Important Information for Seniors

TN Promise- They have extended the deadline to watch the 37 minute mandatory video.  The deadline is now May 15th.   We have posted the link to watch the video on our social media outlets.  As of right now, if you are beginning your postsecondary in Fall of 2020, those community service hours are due no later than July 1st. Seniors that want to take advantage of TN Promise now have the option of doing virtual community service.  You can click on  (https://tnachieves.org/community-service/webinars/).

 

TN Scholar – If you plan on being recognized during the graduation ceremony as a TN Scholar, you have 2 options to turn in your 80 hours of community service hours.  You can e-mail those to Mrs. Cross at ancross@gcssd.org or you can bring those to school on Thursday, April 16th from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.  If neither of those options work for you, please reach out to Mrs. Cross to work out something else. 

 

Also, the local scholarships, which includes MacLean Power Systems, Collier Memorial Scholarship, Medina Historical Association, Centennial Bank, Medina Lions Club, Medina Funeral Home, and the Ruth Dean Hunt scholarships that were due on April 8th can also be turned in to Mrs. Cross from 10am-2pm in the school's main lobby on Thursday, April 16You are also welcome to e-mail those to Mrs. Cross at ancross@gcssd.org.  Again, if neither of those options work for you, please reach out to Mrs. Cross prior to April 16th to work out something else.

If you plan to attend Arnold’s Beauty School, we have gotten a $3500 scholarship application in this week.  You can pick up the application at the high school during its days and hours of operation. 

Our plan is to have you turn in the work ethic application on May 4th, which hopefully, we will be back in school at that time. 

We are contacting the parents of seniors to notify you that we will be distributing caps, gowns, stoles, yearbooks, graduation photographer order forms and graduation videographer order forms to seniors on Monday, May 4th.  Students will come during their assigned time.  The STUDENT MUST come and pick up his/her items because the student will have to try the cap and gown on in front of our staff to make sure it fits.  We will continue to follow state and local recommendations by having each student assigned to a certain table and all students will maintain the 6 feet recommended social distance. 

If the senior’s last names begins with:

Adams – Dyer, his/her time slot is 11:00 – 11:30

Eddings – Junkin, his/her time slot is 12:00 – 12:30

Kail – Rowlett, his/her time slot is 1:00 – 1:30

Schemer – Youmans, his/her time slot is 2:00 – 2:30

We look forward to seeing the seniors on Monday.  If your child can not make his/her assigned time slot, please e-mail Mrs. Cross at ancross@gcssd.org . Depending on how many we have, we will set a later pickup date and time. 

There is more senior information to come out soon. Please be watching for it.
