Appreciation Grams! Articulate why you Appreciate!

Has a teacher at Gunn who made a difference in your life or got you excited about a particular subject? Next week (4/26-4/30) is Staff Appreciation Week!

Send him or her an Appreciation Gram and articulate why you appreciate!

The grams are free, and you will be able to pick them up at the SAC by the end of the week.

Our goal is to have one sent to every staff member on campus.  You are welcome to send as many as you wish, and feel free to send some to your friends to tell them what you appreciate about them, too! We plan to deliver them throughout next week and the week after.

6 Degrees of Separation

How are we all connected at Gunn? Does six degrees of separation really exist? Come find out this coming Wednesday!

ROCK and Not In Our School Week will be hosting a 6 degrees of separation event Wednesday, March 31, during lunch!

How it will work:
You will get a sheet of paper with a random name on the top. To make it more fun, it will be someone from another grade. Your goal is to find how you are connected to that person in 6 degrees.

Starting with the name at the top, walk around and ask if people know the person and once you find someone who does, get his/her signature on the sheet and write down how he/she is related to the person. Repeat the same process until you fill up your sheet to 6 degrees and connect someone back to yourself! The goal is to find as many connections as possible, NOT to get back to yourself in the least amount of degrees. Mix it up!

Teachers will also participate and are good people to ask if you are absolutely stuck (since they teach so many students each year and may have had your person as a student). They are kind of like freebies.

You will get bonus points for “creative connections” and if you find people from all grades to include on your sheet.

Awards, prizes, of course, so come out and make some connections!
