GMS NEWS - October 20, 2016


Good morning GMS community! Although the weather is not inviting on the outside of our walls, the learning opportunities within our classrooms are fully engaging our students. Just this morning I observed students collaborating, solving problems, and creating solutions. It’s a great day to be a Celtic student.

Next week is spirit week at GMS. Students will be celebrating Red Ribbon Week, a Jr. Teen Institute initiative, and learning about making positive lifestyle choices as well as participating in different costume days Monday-Friday. The designated costume for each day is listed below. Students will have an opportunity to begin collecting March Madness “Spirit Points” based on the number of participants from each team. Please encourage your child to enjoy the special activities and get involved in the fun!

The week will culminate with the “Thriller Dance” on Friday, October 28th from 7pm-9pm. Students are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes to the dance and support Student Council’s fundraising efforts to raise money for the Pelotonia Foundation. I am looking forward to wearing my “GO VOTE” costume and joining the office staff in our effort to be judged “Best Team of Teachers” in the costume contest.

Have a great weekend!


GMS NEWS - October 6, 2016


It is difficult to believe we are approaching the end of the first quarter.  Fall sports are finishing up, 6th grade students are getting ready to go to Camp Heartland, and the 8th graders are in the final preparation for their Washington DC trip.  In the midst, our students and teachers continue to engage in their teaching and learning, give their full effort, and stay positive.  It’s amazing how much a group of motivated people can accomplish when they put their minds to it!

The end of the quarter also signals that the first round of parent conferences are upcoming (November 3rd and November 10th). If you would like to conference with your child’s teachers, please contact Kristin Huber at 614-718-8613 or huber_kristin@dublinschools.net to schedule a 15 minute conference. If by chance, all conferences times fill up, we will certainly accommodate families before school or during teachers’ conference periods on another day. We welcome your input and fully believe children thrive when teachers and parents partner together in educating the “whole” child.

Although I will be out of the office next week traveling with the Grade 8 students, I will check email and voicemail regularly.  If you have an urgent need, please contact Shana Murray at 614-718-8619 or murray_shana@dublinschools.net.

Good luck to the football, cross country, and volleyball teams as they finish their seasons this weekend.  Go Celts!

GMS NEWS - September 29, 2016


It’s an exciting weekend for the Jerome and Grizzell communities. Tomorrow is the homecoming parade, starting at 5:30 p.m. along Brand road between Avery Road and the DJHS student parking lot. Following the parade, families can join the DJHS Football Boosters in a family tailgate. The boosters are providing food, drinks, and fun for those in attendance. Make sure to RSVP by clicking on the link below so the boosters can get an accurate headcount for food. Please note that the link I provided last week was incorrect. If you completed an RSVP with this link, please repeat the process with the link below. I apologize for any inconvenience this causes.


6th grade camp and the 8th grade Washington DC trip are also around the corner. If your child is participating in either of these events, please look for information from his/her team leader in the coming week. Feel free to contact me at 614-718-8618 if you have questions. I also know that Mrs. Jesenovec (6-1), Mrs. Nickel (6-2), Mrs. Raybould (8-1) and Ms. Garrity (8-2) also welcome your questions. Parents of Grade 8 students, please make sure to note the changes in drop off procedures from previous years. Thank you in advance for your support with this change.

Finally, I’d like to give a special shout out to our Grade 7 students and parents! The transition to Schoology has been smooth for all grade levels, but it has been especially effective this year for our 7th graders. I know you are all working hard getting to know this new learning management system, and your hard work is paying off!

Have a wonderful weekend!



Greetings Celtic families! Getting involved in school activities or clubs is a great way to meet new friends and keep attendance and achievement high! Please remind your child to listen to announcements and to check the school calendar for club meetings.

This week, we had our first meeting of Junior Teen Institute (JrTI), a nationwide organization that promotes healthy lifestyle choices for middle school students. If you have questions about how to join JrTI, please don’t hesitate to contact me or the group’s leader, Mrs. Amber Yuen.

Another opportunity for a club just getting underway is the Yearbook Club. If your child has an interest in photography, yearbook club might be for them! The first meeting is Wednesday, October 5th in room 116 with Mrs. Beard from 3:15-3:45. There is no cost. Interested students should come to the meeting learn more!

I also want to call your attention to two (2) school wide events scheduled within the next week. Tomorrow evening, the GMS athletic department is sponsoring the first canteen/dance of the year. Students can enter for free with an activity pass sticker or they may pay $3 at the door. We hope to see a HUGE student turnout!

Also, DJHS Football Boosters are partnering up with feeder schools for a family tailgate at home FB games this fall. Grizzell night is next FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30th. Come support all the GMS fall sports teams in the homecoming parade at 5:30 pm, attend the tailgate, and get a glimpse into some of the fun high school has to offer! If you cannot make it Friday, you are always welcome to attend any home tailgate during the season. Jerome FB boosters provide food, drinks, and fun for those in attendance. Please make sure to RSVP by clicking on the link below so the boosters can get an accurate headcount for food.
