Greenfield High School

Help us Welcome our New Intern

We'd like you all to meet Luna, GHS class of 2016 & this year's GCTV Scholarship Winner:

Since we will be closed tomorrow and Friday for the holiday, we want to take this opportunity to wish you and yours a happy, healthy, safe, and grateful Thanksgiving.
