  • SENIOR NIGHT: Friday, September 22nd

    It is a tradition at Gulf Coast High School to host Senior night to thank the parents of our Seniors for their support and to recognize our Seniors for the hard work and dedication they have given to our school. We will do the same again this year on Friday, September 22, 2023 during pregame at our home football game. Parents of Seniors attending the game please meet on the track just past the home concession stand at 5:30 pm. Our announcer will introduce the Senior student band members and their parents as they walk across the track to be honored.

    Please allow us to honor you and your Senior student by attending Friday night’s game to be recognized. In order to have everything organized for our announcer, we ask that you please fill out the form below by Tuesday, September 19, 2023.

    ** Each Senior student will receive TWO free tickets to the football game, our GCHS Activities office will provide a sign up for those tickets at a later date.
