Do you want a Denver Public Library card? Stop by Pike’s Peak Lobby during lunch this Friday, September 29. DPL representatives will be here at George to help you sign up for a library card, which will give you access to over two dozen library locations all over Denver, as well as all of DPL’s online resources and databases. It’s easy to sign up, so take some time during lunch on Friday to learn about DPL and get your card.
Come to the GW Library during lunch on Tuesday, October 3, for a live performance by local poetry group Minor Disturbance. They’ll perform some of their own pieces and talk about the work they’re doing mentoring DPS students, including the new poetry club here at George. If you’re interested in slam poetry and spoken word performance, come enjoy some local talent, and learn more about how you can get involved.

On Wednesday, October 11 all seniors must attend a required college information session from 8:30am – 1:00pm.

We need members of the GW Community to speak for our school at upcoming Prospective Parent Coffees and Open Houses! P3 volunteers will connect with prospective parents and guardians during morning coffees to help them learn more about GW, answer their questions, and create a welcoming environment. GW Open Houses will feature a P3 table to welcome, engage, and invite prospective families to consider choosing GW for their students. P3 volunteers will share more about Proud Patriot Parents and ways to become involved. You can sign up to help with upcoming events using the form HERE. We need a diverse group of voices to spread the word about GW; we hope you will consider sharing yours!
If you were absent for picture day, you can get your school picture taken next week, on Thursday, October 5. Lifetouch will be in the GW Community Room all day to take make-up pictures. If you’d like to purchase a school picture package, you can pick up an order packet from the Main Office, Attendance Office, or the Athletic Office.
