GHS is pleased to announce the High School Play for 2012: "Little Women"

GHS is pleased to announce the High School Play for 2012: "Little Women"

"Little Women" by Louisa May Alcott, adapted by Gary Peterson

Directed by Laurie Timm

Little Women is a coming-of-age story about family love, loss, and struggle set in mid-nineteenth-century New England. The young woman at its center, Jo March, is a fictional character based on the author Louisa Alcott. Jo March is bold, outspoken, brave, daring, loyal, cranky, principled, and real. She is a dreamer and a scribbler, happiest at her woodsy hideout by an old cartwheel or holed up in the attic, absorbed in reading or writing, filling page after page with stories or plays. She loves to invent wild escapades, to stage and star in flamboyant dramas. She loves to run. She wishes she were a boy, for all the right reasons: to speak her mind, go where she pleases, learn what she wants to know — in other words, to be free.

Performs February 17 & 18, 7:30pm

Connected to class 24 hours a day

GREENVILLE (WZZM) - 450 Greenville students will now be connected to class 24 hours a day.

The school district is giving students at the elementary, middle and high school levels Droid X2's and Samsung Galaxy Tabs as part of a new pilot program.  Greenville School District Technology Director LeeAnn Eyer says the goal is to provide educational access for students no matter where they are.

It used to be everything you needed for Algebra class fit squarely on your desk - book, notepad, pencil, and that Texas instrument calculator.  Now, something with the brains of 'all of the above' is squeezing its way into the hands of students.

"We don't have to take the book home," said freshman Kelsey Adams.

She isn't complaining. Her teacher, Dave Fortino, can plug in a lesson, and if she doesn't quite get something, she can plug in to listen.
