Spirit Week

GBHS will celebrate 2023 Homecoming Spirit Days all week.

Monday was Rhyme Without Reason Day (think Cats and Bats)

Tuesday is Barbie vs. Ken Day

Wednesday is Dress to Impress as it’s picture day

Thursday everyone can dress like a construction worker

Friday is Panther Pride Day, of course.

This year the Pep Club Board has created a class competition, tracking participation by class all week and holding various gift cards and prize drawings for students who participate. Great Bend USD 428 Public Information Director Andrea Bauer reports that as of Monday, the sophomores are leading!
