Army Bound
Congratulations to Parker Blodgett as he officially signed with the United States Army. Parker departs for boot camp this summer.

PSAT Information
PSAT scores have arrived.  They can be picked up in the Guidance office.

Host Families Needed
Educatius International is still seeking host families for two of GDRHS’s incoming spring semester students. Eric is from China, and will be a freshman this spring.  He loves biology, chemistry, the outdoors, hiking, ping pong, swimming, and cooking.  

Paulo is from Brazil, and will be a senior this spring.  He describes himself as a very happy, friendly, and active person, who loves volleyball and drawing.  Unfortunately, Paulo has an allergy to cats, so cannot live with a host family who has cats.

Hosts are asked to provide the student with a bedroom, 3 meals a day, and a friendly family atmosphere.  They are also asked to complete an online application and background check, as well as a home meeting with the local coordinator.  There is a monthly stipend to help offset the costs of having the student in your home.

Rebecca, a representative of Educatius International will be at the high school Christmas concert at the middle school in Groton this upcoming Wednesday December 10th.  Come and visit her table to learn more about hosting one (or both) of these students. Students coming for spring semester arrive in Groton from mid to end of January, so home placements are to be confirmed before Christmas.

If you have questions please contact high school principal, Michael Mastrullo.  He can be reached at (978) 448-6362.
