GLACIER WOLFPACK STUDENT OF THE WEEK Only the most sincere and enthusiastic students earn “Glacier High Student of the Week”. Be very proud of their accomplishments! Senior ETHAN ZEISS is selected as the GLACIER HIGH STUDENT OF THE WEEK for the week of January 20th. Ethan was nominated by Mr. Cusker and his name was randomly drawn from the weekly nomination box. “On a cold and rainy morning, at the early hour of 0730 in the morning, Ethan took the initiative to help our hard-working head custodian (Jud) to clean up the trash in the Senior parking lot. It was wonderful to see a student take pride in his school and to help a fellow person with an unsavory task.” Ethan has selected “80’s on 8” (Top Hits of the 1980’s) to be played in the GHS hallways during passing periods for the week.
