7th and 8th grade Quiz Bowl teams will be competing in the Great Plains Online Quiz Bowl the week of November 13th!

FOR PARENTS
Each fall, Gretna Public Schools holds a parent forum to inform parents of the many issues that our youth face.  This year’s forum will touch on adolescent stress, anxiety, depression, social media dependency, and coping skills.  Parents with children of all ages are encouraged to attend.
The event will be held on Tuesday, November 14, at Gretna High School and doors will open at 6:00 p.m.  Booths will be set up in the commons area from agencies such as:

  • Heartland Family Services
  • LiveWise Coalition
  • Prevention Means Progress
  • Drug Test Services
  • Nebraska Family Helpline
  • Local Law Enforcement Agencies
  • Sarpy County Sheriff’s Office
  • Nebraska State Patrol

At 6:45 p.m., we will move into the Auditorium for a sneak preview of the upcoming One-Act production and a panel discussion.  The panel will include a presentation on adolescent stress, anxiety, depression, cell phone/social media, current alcohol and drug use trends, and an update from the sheriff's office.  After the presentation, the panel will provide time to answer any questions.
Booths will open again after the presentation for parents to ask additional questions and acquire more information.
If you have any questions regarding the parent forum please contact the Administrative Office at 402-332-3265.

LEAVING SCHOOL EARLY?

If your student needs to leave school during the day for an appointment, please be sure to call ahead (402-332-3866) so the office can issue him/her a pass first thing in the morning. Issuing passes ahead of time helps to eliminate interruptions the classroom with calls to retrieve students at the last minute. Thank you for your help. Parents do not need to enter the building. Students may sign out independently, watch for parents to arrive, and then exit the south doors.
