Autumn Glory Royalty Information: Juniors, it would be a great honor to be part of the 2015 Autumn Glory Festival Royalty Court and represent Garrett County. The Garrett County Chamber of Commerce would like to invite all students in their Junior year to submit an application and application fee by Friday, May 1, 2015. The Chamber will be choosing a king and a queen for the Court and each member of the court will receive an education contribution. Please see Mrs. Cosner in the Main Office for an application.

Nomination Process for Gifted and Talented Process Open The nomination process for high school students is now open.  Nominations from parents, students and teachers will be accepted until April 30, 2015. Parent nomination forms for the high school program are available on the Southern Garrett High School website.Once nominations are received, a committee at the high school  collects academic information about nominees and makes a determination whether a student meets the criteria for the program.  Students and parents are informed of  the decision by the beginning of the 2015-16 school year. A common reason a student might be nominated for the high school gifted and talented program would be because a student is seeking opportunities to explore solutions to real world problems  in a topic of interest related to an area in which the student  demonstrates exceptional ability or a future career goal.  Students seeking to nominate themselves should request a meeting with Beverly Sincell, Southern High Gifted & Talented Coordinator.

Yearbook Orders  Yearbook orders and payments for the 2015 yearbook must be done by June 1.  Go to the yearbook-Highlander page for more information.
