Community Stuff 6/3/14
You are cordially invited to the GHS Greenhouse Ribbon Cutting this coming Tuesday, June 3rd 2014 at 3PM.
Refreshments to follow, provided by GHS Culinary Department and Gloucester U Cooking and Chemistry Classes.
Many different Gloucester groups under the direction of GHS Culinary Arts teacher Mr. Patrick Reardon have come together to provide “seed money” and labor for the NEW GHS Greenhouse. These include: GHS Environmental Club to Gloucester Education Foundation, GHS Culinary Department to Wolf Hill Gardens
The GHS Greenhouse will be used to support the GHS Culinary Department and Gloucester U’s Cooking and Chemistry Classes, as well as science experiments for the GHS Science Department.
Gloucester U is also looking for students who would like to help with the GHS Greenhouse over the summer session (see http://gloucesteru.weebly.com). The new Greenhouse is outside the far side of the Science Wing at GHS, next to the pre-school children’s play area. Please come and visit sometime – but please don’t pick the flowers!

Attached is a flyer for our old time carnival happening in Millbrook Meadow this coming Sunday. I’m not sure which version is easier for you to post, so I’m attaching both a pdf and a jpeg. We truly appreciate you posting this for us!
