G-CHS Leaders to Go students challenged GCJHS students involved in Project ARROW to quickly follow the Ship Captain’s commands! The center picture is “Man-Overboard” where teams of 2 search the sea. The right picture is “4 Men Rowing” where teams of 4 row a life boat together. Students scrambled to create teams as directed…followed by discussions about the value of teamwork!! Thanks to all the students….great work!!
Project ARROW meets this semester for four sessions, two with Leaders to Go, a field trip to Butler University to participate in a Challenge Course and a final meeting at G-CHS including a tour for the Junior High Students.
ARROW is one of many school projects funded by the community through Greenfield Central School Foundation!

Classrooms of G-CHS Biology Teacher Danny Naegeli and Weston 1st Grade Teacher Trina Griesmeyer benefitted from the Greenfield Central School Foundation “Wish Upon a Star” program this year! Wishes are granted by a grateful community in appreciation for all our teachers do for our G-C students.
Mr. Naegeli received 5 Chrome Books which enables ALL students to have access to a computer during his Biology classes. Mrs. Griesmeyer received two Alpha Standing Desks which provide another learning station for “wiggly” first graders. Students can either stand at the desk or sit on a stool and the desk has a swing bar under the desk that allows the student to pedal. Mrs. G believes the students are meant to move! The desk gives them the opportunity for movement during the school day to both increase attention and decrease incidents of misbehavior.
Over $9,000 has been donated this school year to our teachers through “Wish Upon a Star”. More teacher requests can be found on our website or check with GCSF Director Myra Bleill for ways YOU can make a difference in our G-C classrooms.
