GMS NEWS - December 1, 2016


I hope our recent break was relaxing and filled with fun. If you were able to enjoy family and friends in addition to finding time to rest, that is a bonus! In the spirit of giving that often comes with the upcoming winter holiday, I want to fill you in on several service opportunities our students have recently initiated.

  • Team 7-2 has spearheaded “Helping at the Holiday.” Student are working to raise $500 by selling coupons for around the house sorts of jobs- raking leaves, shoveling snow, hanging holiday lights, etc. The money they collect will be used to provide gifts to a needy family in the Central Ohio area.

  • #JJStrong,initiated by JJ Thomas’ classmates and friends, has raised over $1000 through the sale of orange wristbands. A few wristbands are still available and can be purchased for a minimum donation of $1.

  • 8th grade students will be working together on the afternoon of December 16th to make items such as fleece blankets and meals for the homeless of Central Ohio. Please look for emails from team leaders or teachers about his initiative if your child is in 8th grade.

  • FCA students have organized a toy drive through the end of the day on December 2nd. Toys can be dropped off in Mr. Wadenstierna’s room or in Mrs. Yuen’s room.  All donations will benefit NC4K (Nellie's Champions for Kids). NC4K is a local organization that supports pediatric cancer families.  Throughout the year they offer financial aid, hospital support and host events that inspire their families to make life a little easier for kids and teens with cancer.  All toys and gift cards donated will be given to local families affected by pediatric cancer at NC4K's annual Christmas celebration.  Often these are the only gifts the children receive due to financial hardships caused by their cancer diagnosis.  

  • Jr. Teen Institute has organized a book drive during the week of December 12. Please have your son or daughter listen for announcements regarding when to turn in books.

Finally, I want to remind you that our Library Book Fair begins tomorrow and concludes on December 12th. Students will have an opportunity to purchase books before school, during study center, and after school. Families can also make purchase on the evening of December 12th from 6:30-7:30pm. See the student book fair schedule below as well as a link to purchase books online.

Have a great weekend!


GMS NEWS - November 11, 2016


One of the things for which I am most grateful is the kindness, compassion and generosity I see on a daily basis here at Grizzell. Our students consistently demonstrate how much they care for one another. An example of this became very evident within the last week. One of our students was recently diagnosed with a serious illness. Last week, without any prompting, students approached me with ideas on how they could support this student and his family during this difficult time. They decided they’d like to order wristbands and carefully thought about the message and the color they thought would be appropriate. In just one day, we distributed more than 450 orange wristbands to students and staff with the message #JJStrong. Students were asked to make a donation of one dollar or more and we collected more than $850 in just one day. This money will go toward assisting the family. We have a limited number of wristbands that remain and I told the students we will order more if needed. This came from one small group of students, with one great idea, followed by one email, one afternoon announcement and one tweet. Thank you for raising wonderful children who consistently model generosity and kindness.

This Thanksgiving, I don’t need to look very hard to find life’s blessings...there are 840 of them in this building every day! Enjoy the holiday!

I have good news to report on Assistant Principal, Shana Murray’s back surgery: the procedure went exactly as the surgeon expected and Ms. Murray should be out of the hospital and recovering at home by the weekend. We were very relieved to hear this news and join you in wishing Ms. Murray a speedy recovery.

In Ms. Murray’s absence, Mrs. Holly Coombs will be serving at Interim Assistant Principal. Mrs. Coombs is a seasoned administrative veteran, leading both an elementary and middle school over her career. Most recently, Holly served as the Interim Principal at Wyandot Elementary from January, 2016 to the end of the 2015-16 school year. In just her first week, she has gone out of her way to get to know students and teaching staff. Today, she introduced herself to all of the students during their lunch period and communicated how genuinely excited she is to be their interim assistant principal. I have found Holly to be enthusiastic, student-centered, and a very effective communicator. I am excited to be working alongside Holly and know that you will give her a hearty Celtic welcome when you see her at Grizzell!

Have a wonderful weekend!

It’s a great day to be a Celt! Opportunities abound to participate in winter sports, investment club, math counts, quiz team (coming soon!), art club, the GMS drama club production of “Beauty and the Beast,” chess club, and the music classes’ visit to hear “The Best Darn Band In The Land.” Not only can students get involved in activities at Grizzell, but tomorrow evening at 7:30 the Jerome football team plays host for the first time in the OHSAA Football Regional Tournament. Congratulations Celtics! If your family wants to support the team, please arrive to the game by 7pm to form a FAN tunnel as the team takes the field. Tickets for the game will be on sale at Jerome HS in the main office for $8 until 2 pm Friday but also can be purchased at the gate for $9. The theme is a blackout! Come out! Be loud! Support the Celtic community!

Have a wonderful “fall back” weekend.
