The FIRST LEGO League is a program that is designed to get students excited about science and technology. Participants learn to work as a team while designing and building a robot to perform specific tasks. They also spend a significant amount of time researching a solution to a real-life problem and presenting findings in the form of a skit at a competition. This program goes far beyond just playing with Legos!
GHCS Ski and Snowboard Club is an optional extra-curricular opportunity for students in grades 5-8. The club meets for 6 weeks in January and February. With the help of parent chaperones, the club travels each Friday night to Cannonsburg Ski and Snowboard Area (north of Grand Rapids) to ride the slopes.
Girls on the Run
Girls on the Run (GOTR) is a 10 week, after school program in the spring that helps prepare girls to make healthy choices and develop self-respect for themselves and others while training for a 5k run. GOTR is for 3-5th graders and uses a curriculum that offers lessons that address issues that are specific and relevant to girls of this age.
