The Giving Tree at GHS
The Giving Tree program at Gorham High School attempts to sponsor the families of students in need at the high school during the holiday season. Those families who choose to participate will be asked to submit a list of items that their children might need or want. Once all of the lists are obtained (around November) individual tags are made for each item and placed on a "tree" in the faculty lounge. Staff can then choose which items they wish to purchase and gift wrap. The child's gender, age, and grade are listed on the tag but identities of the children receiving the gift are anonymous. During the second or third week of December the gifts are delivered to each family. We usually sponsor on average 40 children in the Gorham School district. please contact Laura Ryan at 222-1077 if you are interested in helping out.
Partners in Education is a way for parents to be well connected with the school and to discuss and implement ways to improve the school. Meetings include a brief update on particular issues, concerns and school programs such as curriculum, guidance, activities, athletics, and many more. Then the team continues to work on ways to improve the school.
Stay connected and provide support and help through the Partners in Education. We meet from 5:30 - 6:30 PM in the Stickney Library at GHS. All are welcome!

NEW! Clothing Closet at GHS for High School Students
We are collecting Gently used clothing and foot ware that is appropriate for female or male high school students. We have set up an area where students can view and pick up items. Donations can be dropped off in the main office.
Food Packs - We realize that
the economy has been tough for many families in Gorham. A group of teachers has put together food packets that are now available to students. Information has been sent out to ALL students explaining the program and how to get the packs.

This fall, Gorham High School will again be participating in the “Hannaford Helps Schools” program. Any consumer who purchases participating products will earn money for our school. At GHS, we use the money to benefit students in a variety of well-deserved ways, for special endeavors.
There is no limit to the school dollars we can earn for our school. If you purchase 4 participating products, you earn $3. Buy 8 products, earn $6. Buy 12 products, earn $9, etc.
Consider this: If 100 families turn in just one $3-dollar coupon EVERY WEEK for the full 13-week program, that would net the school $3,900.00 !!!!!~ ...~~ just think what we could do for our students with that kind of money.
You will be able to easily identify the participating products on the Hannaford shelves – large “Hannaford Helps Schools” tags will be hanging below the usual shelf tags right under these products. The program runs from early September through early December.
At check-out, the cashier will hand you the school dollars coupon – just deposit it in the “Gorham High School” slot in the tower located near the store’s exit.
You might remember that last year, our school earned over $300 in three-dollar coupons…and then GHS was the biggest earner for the store, so we also received an additional $1,000!
Please help support special programs for our students. The program runs through December 1. Thanks for your participation!
