    Suman Mediratta is a retired teacher working with Greene County College Partnership to assist any seniors who may have transition needs from School to college/work or any other community agencies or programs.

    Are you turning 18 this school year?

    Research indicates -that in almost every school district across the country -there is an increase in the number of young men who fail to register. The main reason is because men are not informed that they are required by law to register within 30 days of their 18th birthday. Registration is not only a legal requirement, but a civic duty and a key component of our national defense readiness.

    To help men register, they only need to go to SSS.gov. They can preregister at 17 years and 3 months of age and their registration will be held until they reach age 18. Why is this so important? Because every year, tens of thousands of men turn 26 years of age who failed to register. By then, the registration door is permanently closed. That means they are unable to receive federally funded college loans and grants; are unable to get into federally funded training and certification programs; are barred from all federal employment; ineligible for many state and local government jobs; and immigrants -documented and undocumented -will have a 5-year delay in processing their citizenship application. It can't be stressed enough -45 seconds online registering at SSS.gov can save a man 45 years of headaches and heartaches.

    Students this is a reminder to write your name on your Play 21 passes before turning them into the office.

    All students must have a parking tag and park in the student parking lot BEHIND the school.
    Students are not permitted to park out front in the visitors parking.

    Are you someone that is respectful, impactful and shows self-control? Well if so, be on the lookout for PRIDE tickets coming your way! Once you earn a PRIDE ticket drop it off in the designated PRIDE box in the Guidance Office.

    All GCCC Students must be in uniform!
    First period teachers please check for uniforms and IDs.
    Any student not in proper 2019-2020 GCCC uniform must report to room 131 to borrow a uniform!

    “If you need to add lunch money to your account with cash, credit card, or check, you can do so in the supply room. If you need to make a payment on your student fees, you can make the payment in the supply room. If you need to buy a parking pass, you can purchase it in the supply room. If your ID barcode does not work for the lunch line, please go to the supply room to have this changed.

    ATTENTION STUDENTS: The expectation is that students are in class on time, every day, and every period! If you need a clean sweep, please go to Mrs. Taylor( # 308) or Mrs. Osburn’s ( # 131) room…the room closer to your class.
