PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

I hope to see our entire student body at the Celtic Connections sponsored “Spring Fling” tomorrow after school on the football field. The event begins at 3:15pm and concludes at 5pm. Student activities include hamster ball races, sumo suit battles, inflatable boxing gloves and a wipeout course. Admission is covered with your activity pass or $3. Tickets for will be sold for $1 each during lunches starting Thursday (or at the event). Games and snacks will cost 1-3 tickets. Add in the food, snacks, music and fun times with friends and it doesn’t get much better!

Raising awareness to healthy relationships and making healthy physical and emotional choices is one of the primary goals of the Celtic Connections group. Alongside the Celtic Connections sponsored Spring Fling, our 8th grade students have initiated an opportunity to call attention to the wonderful work of Choices, a Central Ohio shelter for battered women and children. A portion of the proceeds from Spring Fling will be donated to Choices. Also, a representative from the organization will be attending to answer questions and provide information. Please ask your son or daughter to find out more about how your family may be able to support Choices. Finally, and also part of the grade 8 student initiative, please see the opportunity below for moms and daughters to enroll in a self- defense class. I hope to see you there!

PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

Congratulations to our band, choir, and orchestras for their outstanding performances at the recent Cedar Point Music Festival. All three groups earned “Superior” ratings and equally impressive was their “Espirit de Corps” designation awarded to the combined band/choir/orchestra with the most team spirit. The Grizzell community was always aware of our excellent performing arts program, but now the entire State of Ohio has seen the results of all their hard work and preparation. Even if your child isn’t a member of one of these three groups, please consider joining us as they perform in their spring concerts throughout the month of May.

It is isn’t just performing arts at which GMS students excel! Please join us for the art show through May 26th. Mrs. Beard and Mr. Arnold have hung hundreds of beautiful pieces in our commons and main hallway and every piece shows awesome effort and creativity! We have designated May 24th, 6-7:30 p.m., as a special day to showcase the work of our visual arts students. MoJo Eats, Explorer’s Club, and Kona Ice food trucks will be in the GMS parking lot for the entire show, and I hope you and your family can join in the fun for the evening.

Have a wonderful weekend!

PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

It’s May! Wow! Our year is flying by. Although it would be natural for the students and staff to begin the transition toward summer, quite the opposite is happening within the walls of GMS. Today kicks off the student art show in the commons and main hallway. Beautiful pieces prepared by nearly every Grizzell student will be on display through May 26th. Please arrive early to the band, choir, and orchestra concerts over the coming weeks to enjoy the hard work of our students.

Earlier this week, our students and staff participated in “Bowties for Brandon,” a community service project designed to raise awareness to the dangers of drunk driving and to making healthy life choices. Please check out @gmsDCSD to see all of the students in their bowties. I would also encourage you to ask your child about the #bowtiesforbrandon initiative.

During the week of May 20th, Celtic Connections will be holding its Spring Fling. Although the event is designed for student fun, there will also be a service component. Many of our 8th grade students are working alongside Celtic Connections and the Principal’s Advisory Council to raise awareness about healthy relationships. Students who donate their entrance tickets to the Spring Fling will contribute to the a Grizzell Middle School gift to Choices, an organization that provides temporary shelter for battered women and children of Central Ohio. Additionally, the same 8th student group suggested the idea of hosting a self-defense class, here at GMS. Please note the sign-up information for this opportunity later in the newsletter. This is just another example of our student body’s service-oriented attitude. I couldn’t be more proud!

Finally, speaking of service. I want to give a special “Thank You” to Lauren Menning and Kim Podobinski. They have chaired the PTO hospitality committee for the last four years and have provided many delicious meals and treats to show appreciation for our wonderful teachers. Thank you Lauren and Kim for your service and for your creativity. You are very appreciated!

Have a great day!

GMS NEWS - April 28, 2016

PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

By the time you receive this email, our guidance counselors, teaching faculty, and administrative assistants will have coordinated and administered over 4,500 AIR tests over the last three weeks. The amount of forethought, organization, and attention to detail that it takes to successfully accomplish this is significant! Although the process could be a full time job for many, our staff continued to teach students, support students and parents and have collegial conversations about how to best meet the academic and emotional needs of our 850 GMS students. I appreciate their work ethic and their devotion!

I would also like to recognize the 7th grade Celtic Connections students and staff for their leadership in organizing “No Tech Wednesday” on April 20. Several students approached me in March and asked to identify one day in April on which 7th grade students would mix up their lunch table seating and pledge to leave their phones or other personal electronic devices in their lockers. Although students were a bit hesitant last week, once they were given their new seats for the day, they quickly engaged in conversation and table games such as “Would You Rather” and “Two Truths and a Lie.” The feedback I received from our student leaders was that they enjoyed the opportunity to get to know someone who may have been an acquaintance and that they would like to repeat the day once a month for their 8th grade year. I think that is a great idea, and consequently, the Principal’s Advisory Council and Celtic Connections will continue to explore how to make a monthly “No Tech” day a reality for all three grade levels next year.

Finally, please take the time to scan through the announcements listed below. There are many opportunities for students and families over the coming months and our newsletter is a great way to be connected to Grizzell and the greater Dublin community.

Have a great day!
