Good evening Gloucester High School families and staff,
This is Nate Collins, principal of GHS, and this is your Weekly Update for the week of May 1st, 2017.
Sports physicals for the 2017-2018 sports seasons will be offered at Gloucester High School after school on Wednesday, May 3rd and again on June 1st. Students must be pre-screened by the school nurses to register for their physical. Students may be pre-screened before school or during lunch, not during class time. Sports physicals cost $20. Students need a physical to condition or tryout for any sport here at GHS. Physical forms are available in the Main Office or on the GHS website and must be filled out by a parent or guardian in order for a student to be pre-screened.
Everyone is invited to attend the GHS Artists’ Reception on Wednesday, May 3rd from 4 to 7 pm at the Gloucester Public Library on Main Street for the 13th Annual GHS Student Art Show.
