Senior Pictures for the 2016 Yearbook

Congratulations to the upcoming senior class of 2016. It is already time to schedule senior pictures for the 2016 yearbook. Senior Portraits mark an important milestone. After all, it is the photo that you'll share with family and friends, plus it's what immortalizes you in the yearbook. We are pleased to be selected as the Senior Portrait photographer for your son/daughter!!! Mikel's Photography & Design is a locally owned and operated by Mikel Conrad, a lifelong Henderson resident. Our goal is not to photograph every school or student in the valley like other have tried in the past, but rather to take care of the Henderson area we consider to be family.

In order to have your picture in the yearbook, you must have the traditional school pictures taken at Mikel's Photography & Design portraits studio, located at 155 S. Water St in Downtown Henderson. There is a $20 sitting fee, but there is no obligation to buy any pictures; the sitting fee covers several poses and basic retouching. You will choose the image that will be sent to the school even if you do not purchase pictures. The sitting fee goes up to $40 after September 7, 2015.

Please visit www.MikelsPhotography.com for additional information.

Yearbook pictures must be taken this summer in order to meet yearbook deadlines, so please make it a priority. We would like all photos taken by October 9, 2015. The studio is open evenings and Saturdays for your convenience.

Girls will be wearing the traditional black V neck wrap and the young men will be wearing the tuxedoes. We will have these at the studio so please plan on arriving a few minutes prior to your session to be fitted.

You are more than welcome to contact us to schedule an appointment time you may go online. Click on the Senior's tab and then to our contact page to schedule a time on line. We then will get back to you to confirm the time. You may call the studio at 702-564-7166 to speak with us and schedule a time as well.

GV Students meet Scott Anderson, the author of Lawrence in Arabia

Jason Garner, one of our English teachers at GVHS, had the opportunity to go with six of his students to meet Scott Anderson, the author of Lawrence in Arabia. We were afforded exclusive time with him to talk about the writing process and the subject of his book. It was truly a unique experience that we will all treasure. Mr. Anderson writes both fiction and nonfiction, so we were able to talk about the difference in the two styles of writing and how to prepare to undertake each.

No Special Deliveries

Please be advised that "special deliveries" such as flowers, balloons, cookie bouquets, special lunches, etc., cannot be accepted. These items are a disruption in the classroom and pose a safety hazard in the hallways. We cannot hold onto these items until the end of the day and be held responsible if they are damaged or lost. Additionally, these items are not allowed on the school bus.

Also, we cannot accept money deliveries for students at the front desk. The school cannot accept the liability for money delivered to students. If a school/class fee is due, payments can be made at the school bank or our Web Store located on this site. Money can be placed into student lunch accounts at www.myschoolbucks.com.

Finally, pulling students out of the classroom to pick up money, homework and other forgotten items causes a disruption to their education. Except in emergency situations and at the discretion of Administration, students will not be removed from class.

Thank you for your cooperation in these matters.

Valedictorian and Salutatorian Status

Valedictorian status is awarded to the student(s) earning the highest grade point average in the graduating class. The highest possible GPA in a class is 4.8. Salutatorian status is awarded to the student(s) earning the second highest grade point average in the class. Candidates for the valedictorian/salutatorian designations will be identified at the end of the fall semester of their senior year. This ranking will be based on any and all completed high school credit granting courses, including those courses which receive the weighted grade point average (GPA). This includes 14 classes, 4 (2 credits - 4 Semesters) of which are designated as Advanced Placement (AP) and/or International Baccalaureate (IB). Final valedictorian(s) and salutatorian(s) candidacy will be determined upon the completion of all high school credit course work through the eighth semester.

If you feel that you should be considered as Valedictorian or Salutatorian, please discuss this with your Counselor.
