Goreville processes over 400 students in one day of registration

Processing1Goreville Grade School and High School registration for the 2014-15 school year was held last week in the school cafeteria and processed over 400 students in one day. According to principal Jerri Miller, this is the first day that registration has been done all in one day. Due to the invaluable help of many volunteers, including the high school beta club and others, the entire day went much smoother than anyone anticipated and the “one day registration” will probably become the normal practice for upcoming years.

According to office staff, the big thing for students’ early registration is always locker assignment. Everyone wants to get the best locker location possible. Also important to eligible high school registrants to make sure they get a parking permit if possible.
