Re: Post High School Readiness 

As Principal of GCHS, I want to personally welcome you and your parents to your senior year! Your four years of high school are almost completed. I want to let you know that near the beginning of the school year, we will have a special night for seniors and their parents dedicated to helping you navigate the post high school process, whether that be the college application process, scholarship acquisition, technology school attendance, job searching, or joining the military. The counseling department will be facilitating this evening. Please stay tuned for the specific date and times. In addition, Shanda Thompson, USU Moab student advisor will be helping in our counseling center this year. If your needs for post high school are not being met, please let me know so I can help make your senior year the best year of your high school experience. You can e-mail me at: or call me at 719-4890.

Thank you.
