BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT
Date: September 2, 2021
Time: 5:00pm – 7:00pm
Location: North Courtyard & East Lawn

Due to COVID-19 restrictions the event will be held outdoors. We encourage attendees to wear comfortable clothing and shoes made for walking on grass and concrete. Families are asked to RSVP. This will help us plan for a successful Back-to-School Night.

In case of inclement weather on September 2, 2021, a virtual Back-To-School Night option will be available on the GWHS website September 15, 2021. We will continue to monitor the weather and communicate any cancelation Thursday morning.

MAKE HISTORY! DONATE YOUR AP UNITED STATES HISTORY BOOK
Former APUSH students and their parent/guardian. Coach Page and Mr. Vicente would LOVE for you to donate your old APUSH book as we are running low on classroom sets. We will take them in any condition and reward with a high five or ten! Swing on by Room 227 or 133 and make history!

ACTIVITY FAIR
All students are invited to attend the annual Activity Fair, Friday, September 3, 2021, 9:40am – 10:40am in the South Courtyard. We will be operating on an Assembly/Pep Rally Schedule to allow time for students to learn about and sign up for the clubs and activities GW has to offer. If your club would like to have a table, please have your club faculty sponsor email Ms. Richason at alyssa_richason@dpsk12.net.

COLLEGE REP VISITS ARE BACK
Rep Visits are returning (virtually) September 10! These are great opportunities for you to learn more about universities across the country and even world (we already have schools like Boston University, Oberlin College, Villanova University, Temple University Japan, and many others signed up to meet with GW students)! We will still host you in the Future Center for these virtual visits so you can come and focus on what the representatives have to say. Come to the Future Center (Room 113) to get help registering for visits on MaiaLearning.

ELITE PATRIOT DANCE TEAM TRYOUTS
The Elite Patriot Dancers will be hosting tryouts September 13 – September 16t right after school from 3:50pm-6:00pm in the cafeteria. You will learn choreography for the first few days and will have a final tryout on September 16! Think you have what it takes? You might just be the talent we’re looking for! Come dressed in comfortable clothing and bring water. Tryouts are open to all students!

PULSE HEALTH AND WELLNESS CENTER FUNDRAISING
Your help is needed to raise $50,000 for the Pulse Health and Wellness Center. A brand new School-Based Health Center is coming to GW in 2021-22. DPS will fund general construction and GW is responsible for finishing the space, purchasing furniture, and creating an environment that enhances the visitor’s experience. Students will have access to well care, sports physicals, vaccinations, family therapy, and care for chronic conditions like asthma. Patients are seen whether or not they have insurance!
