What Will Be Fun About Your Holiday by Devon Schuett The holiday is getting close, and all the students at GMG are counting down the days. Before the holiday is here, I asked some students/teachers what they are most excited about during their vacation and here are their responses. Freshman, Levi Duden says he is most excited for giving and receiving presents. His older sister, senior, Abbie Duden says she is most excited for being with her family. Senior, Peyton Mannan, says she is most excited for the break itself and for being with her family. Junior, Elee Edwards, says she is excited for being able to sleep in. Junior, Ashley Miller, says she is most excited for getting more hours at work. Teacher, Mr. Mike Spurlin, said he was excited for having the family together. Some others I asked responded like this. Junior, Bryce Newcomb, says he is most excited for the snow. Junior, Bridger Claassen, says he is most excited for seeing an Iowa bowl victory. Senior, Austin Vaughn, and Junior, Matt Carlon, both said they are most excited for getting away from a certain someone for awhile. Regardless, everyone have a safe and wonderful holiday!
Fruit Sales By Chad Plaehn The GMG junior class would like to thank everyone that bought fruit for the fundraiser. The fruit will be brought to the GMG High School on Wednesday, December 11. Some of the money will be used for our prom. It was an awesome fundraiser, and we, hopefully, will have an amazing prom because of you! Once again, thanks for purchasing the fruit.
What Do You Want For Christmas by Anna Scheidel I interviewed the students and staff of GMG asking them what they want for Christmas. Alexandra Curry, a Junior, wants her car to be fixed. Luke Petty, a Senior, wants an X-Box. Bridger Claassen, a Junior, wants Iowa to win the National Championship in basketball. Mrs. Julie Upah, an English teacher, wants to attend church services with her family and for everyone to be healthy. Bailey Sonderleiter, a Senior, wants a laptop. Shannon Brown, a Senior, wants clothes. Ryan Larson, a Junior, wants a car. Chad Plaehn, a Senior, wants clothes. Trey Moore, a Sophomore, wants a video game called Battle Field 4. Devon Schuett, a Senior, wants money. Don’t forget, it’s the thought that counts. Also, remember to give as well as receive. Have a wonderful Holiday break!
Psychology Field Trip By: Ryan Larson Juniors and seniors in Mrs. Samek’s psychology class enriched their study of personality disturbances and treatments with a tour of the State Mental Health Institute in Independence, Iowa, on Monday, December 9. M.H.I. employee Mike Cook met with students to explain a history of the facility and the types of disturbances treated there, and to field questions from the students. He also led students on a tour of the operating room (no longer in use), parts of several buildings, and the museum. It proved to be an excellent learning experience for GMG students.
