In October 2008, a dream was realized with the Grand Opening of the GHS Museum on the Grossmont campus. Prior to its opening, Connie Baer, Class of 1965, and Lynn Baer, Class of 1969, spent 18 months, organizing and creating the Museum displays.
During the school year, the ninth grade English classes visit the Museum as part of our efforts to share our wonderful 99-year old history with them. We are open each Wednesday at lunch for the students to explore our amazing traditions.
Open to the public the first Wednesday of each month and by appointment on other Wednesdays, the Museum welcomes alumni and the community to share their memories of Grossmont High, as we discover all that we have in common.
We Need Your Help!
The Museum operates solely on donations, which are used to create the Museum displays, to preserve our memorabilia, and to celebrate Grossmont's history. As we look ahead to moving into the 3,300 square foot dance room (Rec Room in 1950 Girls PE Building) in 2020, we need your financial donations to fund at least 27 new display cases, wall shelves, cabinets and mannequins!
MUSEUM & ALUMNI NEWS WINTER 2021
We continue to settle into our new location, thanks to our wonderful volunteers, our “Worker Bees”, who have helped us move. Recently, we moved all the trophies, which are now displayed above the large showcases, as well as many things we’ve had in storage for years. We continue to arrange the displays and even ordered 3 more small showcases. Most of the items we had stored are being integrated into the previous displays. This month we’ll have the last of the shelving installed, and we’ll move the display yearbooks. Then, the old museum will be empty. We began the move in early August; 5 months later we are almost moved in.
