Griswold High School
Capstone Community Service: All students
The Griswold High School Vision of the Graduate includes "Engaged Citizen." As part of graduation requirements, each students is required 10 hours of community service each year. Students can get a head start on their annual hours over the summer. Learn more about the Community Service Guidelines and get project ideas on the Capstone: Community Service webpage.
Are you new to GHS or are you an incoming GHS 9th grader? Be sure to print out and complete the Community Service Acknowledgement Form and return it to school when you get back in the fall.
Rationale: Being an Engaged Citizen ties into the habit of mind of Learning Continuously. When you engage in community service, you demonstrate leadership skills, act empathically, and develop confidence in your abilities to try new things.
Specific courses require assignments before returning to school in the fall. See below and contact your teacher if you have any questions.

Griswold Elementary School
Governor’s Reading Challenge 2022 – Read Beyond the Beaten Path!
GES Students entering PreK – Grade 4 next year are invited to participate in this program during the summer. Write down the title of any books you read on the Reading Journal*. You do NOT have to fill all the lines. This is for fun. It doesn’t matter if you read 2 books or 32 books! The important thing is to fill out the information on the back of the journal with your first and last name and the name of your 2022-2023 (next year's) teacher.
*If you don’t have a printed journal, it is OK to use a sheet of paper as long as you include the information on the back. (Name, grade, teacher, etc)
Read whatever you enjoy!
If you participate in any of the public library programs or someone reads a book to you, those count. So do audiobooks, magazine articles, and ebooks.
Return the journals during the first two weeks back to school in the fall of 2022. Participants will receive a certificate of participation and be entered into a drawing to win one of two Kindle Fire Tablets. HAVE FUN!
