This last week before spring break, GSHS has CSAP testing. Although the freshmen and sophomores still must be at school by 8:15 today, Wednesday, and Thursday for testing, they can look forward to sleeping in as juniors and seniors. Classes begin at 12:30 p.m. for all students. Some seniors, however, may be finishing local scholarship applications.
Juniors have important class meetings at 9 a.m. both today and Wednesday, and a meeting on Thursday at 10:15 a.m. in the auditorium. Seniors need to attend a meeting on Thursday at 9:15 a.m. in the auditorium; important graduation information will be discussed. Friday is a normal “white day” and begins at 8:05. After that point, it is only a few short hours before students are released to the fresh air and spring break.
The Students of the Week to be recognized are Drew Matson and Angela Gabriel. Congratulations!
Drew Matson was nominated by Mrs. Whiting for his excellent work on the school’s Web site. Being a part of the school’s four man “Web site team” has been one of Drew’s favorite experiences in high school. He has put in many hours to make the Web site attractive and serviceable.
Drew’s family includes his mom Christina, two older brothers Robert and Stephan, and his grandparents. They enjoy eating dinner together, watching movies, and traveling. Drew really cares for his family, and he is grateful for how supportive they are of his dream to become a computer game designer. Drew has always wanted to create a unique game that everyone can appreciate, and looks forward to pursuing a career in this field.
Drew is a member of FBLA and competes (appropriately) in Web design and C++ Programming. He is also on the track team and runs the 400 and the mile. Good luck this season. In the little free time Drew has, he enjoys playing his guitar and kick boxing.
Angela Gabriel is this week’s other Student of the Week. Angela, a senior, was nominated by Mrs. Brooks, one of our excellent art teachers. She said, “Angela took it upon herself to help a new student. … She is a kind and very caring person.” Angela taught the new student an entire process in Pottery while Mrs. Brooks was busy helping other students with their sculptures and other pieces of artwork.
Angela has lived in Glenwood for eleven years with her five brothers and sisters, and her parents Lou Ellen and Pat. Angela is very close to her large family, from her almost 2-year-old brother to her older sister, who is a freshman in college.
Angela has been a member of Glenwood’s famed Cheer Squad since her sophomore year, and was in gymnastics for over nine years. She also participates in track and is looking forward to doing her best this season.
April will be an exciting month for Angela. She is looking forward to Prom and tryouts for the CSU Cheer Squad. Angela will be attending CSU to major in business. Good luck Angela!
Random Disclosure: Spring athletes are training hard for their first meets: they can be seen swimming at the pool, running the track, lifting weights, and teeing off. Good luck Demons!
