Happy Valentines Day!  


Congratulations to the cast of “Lion King Jr.”  I was able to attend last night’s dress rehearsal and  it was fantastic. The joy that emanated from the theater made my heart full!


Make sure to check out all of the opportunities offered by the DCS.  It’s not too late for parents to put the Literacy Conference on your calendars. The event will take place at Coffman High School on Saturday, February 23rd. 


We are so excited to announce that our Family Session for this year's Dublin Literacy Conference features Hena Khan! Hena Khan is the author of children's books such as Amina's Voice, It's Ramadan, Curious George, and Power Forward. In this session, she will be sharing her journey about becoming an author by finding her own voice. Come get inspired to speak, write, and share your own experiences! This session is free and open to all Dublin City Schools students and families. You can find more information about Hena Khan on her website.

Have a great weekend!

Dear GMS Community:


Wow!  You have really stepped up!  Over the last ten days, the canned goods and dry cereal has been pouring in.  Sixth grade students have collected more than 1300 cans! And, I know the 7th and 8th grade students continue to donate.  Due to the snow days last week, we are extending the drive through Monday, February 11th. If you are like me, I grocery shop on the weekend, and the extension will give everyone one more shopping trip to pick up a little extra, if you haven’t already donated and would like to do so.  Representatives from The Bridge are scheduled to pick up our donations early Tuesday morning. I can’t wait to Tweet to the world about your generosity!


Don’t miss your opportunity TONIGHT to join Columbus State Community College President Dr. David Harrison and Dublin City Schools Superintendent Dr. Todd Hoadley to learn about how parents and students can reduce their higher education expenses. At a time when college costs and accompanying debt are skyrocketing, this Parent University session will provide you with pathways to success at a fraction of the cost. You will learn about Dublin City Schools’ College Credit Plus Program, the needs of the current and future workforce, the Columbus State pathways to two or four year degrees, and professional partnership programs that can lead to fulfilling careers. This free event is open to all parents and students in grades 5-12 and will take place at Jerome High School starting at 7pm   Please consider attending this important event!


Have a great weekend!

PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

Happy snowy Thursday! As the winter concert and sports calendars wind down in early February, our attention begins to focus on scheduling and guidance events.  Please make sure to check out all of the student and family opportunities in late January and early February. As a reminder, The Emerald Campus Open House is this afternoon from 5-8 p.m. and DCS Mathematics resource community information is available this evening at Coffman High School from 6:30-7:30 p.m.


Additional BIG NEWS! The GMS student body will begin a food drive for The Bridge food pantry starting next week.  The Bridge is a volunteer organization that supports working poor on the near west side of Columbus. Its director contacted me this week asking for help. In her words, “The government shutdown is hitting Central Ohio families hard! Can you help us?”  Knowing our community well, I enthusiastically accepted the challenge. Tomorrow morning I will be introducing the drive to our students as part of the morning announcements. At least one teacher from each team will shepherd the drive for his/her students and the staff has already begun planning how to make this drive successful. We need you! Please encourage your son or daughter to get involved.  Specifically, The Bridge needs canned meats, canned soup, canned fruits and vegetables and dry cereal. I have seen how generous you are and I know we will rise to the occasion again. In advance, THANK YOU! I am blessed to be a member of this community!


Have a great weekend!

Dear GMS Community:


Brrr!  Welcome to winter!  I love the change of seasons and the beauty of snow. I hope you and your family have time this weekend to enjoy some skiing, sledding or snowman building.


There are two important events next week to which I want to call your attention. The first is an Open House at Emerald Campus on January 24th from 5-8 p.m.  Current students and teachers will be available to share details about each program offered at Emerald and tours will also be provided. The building is amazing and I encourage all of you to attend. As you may remember, our 8th grade students visited Emerald Campus on January 16th and learned about course options.  The evening Open House is a great way follow-up for parents to get a glimpse of what students experienced this week. It’s never too early to begin considering opportunities for high school!


On the same evening, January 24th, the Department of Curriculum and Instruction will host a Math Community Resource Night in the Coffman High School Media Center from 6:30-7:30 p.m. K-12 parents are invited to hear about the math curriculum review process and have the opportunity to view and provide feedback on the resources being considered for our math classrooms.


We are fortunate to live in a school district that opens its facilities and provides community members opportunity to give feedback.  I hope to see you at one of the events!


Have a great weekend!

Corinne
