Freshmen Orietation Monday, August 11th

    Aloha, Class of 2018! Galesburg High School would like to welcome you! Freshmen Orientation will be held on Monday, August 11th from 11:00 to 2:00 at the High School.  This orientation is for all incoming freshmen and transfer students.  Orientation is a great opportunity to get acquainted with new people and a new school.  GHS has more clubs, sports, activities and opportunities than junior high.  Freshman Orientation is designed to help the freshmen adjust to these changes. 
Freshman class officer elections will be held at the first full Student Council meeting after the freshmen Student Council members are selected.  There are five positions open for class officers.  These consist of one president, two vice-presidents, one secretary and one treasurer.  The president will preside over any class meetings and represent the freshman class overall.  When the president is not available, the vice-president will take over all of the president’s duties.  The secretary will take minutes at any of the class meetings and the treasurer will keep the financial records in order.  Student council representative applications will be available at the orientation and during the first week of school in the front office.  Any questions? Please contact Mrs. Statham at 973-2001 or lstatham@galesburg205.org.

The schedule for Freshman Orientation is as follows:

10:30 – 11:00              Check In and Welcome     
11:00 – 11:35              Lunch
11:35 – 1:00                Guest Speakers, introduction of administrators, secretaries and counselors.

1:00 – 1:45                  Tour Groups
1:45 – 2:00                  Wrap up and some ID pictures taken

    Freshman ID pictures will be taken July 21st thru July 25th from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m in the main office at GHS.  Also, Freshmen may come in on August 5 or August 11th (during orientation) to have their ID pictures taken.
    Student Council is offering Freshman Orientation for FREE this year.  Lunch will be provided.  On the day of Orientation, please be dropped off and picked up at the front circle drive of the school (by the flag).  We look forward to seeing you there for food, fun, and a great start to your school year.

Senior portraits for Class of 2015 need to be scheduled

    Once again Dickerson’s Photography will be taking senior portraits for the 2015 yearbook.  Most of these sessions are done during the summer to give the yearbook ample time to schedule the session and get the finished portrait to the yearbook staff.
    There is a session fee of $25.00 payable at the time of the session.  This fee covers the expense of providing proofs and a print for the yearbook. Here is additional information.
