This week, Mr. Cooper's GCHS 9th Grade Health class visited Mrs. Moberly's ATC Health Science classes to learn about CPR techniques!
Thank you to UK Healthcare for visiting our Health Science classes at the ATC last week! They brought the METIman simulator, so students could have the opportunity to listen to lung and heart sounds. Guests from UK Healthcare attended to discuss their specialties and experience working with UK Healthcare. Don't forget tonight- if you have a student interested in the medical field, we will be announcing and providing information on a new collaborative program between UK Healthcare, BCTC and Garrard County High School! The event will begin at 6:30 in the Garrard County High School Library!

We would like to thank everyone who took advantage of our Test to Stay program during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. The company providing this resource is no longer offering testing services, therefore GCS will no longer be able to offer this option to our community.
