Senioritis has begun to take hold of even the most ardent senior students of GSHS. We have two weeks left, so hang in there and take your zinc!
This Friday is the last day GSHS’s FBLA will visit Mr. Benson’s fourth-grade class. FBLA has organized an entrepreneurship simulation in the classroom. In small groups, they created a business complete with a name and a product. The students actually made their products and “sold” them to each other. While FBLA members worked with the students, the fourth-graders learned management skills, elected officers, and learned to become team workers.
It’s Fine Arts Week. Listen to beautiful voices, music, and see the amazing art of Glenwood students this week at GSHS. The Art Show is open through Thursday. Also, there will be a lively band concert 7 p.m. Wednesday in the auditorium, and our beautiful choir will perform at 7 p.m. on Thursday.
Now for the Students of the Week. Both students were nominated by Mr. Denny, a history and social studies teacher at GSHS. Zach Hallford and Caroline Brewer are courteous, excellent students. Though quiet, they both work very hard and set excellent examples in their classes.
Zach Hallford has lived in Glenwood for most of his life. He lives with his parents, Cyndy and David. He has an older brother, Daniel, who attends CSU. His family enjoys skiing and hiking together, and have climbed Mt. Elbert, Red Cloud, and Mt. Handes.
Zach was a member of our Mock Trial “second team” this year. He remembers the excitement of coming close to besting our first team during the regional competition. He also is the president of the new Japanese Anime Club, which he helped begin last year. Zach is also very involved as a Boy Scout, and is looking forward to beginning his Eagle Project. Good luck, Zach!
During his free time, Zach enjoys reading, playing video games, writing, drawing, and listening to music.
Zach looks forward to attending CSU after high school and majoring in English or journalism.
Zach believes the best advice he can give is, “Stand up for what is right, even if you are standing alone.” His favorite inspiring quote is from Albert Einstein: “Imagination is more important than knowledge.”
Caroline Brewer has lived in Glenwood for seven years of her life, and lived in Tallahassee, Fla., before moving here. She lives with her parents and younger brother. Caroline has an older brother in college. Every Sunday her family goes to church together, and in the summer, they love to take camping trips.
Caroline was a cheerleader the first two years of high school, but took this year off to focus on music. Caroline has a passion for playing the piano, and has been taking lessons for about seven years. She is also in the school’s choir.
Caroline likes to spend time with her family and friends, watch movies, and sleep! She is very excited for the upcoming summer vacation; she and her family are planning to visit relatives throughout the break. They may also visit Italy.
After high school, Caroline would also like to attend CSU and possibly major in accounting.
