Gunn gives me hope because even though we are an entirely new group of students, we are still able to react to our tragedies in supportive and caring ways. Although I certainly have not yet fully processed what has happened, our school has already gone to the ends of the earth to help students that are reeling. The students and the teachers that I see walking around during their preps looking for the kid that is alone and giving them a hug, whether they know them or not, are why HMGGMH.
The minute you stop giving a fuck what people say or think about you, is the minute you start living a more fulfilling and kick-ass life. No one can tell the future, let alone YOUR future, so don’t let anyone keep you from doing what YOU want!
The bonds established in high school are ones that you will cherish forever. My heart goes out the Gunn community. Although I’ve been out of Gunn for some years, my memories Gunn and the people I met there have stayed with me and continue to inspire me. Stay strong and look out for each other. You are loved and thought of. Once a Titan, always a Titan <3
Congratulations, Helen, Devyani, Chandler, and Danny, for being honored this morning at the 2013 Palo Alto PTA Council Annual Honorary Service Awards. You are why HMGGMH!
These peer leaders participated in the first of three Constructive Listening training sessions. Thoughtful, empathetic students who volunteer their time to make Gunn — and themselves — better are why HMGGMH.
Now more than ever we need to express our appreciation and concern for one another. Smile at a stranger. Ask someone how he or she is doing — and really mean it.
Gunn students taking care of each other is why HMGGMH.
I graduated around two years ago, and to this day, I am still so very thankful for the environment of Gunn High School. This is an amazing school.
Sixty Gunn students have volunteered for QPR training to learn how to be even better Peer Leaders. Students who are both ambitious and caring are why HMGGMH.
Tell Gunn students and staff what you appreciate about them. Available in the SAC, in V-7, or with any ROCK member, they will be distributed next Tuesday, December 11, and they come with two blank ones to “pay forward.”
Consider sharing those sentiments here, too, so others can appreciate them.
Not waiting until it’s too late to tell people what we appreciate is why HMGGMH.
