GMS NEWS - November 19, 2015


As always, students have been working hard and have recently transitioned into their second trimester classes. I continue to be amazed by our kids here at Grizzell, and that is a reflection of you and the love and support you provide them. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to be the leader of this wonderful school and with the Thanksgiving holiday just a few days away thought it would be fun to share the top 10 things for which I am thankful.

10. It’s been sunny more than cloudy in the last 10 days.

9. We are having Hat-Jama day on Friday #comfort

8. Officer Dunson and his “Buses Only” sign #studentsafety

7. The GMS PTO who provides generously and graciously

GMS NEWS - November 12, 2015


Mid-November is here! With it comes the conclusion of our first round of parent conferences, the end of the first trimester, and the beginning of winter sports. Students continue to work hard and accept the academic challenges that come their way. Their perseverance is incredible and the support that you, their families, provide them is very much appreciated. I want to thank our PTO for their generous care of the staff during both of the parent conference evenings over the last two weeks. Their donations of yummy treats, delicious salads, and comforting main dishes give the staff the sustenance they need to lead positive and productive parent conferences.

I also wanted to recognize the leadership of our 8th grade class. They have recently initiated two significant service projects: support for the Syrian Refugee crisis and Honor Flight. On Wednesday, Veterans Day, I shared the following message with our students, recognizing the service of our veterans, but also challenging our students to be service oriented citizens. Our entire school will be participating in the support for the projects and as events are planned, I will continue to keep you informed of our progress.

We have been fortunate to have beautiful weather this week. Unfortunately, it looks like cold and wet days are in our upcoming forecast. With the change in the weather comes more students being dropped off at school so it is a great time to reach out to you about safety in our drop off and pick up zones.

GMS NEWS - October 29, 2015


Wow! It is the end October and of the first quarter already. I am so pleased with how hard the students are working, reading, and creating. Continue to encourage your child to read nightly and to ask questions when new ideas don’t make sense. Our entire faculty is here to support and grow students and they LOVE IT when students are curious about their new learning.

GMS NEWS - October 22, 2015


Greetings from our Nation’s Capital. We are having a great time! The weather is fantastic; students are learning and making connections; everyone is safe! Please make sure to follow @gmsDCSD on Twitter to get updates about the trp and other events happening at Grizzell.

There is a lot of excitement at Grizzell Middle School! Our 6th grade students are having a great time at outdoor education camp. Seventh grade students just finished their first fall sports season as Dublin City Schools athletes and 8th grade students are completing last minute preparations for their Washington DC trip next week. Thank you for your continued support of academics, co-curricular, and extracurricular activities. Students across the district reap the rewards of the entire Dublin community, but I know that our students as especially blessed with teachers and parents who encourage, prepare, and expect their best. It’s great to be a Celt!

It is difficult to believe we are more than halfway through the first quarter of the 2015-16 school year. As I reflect, I smile when I think about all of the wonderful opportunities our community, coaches, and teaching staff have provided for the Grizzell students: sports, clubs, canteens, 6th Grade camp, Washington DC and MANY rich, rigorous, creative thinking opportunities in the classroom. The Dublin City Schools really does provide an outstanding, unique educational experience. #TheDublinDifference

What a great day! It is sunny and cool and our trees are beginning to change their colors. These are all signs of autumn! Another fall tradition is attending a sports competition for one of our fall sports teams. All teams, volleyball, tennis, cross country, and football still have competitions left and I encourage you to check out the school calendar on the main page of the GMS website to find a game or match to attend.

The GMS book committee has been working hard scheduling an upcoming author visit which will take place next Thursday and Friday, October 1 and 2. We are delighted to welcome poets/authors Michael Salinger and Sara Holbrook to Grizzell to work with our students for two full days. The authors will host an assembly for each grade level and also facilitate writing workshop with students through language arts classes. Thank you to the PTO for funding the author visit and thank you to Mrs. Moshiri and the book committee for planning two wonderful days of learning activities for students.

We have had another great week at GMS! I want to offer a special “Shout Out” to the Washington Township Fire Department who provided CPR training to our Grade 8 teachers. Over the last 3 years, WTFD has CPR certified all Grizzell teachers! This is a wonderful community service so please make sure to show your appreciation if the opportunity arises.

GMS NEWS - September 10, 2015


It was great to see many of you at our recent Open House evenings. Based on the feedback I received, you were welcomed by our caring staff and left the event with a solid understanding about your child’s day here at Grizzell. Please feel free to contact your child’s teacher, guidance counselor or me if you have further questions.

GMS NEWS - September 3, 2015


It has been a great week at GMS! Students have easily adjusted to their new routines and to their new team of teachers. I continue to be impressed with how hard-working and flexible our Celtic students are. It certainly is a pleasure to be the instructional leader of this wonderful school!

GMS NEWS - August 27, 2015


Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! We had a great first day and the students arrived this morning with smiles and lots of enthusiasm. I am confident that great things will be happening again today and all year at GMS. With that said, if questions or concerns arise in your family, please do not hesitate to contact me at 718-8618 or evans_corinne@dublinschools.net. I would also like to invite you to follow GMS on Twitter at @gmsDCSD. Twitter is a great way to get “real time” updates about school events and important announcements.
