In October 2008, a dream finally came true: the Grossmont High School Museum had its Grand Opening. For years, the community, alumni, and staff wanted to establish a Grossmont High School Museum to preserve Grossmont’s amazing history. In 2007, upon their retirement from being high school English teachers, sisters Connie Baer, Class of 1965, and Lynn Baer, Class of 1969, spent 18 months creating the Museum displays from the remarkable memorabilia, which had been cherished for so many years by teachers, staff, and alumni.
On Tuesday, August 15th, 2200 students and 120 staff members began Grossmont High School’s 97th year. Amazingly, this year’s freshman class, Class of 2021, will be the 100th senior class to graduate as Foothillers.
Friday, September 15th, from 4-7 Grossmont will celebrate Homecoming and its 97th Anniversary. The GHS Museum will be open from 4-7 with campus tours at 5:30. Join us for another chance to celebrate all that Foothillers have in common.
The students and staff of Grossmont High School are quite proud of some recent achievements by the Foothiller students, staff, and community. If you would like to contribute to future Foundation scholarships, please visit the GHS Educational Foundation website.
For 96 years, Grossmont High School’s students and staff have taken great pride in the traditions surrounding graduation. Thursday, June 8h, 459 seniors became part of an amazing group-36,200 Foothiller graduates. Since 1936, the graduating seniors have been led into the ceremony by the Daisy Chain, an 81-year tradition. The teaching staff selects 50 young men and young women on the basis of their school activities, scholarship, and citizenship. Each year the students create two ivy chains with daisies interwoven into them, which these outstanding juniors carry; being selected is the highest honor awarded juniors. This year, as in earlier years, the students used ivy growing on campus, some of which was originally planted by Kate Sessions in 1926.
It’s our favorite time of the semester as we share our pride in our Foothiller Achievements the past few months.
