Bella AuClaire - Week of January 20, 2023

Ethan Grant - Week of January 12, 2023

Hannah Keller - Week of January 5, 2023
“Is there anything better for us to witness and be a part of as teachers than students growing, learning, maturing, developing, changing, and improving right before our eyes? Hannah started this semester in Accounting 1 with a bit of a negative attitude earning an 80% B- in quarter 1. She was a bit grumpy and I had a hard time eliciting smiles and engagement from her. But...things began to turn and all of a sudden, her attitude changed, smiles started to appear along with fun engagement and interaction, her work ethic increased, she started consistently doing extra credit on every assignment, test scores increased and needless to say, I am very, very proud of her. This is what it's all about!” -Grady Bennett, GHS Business Teacher

Jet Bolster - Week of December 16, 2022
“Not only does Jet have the academic chops to deserve this recognition demonstrated by excellent grades and exceptional participation in the classroom on a day to day basis, but she demonstrates the essence of one of our values here at GHS-grit.  I find Jet's academic abilities all the more extraordinary because of the personal struggles that she has had to overcome to be an excellent student.  And she just moved here and has had to learn about a new state, community, a new school as well as try to make new friends.  Students like Jet that rise to the challenges that life throws at them and achieve academic success in spite of the difficulties are truly deserving of this award. Well done Jet!  I am honored to be one of your teachers.” - Matt Ford, GHS Science Teacher

I appreciate that she showed just what we value - she was a part of the Pack!” - Ivanna Fritz, GHS English Teacher
