Dear Parents:

I’m looking forward to our first canteen this evening!  It is hosted by our athletic department and begins at 7pm.  Cost of attendance is $3 unless your child has an athletic family pass which admits him/her into all athletic events at no charge.

Candy, snacks, and drinks will be available for $1. Students also have opportunity to enjoy music, ping pong, and foosball.  Pick up for the dance begins at 8:45pm. If you need to pick up prior to that time, I will escort your son or daughter to the car to ensure his/her safety.

Have a great weekend!


GMS NEWS - September 13, 2018

It’s another BIG Friday Night Football event at DJHS!  Please see the details below and make sure to RSVP by 5pm this evening for the tailgate.  Organizers want to make sure they have ample PIZZA for those in attendance.

Supporting community is a theme this month at Grizzell.  Our Celtic Connections group met this morning and planned a school wide (stay tuned for more details) activity for later this month; Celtic Knot is meeting Monday morning and will strategize about the “Start with Hello” initiative in late September, and Ms. Murray and Officer Burks begin their digital citizenship presentations today.  By the end of next week, 100% of GMS students will have participated in this important program. Being kind and encouraging a positive community is goal #1! Thank you for supporting this core value both inside and outside the walls of Grizzell Middle School.

Parents are an important part of our school community.  Recently, several parents have reached out for support with Schoology.  Our wonderful technology support coaches immediately directed me to the following resources:

If you need additional support, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Have a wonderful weekend and I will see you at the Jerome HC parade and tailgate.  Go Celts!


GMS NEWS -September 6, 2018


I hope to see everyone at the Jerome vs. Coffman football game tomorrow night at Jerome High School.  This promises to be a fun night with both communities coming together to cheer on their respective schools and collectively supporting the athletic talent at these schools.  If you haven’t already purchased your tickets, they will be available at Jerome during student lunches from 11:30 am - 1 pm or purchase online here

Speaking of talent, please be sure to come early to watch your 8th Grade Celtic Band members participate in the pre-game performance and to ensure you can get through the gates in time to see them!  My understanding is the high school student section has deemed tomorrow as a white out, so feel free to wear white or your green and gold Celtic spiritwear!

On a similar note, next week is the Jerome Homecoming.  Mark your calendars so you won’t miss the parade which starts at 5 p.m. at Indian Run United Methodist Church immediately followed by a tailgate for Grizzell and Karrer students and the game at 7 p.m.

Go Celts!


GMS NEWS - August 30, 2018

It was great seeing so many of your at Open House on Tuesday evening. Our students are fortunate to have such caring, supportive families.  If you were unable to attend, please check out each teacher’s Schoology page and the GMS webpage. Both sites house teacher contact information as well as whole school announcements.

As we settle into new fall routines, I want to call your attention to a new policy at Jerome home football games. Middle School students are asked to leave footballs and water bottles at home.  If either are brought to the game, they will be collected at the main gate for safekeeping and can be picked up at the end of the game. Thank you in advance for your support of this new protocol.

Finally, if your child is in 7th or 8th grade, he/she will be enrolled in Health during the 2018-19 school year. Please see the information attached about the Signs of Suicide (SOS) program.   If you would prefer that your child opt of this curriculum, please contact me or your child’s guidance counselor. Students enrolled in first trimester health will begin SOS on September 12th.  

Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
