GOLDEN FOOTBALL: On behalf of the NFL, they would like to congratulate the George-Little Rock High School and welcome us to the Super Bowl High School Honor Roll community celebrating schools that have contributed to Super Bowl history.  
The Super Bowl High School Honor Roll was created last year as part of the Super Bowl 50 celebration. This program honors the high school and communities that have positively impacted the game of football. Nearly 3000 players and head coaches, from more than 2,000 high schools were recognized last season with the presentation of a commemorative Golden Football by Wilson.
High Schools across the country and globe received a commemorative Golden Football produced by Wilson for every player or head coach who graduated from the high school and was on an active Super Bowl roster.
We received a Golden Football to honor Tyler Starr, who was on the active roster in Super Bowl LI and is also a graduate of George-Little Rock High School.
The NFL is proud to induct our high school in to the Super Bowl High School Honor Roll. This Golden Football is displayed in the High School office until it will be placed in the trophy case.

MAKE-UP DATES: We have been blessed with some nasty winter weather that has prevented us from having school.  To date, we have missed four full days and a series of early outs and late starts.  The G-LR Board approved a proposal that will add three full days of school and allow us to meet the state requirement for hours of instruction.  
The following days will be our make-up days and will be regular school days:
     Wednesday, May 24th
     Thursday, May 25th -Last day for students
This will extend the original last day for students by two days.
