Garden County School Song
Cheer Cheer for Garden County High,
Wake up the echoes don't let them die.
Send our cheers both far and wide,
We've got the best players on our side.
We're never down, we never say die
Send our colors way up on high
As our loyal team goes marching
Onward to Victory!

Children Learn What They Live If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn. If children live with hostility, they learn to fight. If children live with ridicule, they learn to be shy. If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty. If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence. If children live with tolerance, they learn to be patient. If children live with praise, they learn to appreciate. If children live with acceptance, they learn to love. If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves. If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness. If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and others. If children live with friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place in which to live. ~Dorothy Law Nolte  more

Stuco Field Trip
Posted on 03/23/2017
Recently the Garden County High School Student Council was fortunate enough to take a field trip and explore western Nebraska's past. We started off the day with a stop at the Mari Sandoz Heritage Center at Chadron State College. This museum is dedicated to preserving the work of Nebraska author Mari Sandoz in addition to showcasing the region's rich ranching background. Our STUCO learned about how Mari Sandoz taught the world about western Nebraska, and how she worked her way to become a well renowned author across the nation. They learned about the different titles that related specifically to western Nebraska and each were given a complimentary packet of short stories written by Mari. Once the Sandoz part of the museum was complete our tour moved to the basement of the museum where students learned about the foundations of ranching in these lands. The museum had a variety of artifacts from the time including saddles, tack, and gear used by some of the first cattlemen of the area. They also learned about the importance of ranching to promote American settlement of the region.  more

Educational Exhibit
Posted on 03/09/2017
Garden County Elementary students had the opportunity to experience the Conservation Educational Exhibit based on Milton Bradley's "Operation" board game on Tuesday, March 6th. Scott Snell (Upper Big Blue NRD) braved the wind traveling with the map in a trailer on Monday to set it up! This traveling educational exhibit is a hands-on display designed to creatively feature all of Nebraska's 23 Natural Resources Districts (NRDs) with boxes that contain objects germane to the mission of Nebraska's NRDs. It is a three-dimensional model in the shape of the State of Nebraska. The exhibit measures 8 feet by 16 feet, and rises 1 foot up from the floor. It is fully wired with buzzer sounds and lights inside the three-dimensional Nebraska State Capitol. Each grade experienced a hands-on learning experience about our state and resources! Thank you, Scott!!  more
