Meet Karleigh Garrett

Hello, my name is Karleigh Garrett. I have been in banking for over 5 years and got the wonderful opportunity to be the Bookkeeper for GHM and GHE, so here I am! I have a sassy 3 year old daughter (Aleigha) who keeps me on my toes. I grew up in Holly Pond and live on a farm out there! In my spare time I enjoy spending it with family, friends and being outdoors.

Meet Jeanie Rhodes

Hi! My name is Jeanie Rhodes. I'm super excited about being Good Hope Middle School's secretary. I have been a substitute teacher at the Good Hope campuses for the past 8 years and have been involved in the PTO. I have assisted the Good Hope Archery teams for the past 4 years. I have been married for 17 years and have 2 wonderful children who attend Good Hope Schools. I enjoy spending time with my family and drawing. I am very blessed to be part of the Good Hope Middle School family.


Open House/Student Showcase October 22nd

Students did a wonderful job presenting to parents/guardians during the first Open House Student Showcase. Parents/guardians were able to experience a "day in the life" of their middle school students. Family members were able to spend a short time in each class that their student's attend throughout the day. It was a well attended and much-enjoyed event by both students and their families.

Student/Hero Ice Cream Social October 16th

A big thanks to our B4 High group and the many volunteers for providing the students an opportunity to invite a "hero" in their life to an Ice Cream Social. Thank you to all of the heroes in our students lives that were able to attend and even if you were not able to attend, we still thank you for the positive influence you have in our students lives each and everyday. They need you more than you know!

Individual Chromebooks come to GHM!

Through the Cullman County Board of Education, we are a trial school for a program titled "Enpower" which allows students in the 8th grade to receive an individual chromebook assigned to them. The chromebooks are a great benefit to all students, but especially to those who may not have access to a computer and/or internet at home. For those who do not have a reliable, stable, or presence of an internet connection, the program also provides a 2 gigabyte mobile hotspot for use with the chromebook while students are away from school. The program has just began in Cullman County and we look forward to the positive effects we will see from it.
This month's newsletter was produced and edited by 8th grade student, Sam Cregan.
