  • Yearbook Distribution

    Posted by KAREN TOUT on 6/1/2021
    We anticipate being able to distribute yearbooks by the end of July/beginning of August. Please be sure to check the GKHS website regularly for the pick up date. This has been an extremely tough year producing a yearbook without students on campus from September-March. Our yearbook staff are doing their very best to give students something to memorable. We appreciate a little grace for our students and staff who put this together with an extremely short timeline and limited opportunities/resources.  A special thank you to Mackenzie Hernandez, the student yearbook, editor for all of her hard work.
