GAF is very excited for the big game tomorrow! Let’s all keep in mind that a spirited crowd and an awesome game are what we all want to see and experience! With this is mind please see a message sent to the GHS Community below.

GO BIG RED!

Dear Students and Parents, December 7, 2017

This Saturday, our GHS football team will be playing for the State Championship at Boyle Stadium in Stamford. We hope to have a large, loud, and supportive crowd.

I remind both students and parents of our expectations for behavior. We “cheer for our team, not against the other team.” Over the years, in almost all cases, players and fans from other teams have commented that GHS fans demonstrate sportsmanship unlike many other schools. I’m very proud of that.

Given the magnitude of the game and the rivalry with Darien, the excitement level will be high. We urge all our fans to take the high road. We will not tolerate cheers that use profanity. We will not allow posters that mock or attack a player on the other team. It’s very simple: cheer for our team and not against the other team.

Thank you for your cooperation. Go Big Red.

Sincerely,

Chris Winters

GHS Headmaster
