Principal's Update 10.2
Parents & Students,
I am sending the email a day early because I want to express some thoughts that relate to our upcoming football games. The event this Friday is so exciting. The fact that our football team is competing for the district title during their first year of district eligibility is truly incredible. Our coaches and players have worked so hard to build a culture of pride, passion and integrity. They have taken on the task of “building The Hill” and done it well.
This is where I am asking you as parents to partner with us to establish a reputation of character and community. Regardless of the nuances of the game and the outcome, we have to be focused on how we are establishing our reputation as spectators and fans. From the student standpoint, I have received numerous emails commenting on how well behaved our students have been at various events over the past year. These young men and women are setting a great tone, and I am asking you to consider comments and actions when in the heat of the competition, because they do/will reflect on the greater view of Green Hill High School.
Help us to build a reputation of class, integrity and grace.
Just another, periodic reminder about the traffic pattern for parent drivers. You are not to pull through the front of the building to pick your student up, or park in empty spots and request your student exit the front of the building. I will begin blocking those areas off again, but then the people with permission (parents of some of our physically challenged students who have to use that area due to the ramps) have trouble gaining access when needed. Please consider this next time you pull through there for convenience, there are reasons for areas having differentiated access.
The students are also beginning to report parents parking in the areas designated for students. These students have paid for their parking spots and are doing their best to follow the procedures we have set in place for them, then they are impeded by adults not following the procedures.
Get your GHHS Hawks Spirit Wear! T-Shirts, Hoodies, Sweatshirts, PJ's, Beanies, Blankets, Cinch Sacks and more! Have your items shipped directly to you, ready for pick up in front office at school, or sent home with your student. Perfect for Holiday gifts! Deadline to order is November 7th. GO HAWKS!
Cafeteria Volunteers Needed: We are in desperate need of volunteers to help in the cafeteria to keep our lunchroom going! We have been filling in with Central Office employees and other volunteers, but we need more help. If you would be willing to help, here are the details of what we need you to do and how to sign up. Thank you!
The final deadline to pay is Friday, October 29th. There are two options for payment:
- School Cash Online
- It is the easiest way to pay, as you will simply log into your School Cash Online account and the fees from the AP Classes will be added to your account. It does not indicate the specific test your child registered for, but it will allow you to pay for as many tests as needed. I have a record of which tests each student is registered for, so please contact me if you have any questions. Here is the link to the School Cash Online: https://link.zixcentral.com/u/1763c003/-PHg_JQy7BG3KPX1hnsoMg?u=https%3A%2F%2Fwilsoncounty.schoolcashonline.com%2F If you have not yet registered in School Cash Online, there are excellent instructions on the Wilson County Website.
- This service does have a fee attached to it, which we understand can get expensive when paying for multiple AP exams. If you prefer not to pay the fees associated with it, you may choose the next option.
- Pay by check directly to Mrs. Quisberg on one of the below turn-in days & times. The subject line of the check must include the student’s name & tests they are paying to take. No cash will be accepted.
- Mrs. Quisberg will be available to collect payment from 8:15-8:45 in the commons area at GHHS on Tuesday, October 26th through Thursday, October 28th.
If students do not pay for their fall AP course exam by the final deadline on Friday, October 29th, their test order will be canceled and they will not have a test available on the May test date.
To help me to ensure you have completed all that is required, please take a moment to fill out the google form linked below. I will double-check everything is accurate with AP Classroom. *This is not a link to register with AP Classroom.
Enrollment for New Students - 21-22
Pre-Enrollment for the 2021-2022 school year for NEW students to Wilson County is now available. Follow the instructions below for the online portion of enrollment through Skyward.

What's Up Wilson!
The Wilson County Board of Education will hold a Work Session on October 28, 2021, at 5:00 p.m. and a Regular Board Meeting on November 1, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. at the Wilson County BOE Administrative & Training Complex, 415 Harding Drive, Lebanon TN 37087. The Work Session is for informational purposes only. No actions are taken, or voted on, by the Board at the Work Session. The purpose of the Board Meeting will be to discuss any matters legally brought before the Board.
This recommendation was approved unanimously by the WCS Board of Education on September 8, 2021: "To approve the recommendation from the Director of Schools to implement face covering requirements beginning Friday, September 10th, 2021 - with an opt-out provision pursuant to Executive Order 84 for all Wilson County Schools students, Wilson County Schools employees and adults on Wilson County Schools properties (during the school day) until October 4, 2021." This approved motion will be revisited at the October 4th BOE Meeting. Should families choose to opt-out of this approved requirement, then forms will be available via Skyward beginning on Thursday, September 9th. All families will receive additional notification tomorrow when the opt-out form is officially available.
