GHS Hosting First PBIS Building-Wide Celebration
December 13th marks yet another Friday the 13th on the calendar. However, this Friday the 13th is a special one at GHS. GHS is hosting its first PBIS building-wide celebration! What are we celebrating? Data shows that discipline offenses have been reduced by 9% in the first three months of this year in comparison to last year!! This trend shows that the students and staff are responding positively to the implementation of PBIS. We look forward to taking the time on the 13th to acknowledge all of the hard work and positive behavior that is going on at GHS. Word on the street is that food may be involved...!
GHS Honors German Students Experience German Culture in Chicago
Glenwood High School 3rd, 4th and 5th year Honors German students were able to experience two of Chicago’s most interesting and culturally inspiring venues, the Goethe Institute and Christkindlmarket. At the Goethe Institute, students participated in classes conducted entirely in German. They were shown a Powerpoint presentation and German movie, and played quiz games to practice their language skills. The Christkindlmarket offered students the opportunity to interact with numerous German speaking vendors and experienced authentic German traditions without having to travel any farther than the city of Chicago.The one-day trip was made possible by a “Beyond the Walls” learning grant from the Ball-Chatham Educational Foundation.
