Wellness exams and updated physical exam forms are due annually for all students at GHCDS. Now that summer break is here, it is time to schedule your child’s annual wellness exam and have their doctor complete the physical exam form. All students, nursery through 12th grade, are required to complete an annual physical exam for school entry as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. The completed physical exam form and a copy of their updated vaccination record is required on or before the first day of school. I encourage you to schedule your child’s wellness check-up as soon as possible to ensure completion before the start of school! If you have any questions regarding the medical requirements for school attendance please contact the School Nurse at email@example.com
Request for Prescription Medication Administration during the school day
Medical Eligibility Form : If your student will be participating in Sports or After School Activities, your doctor will need to complete a pre-participation physical exam and submit this form.

6th Grade Technology
6th graders applied the 2D and 3D design skills they developed in the previous trimester to their toy design project. They watched video tours of Hasbro and Jakks Pacific to learn how toys are designed and manufactured by industrial designers and engineers. Students visited various toy websites, researched different toy categories, and launched a toy company with other classmates based on their interests. Each team was tasked with creating a screen-free toy inspired by the Virgin Islands for toddler, preschool, or school aged children. They researched images of Virgin Islands culture and current toy trends for inspiration. After brainstorming with their team, they sketched ideas on paper, drew refined 2D illustrations in Vectr, and built 3D models in Tinkercad. Using Google Slides they created a presentation and explained their design process from start to finish.
