  In addition, she is always the loudest voice in each team cheer which contributes to the morale and attitude of the entire team. She is an excellent role model to the junior players, who is also a skilled basketball player who is committed to improvement. 

Zack is a member of the cross country running team.  He hasn’t missed any practices, works VERY hard. If he is asked to run more, he never questions or complains but just runs more.  He is improving his times and running style, all while being very polite and respectful. If Zack and Katrina could meet Mrs. Clarke today at 11:30 by the gym for your photo.
