From The Principal’s Desk…
Welcome to Girard High School. I hope everyone survived our hot and humid weather this summer. The fall extra-curricular activities began on August 15th and we are excited to start the 2011-2012 school year. We will be welcoming two new teachers to Girard High School this year. Caryn Skelton will be teaching English after moving to GHS from RAMS and Jim Funk will be teaching Health & Physical Education after moving from EVES. The curriculum has been strengthened with the addition of numerous new courses such as: Health Care Foundations II, Digital Literacy, Freshman Transition, Sports & Entertainment Marketing, Physics of Sports, Geology & Natural Disasters, Paleontology and Forensic Science. Girard High school’s teachers and students worked very hard last year and it resulted in us making AYP on the PSSA Tests, which is a very big accomplishment.
There are numerous extra-curricular, cultural and athletic activities for students to participate in throughout the school year. Girard High School is the “hub of activity” for the communities of Girard and Lake City. The school is in use, year round, by athletic teams, concerts, musicals, The Elk Creek Recreation Board, school board meetings, community groups and booster groups. Students and adults alike benefit from these wonderful activities that take place at Girard High School.
Please plan on attending and supporting our young men and women in their endeavors this school year. They make Girard High School and the entire community proud with their accomplishments each and every year.
Mr. Gregg McClelland, Principal
Girard High School
