Good morning, Blue Wave.  Today is Friday, February 9th and it is an A Day!



Congratulations to the Lady Wave Basketball team for their district win over Maclay last night.


All Varsity and middle school football players who completed the season need to see Coach Johnson during power hour or lunchtime to get a form for the banquet.


This announcement sponsored by ARK:  this week , Feb 5 – 9th, is
“Start with Hello Week”.  We challenge everyone to say hello to 2 people they do not ordinarily say hello to, and if you are brave enough follow up with a conversation starter!


Attention 7th – 12th graders: Are you interested in performing poetry or spoken word? The 4th annual Alachua County-wide teen poetry showcase will be held on February 25th, 2018 at 5pm.  The goal is to have students across the county be highlighted for their poetic gifts.  Last year, several of you performed with the GHS poetry club and they would like you to join them again.  If you are interested, or need more information, please see Mrs. Koppitch in the library.


The P.K. Yonge Spring Musical, PIPPIN, opens next Friday, February 16th and continues through February 24th.  Get your tickets online or in the business office.  Don’t miss this extraordinary show!


Make plans to attend the Dress Code Town Hall next week on Thursday or Friday in the library during Power Hour.  This is your opportunity to express your ideas and opinions to inform the revision of the Dress Code for next year.


Good Morning, the National Junior Honor Society has accepted the challenge of helping to find a cure for blood cancer!  Over the next 3 weeks our school will be working to reach a goal of $1,000. If everyone at the school donates $1 we can reach this goal!  You can donate any amount (pennies, quarters or dollars). Donations for the Pennies for Patients campaign will be collected for your first period class. The first period class with the highest collection can win a celebration party if the school’s goal is reached.  Thanks in advance for your generosity!


Attention Seniors:


Senior sessions during power hour on Monday, February 12th will have a Santa Fe College Achievement Program Representative there to discuss this opportunity and explain the process with current seniors. CAP is a six-week summer enrichment experience designed for graduating seniors from Alachua and Bradford Counties. This transition allows for a smooth start in college once students begin in the fall.


If you want a senior T shirt, please get a form from one of the senior officers and bring the form and $9 to Mr. Bice. Please turn your money in today!
