With over 600 students taking advanced academic coursework this year, GW needs your support in proctoring end-of-year exams throughout the month of May. Sign up to help for as many sessions as you feel comfortable. There will be a training session at the end of April for everyone who signs up.
Gifted and talented students, stop by the GW Library and see Mr. Beard during lunch, office hours, or an off period on Wednesdays and get connected with GT supports and the high school ALP Process. Get inside information on the academic mentorships available at the high school level, and help plan what GT at GW will look like next year! Log in with your net DPS account HERE and get started on your ALP if you haven’t already.
For prospective and returning players, there will be an informational meeting with the new Football Head Coach Dwight Swift this Wednesday, April 3 at 3:15pm in the GW Cafeteria. Please come and meet Coach Swift and get information for the upcoming football season.
Join the Patriot Players for their Spring play as they present The Complete Works of William Shakespeare [abridged] (revised). This is a comedic interpretation of all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays in 97 minutes, around two and a half minutes per play. Don’t let the title fool you; this is not an evening of serious literary analysis. It is a fast-paced run of hilarity exploring all the opportunities for comedy along the way.
Complete Works runs from Thursday, April 11 through Saturday, April 13 at 6:30pm, with an additional matinee performance at 1:00pm on April 13. Student tickets are $8 at the door.
Please join Beautiful Black Girls in the Community Room this Thursday, April 4 to discuss some important events coming up this month. We will be discussing The Especially Me conference, The Culture Fest and having a guest speaker! Hope to see you all there!
