It’s time to get excited about March Madness! Please mark your calendars for March 3rd, the kick-off to this special school-wide kick-off to March Madness week. Thanks to our generous (and hard-working!) PTO, ALL students will receive FREE pizza, snack and water at the 3:15-5:30 p.m. event. In addition to enjoying the DJ and dancing, any interested student can participate in “Cake Wars,” “Finish the Lyric” and an art contest. Sign-ups for these events are on the March Madness bulletin board in the main hallway. Sign-ups for the chess and corn hole tournaments are being completed by each team’s March Madness commissioner. Our goal is to have every GMS student who wants to participate in the weeklong event, have an opportunity. Please encourage your child to sign-up today!
In addition to the fun competitions at school, students and their families can sign up to participate in the March Madness service project, Soar5K, on April 1st. Even if your family will be out of town for spring break that day, you can make a monetary donation that will support the event which is a fundraiser for Dublin Special Olympics. Please go to the link below to sign up and send a print out of your registration with your child so that his/her team can earn points toward winning the service component of March Madness. I have also attached 2 documents that will give you more detail about this event.
The March Madness grand finale will take place right after school on Friday, March 10th. PTO will again provide a FREE snack to all students who attend. Stay tuned for more information in next week’s newsletter.
Have a great weekend!
