On average, 6% of high school athletes continue athletic participation in college. This year, 8 members of the Class of 2020 let us know they have plans to continue their athletic participation at the next level. Traditionally we take time during the school day to honor students planning to participate in an athletic program at the collegiate level. While we are unable to honor students in the auditorium this spring, we would still like to take the opportunity to mention each student, congratulate them and wish them luck as they continue their athletic endeavors. Congratulations and best of luck to Madison Ross, Tyler Canata, Taylor Cornell, Toby Foehl, Evelyn Fuls, Jonah Kelly-Whitney, Brooke Phelps and Finn Welch. [video]

Students are placed on the honor roll when their quarterly letter grades average a B or better, and when the student receives no grade lower than a B- in all graded classes. If students earn any grade of a C+ or lower, their names will not be placed on the honor roll. The student must be carrying a minimum of four graded courses to be eligible. Students who withdraw from a course are not eligible for the honor roll for one semester.

This year Mount Greylock will be having its 4th annual pride event during May 26th-29th! While our pride event is typically a one day event hosted in June, this year, we want to celebrate for a week while the seniors are still in classes so they can join in. We invite all students, teachers, and staff to wear rainbow or bright clothing to classes, change zoom backgrounds to have some sort of rainbow included, learn about important members of the LGBTQ+ community in history, and listen to the GSA's playlist.

Further, the quarter weights have been shifted to calculate the annual GPA. The document MGRS Grading During Remote Learning outlines Mount Greylock's plans and definitions for terms.

...The ongoing racism due to this pandemic is causing more strife than necessary. Many don't understand the effects that racism has on everyone. It makes people feel alone, hurt, uptight, depressed, and more. There is no expiration date on the impact that racism has on people. It leaves a mark....

Thanks to strategic thinking last year, particularly from Finn Welch, the Peer Team redesigned its application process to be digital and hopefully both more thoughtful and efficient. During this year's Program of Study meetings with Mrs. Casalinova and Mrs. Maselli, members James Hetherington, Eva Myers, Laura Dupuis and Erin O'Keefe, shared perspectives about the Peer Team's role and challenges. Below is a letter to the sophomores and juniors from Peer Team advisor Mrs. Leitt about applying digitally this year.  Please note – applications are due on Friday, March 27.

During the first two days of class in September, CS50 students participate in Puzzle Day. These puzzles have "nothing" to do with knowledge of computer science but rather they provide a good way to have students think outside the box by being collaborative with their peers and sometimes their families. There is another version that is released in the spring and this year it is entirely online.  Mr. Price is sharing this news with his current AP Computer Science Principles students and wanted to share it more broadly.
