Staying Organized: At 3:00 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 12, Matthew McKinney (21) and Sarah Turpen (21) walked around the school to collect, count and tally up how many socks were in each first-hour sock box. I am the president of the student council, so that is why I was involved in the sock drive, Turpen said. My job was to advertise to fellow students as well as collect socks. The donated socks will be evenly distributed between Open Door Mission locations in Lincoln and Omaha.

School Representation: In the Side Kitchen Name Survey Google Form, students have the ability to vote from one of four logos designed by both the fall and spring marketing classes. These logos feature names Dragon Diner, Snack n Go, Dragon Lane and Drag N Go. I love this project, marketing teacher Ms. Chris Swantek said. I love the real-world application of it and think that it is great students were able to use skills from a class and combine it with something they, as well as other students, will be able to see. Located in their emails, these potential logos for the side-kitchen are available for GHS students to vote on. (Feature Photo)

Case Updates: A bar graph created by GPS publicly displays the current number of active and recovered COVID-19 cases there are throughout the district. We follow the Sarpy/Cass Health Departments directive measures and requirements for screening, exclusion and re-admittance of ill students, nurse Mrs.Bridgett Plathe said. This has changed several times since the start of school and will most likely continue to change as new research and date is collected on the novel virus. In total, GHS has 13 active cases (green) with 170 recovered cases of COVID-19 (yellow).

Life as a Barista: Kaleigh Zollman (22) poses for a photo in her Scooters uniform before heading to work. Since I started work in May, I had to wear a mask for six to seven hours, Zollman said. This made coming back to school a lot easier because I am used to wearing a mask now. This school year, Zollman plans on continuing to work at Scooters and hopes that it will not conflict with her busy schedule of newspaper and show choir.

Searching for Caches: Hailey Wojtas (22) is searching for a geocache on the back side of Salon DeMarco Suites. Sometimes finding a geocache can be really difficult, Wojtas said. When theyre small, theyre often placed in hard to reach areas such as in trees, gutters and bushes. When searching for a geocache, participants must be very observant in the area(s) they are searching for the cache in so that they do not miss out on discovering it.
