Elementary Robotics is back! Papers have been sent home with 5th and 6th grades students for this program. This is a free after school program that is offered with the help of the group Martin County Know How. Look for bring pink sheets of paper with the information. If your student is interested, have them bring the filled out sheet to school by October 7th, 2022. We look forward to having as many people participate as possible. Also, this year, the 5th and 6th grade competition will be held at GHEC schools on December 10th. Practices/build dates will begin after MEA (day of the week will be decided upon next week when I get all student participation sheets back). 3rd and 4th grade, don't worry, Robotics for you guys will be starting around January/February 2023.

Thanks to the Martin County Sheriffs Office, Fairmont Police, Officer Ballard, Deputy Tietje, and Deputy Gerhardt for facilitating school safety training at GHEC today. This is training we hope to never use, but aim to be prepared.
Prior to the pandemic, GHEC facilitated a Junior and Senior class trip to the Washington D.C. and New York City areas every other year. Over the last two years, the senior class has identified a more local destination as a class (i.e. the Twin Cities, Des Moines, Omaha) and has not traveled a great distance. To help us best plan and prepare for the future years at GHEC, we would appreciate your input on what the best options for future trip offerings should look like. It is important to consider that the cost of travel has also become more expensive recently, and our last trip estimate to the East Coast was in the $1,500.00 price range. We do anticipate that the estimate for such a trip will exceed $2,000.00 for future trips and that this price range does eliminate some students from participating in this opportunity. Our band and choir programs also facilitate a trip on an every-other-year basis, and the junior/senior trip has traditionally alternated with this. We are looking for input and feedback on how we can best structure future trips at GHEC, and what scope of trip would be most desired by our students, parents, and community. It is important to note that the primary focus of a class trip is to provide an educational experience, with the secondary purpose of providing our students with the opportunity to expand their travel horizons and have an enjoyable time with their classmates. Please consider completing the following three-question survey to help us decide the best options going forward. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdze9VK3L5TPp1BRCmCXbrBmSijpqOGLqjQ5GlfX5ra2ky95g/viewform?usp=sf_link
