Hello GCM Community!

Welcome back to another exciting school year! My name is Sam Hedenberg, and I am the new publications adviser at George C. Marshall High School. I am excited to join the fantastic faculty here and look forward to working with your wonderful students and community.
The PTSA has graciously allowed me to provide you important information about ways you can assist in ensuring the health and success of our stellar, award-winning publications. Click HERE for more information about our publications.
The publications at GCM are completely self-funded and sustaining, meaning they receive ZERO funding from FCPS. Not only does this model provide an excellent learning environment for students to run a real, functioning business, it also ensures independence from school entities and solidifies concepts of journalistic integrity/objectivity.
As such, community support is CRITICAL to the health of the program.
The following forms will assist you in finding ways to assist in supporting the program’s success.
Similarly, donations of any size are always welcome and appreciated, especially if in the form of gift cards and/or school supplies (specifically reporter’s notebooks and Sharpie markers).
If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact me atsehedenberg@fcps.edu. Have a great school year!
Best,
Sam Hedenberg
Publications adviser, George C. Marshall High School

Mindfulness

Saturday, May 16th, 2015 by WebAdmin

“What is mindfulness?”, you may ask.

During this school year, parents and staff have been exploring ways to bring mindfulness to Marshall. What is mindfulness, you may ask. The group that Marshall has been talking with, Minds, Incorporated, define mindfulness this way:

“Mindfulness means to pay attention to the present moment, with intention, in a non-judgmental way. It is a practice of awareness and observation. (Jon Kabat-Zinn, a pioneer of Mindfulness in the United States)

Mindfulness allows us to have moment-to-moment awareness and understanding of the reality of what is actually happening inside our body, our mind, and our external environment. This simple act of noticing the reality of something as it is, stripping away the layers of our mind’s labels, judgments, and narratives, gives us the ability to respond, rather than impulsively react, to any event or circumstance in our lives. From this place of clearer seeing, we better understand the inner workings of our own minds and bodies, and have a newfound skill at making decisions from a place of strength, wisdom, and compassion. As these “Mindful moments” add up, it allows us to feel a greater sense of peace in our daily lives, and to help us connect with ourselves and others in a more profound way.”

Studies have shown that mindfulness can reduce stress and help with focus. With all the demands Marshall students face, we would like to equip them with the skills mindfulness teaches:  observation, acceptance, and awareness of both their inner thoughts and experiences and the world around them.

Some of the issues facing us are how to bring mindfulness training to the most students at the best cost. Stay tuned for more information as we work more of these issues out.

Questions/comments:  please email them toALAnderson@aya.yale.edu.

Support Activities at Marshall- Join Boosters!

Monday, December 1st, 2014 by WebAdmin

The Marshall Booster Club supports all extra-curricular activities at GCM. We sponsor fund raisers that are well organized, designed to minimize the amount of time involved, and offer a great way to meet members of the GCM community. Volunteer just 2 to 3 hours per year and you help insure that your student has the support needed to compete in ourdistrict’s athletics and activities. Join the Boosters, and/or make a donation to help support the boosters.

WE DEPEND ON OUR COMMUNITY TO SUPPORT ALL SPORTS AND ACTIVITIES. The county budget does not cover most anything you think they should. When you see teams with new uniforms, the latest practice equipment, helmets and other safety gear, and more, it is the Boosters providing those items.

Thanks to all who contributed goodies that we handed out to our Food Service Workers and our Bus Drivers and Attendants on October 17th and 20th.  As our numbers grow, so did our goodie bags and we are up from 100 to 120!  We included all of the Davis Center busses in our mix and all were thrilled to receive…when it comes to contributing, nobody does it better than our great parents and guardians here at GCM.  Thank you and Go Statesmen!
