Google Cloud Camp at GD
GDRSD will be hosting a Google Cloud Camp Event on October 17th at the Groton-Dunstable Regional High School. This will be the second time we have hosted a Google training event.
The Groton Cloud Camp featuring Google for Education focuses on authentic and valuable ways to use the Google for Education Tools. The training keeps the beginner in mind while providing those ready to ‘level’ up with unique uses and tips for using Google apps in the classroom, organization, for productivity or collaboration. http://groton.appsevents.com/about

Friday Night Football
By Lorrie Stewart
GD Football Club President
Are you ready for some football? The GD Crusaders take on the St. Peter Marian Guardians on Friday under the lights at 7:00 PM. Our youngest Crusaders from the GD Youth Football and Cheer club will be on hand to help welcome onto the field our very own 2015 Crusaders in game two of what is turning out to be a very exciting football season. Gates open at 6:00 PM and besides the awesome chili, hamburgers and hot dogs for sale, the Football club has more give items to give away on Friday night! Keep your student ticket and listen for your number to be called by Maria Antonellis at half time. Chipotle and I-tunes gift cards are up for grabs this week! Maybe one of the 70 youth football players or 25 youth cheerleaders will walk away with the prizes at half time! Show your fan support and do your job...fill the bleachers!

We can’t wait to see the soccer fields of Massachusetts painted orange for Concussion Awareness Week, and we look forward to taking the #TTpledge.”
