Dear GMS Community,
Wow! What a great first week of school! We started our year off yesterday by welcoming students with signs and cheers as they entered the building. The entire teaching faculty and GMS support staff are so pleased that the kids are back, and I hope they felt our enthusiasm as we welcomed them yesterday. As in years past, we are committed to each student’s academic growth, but we want each child to know that we are also committed to his/her emotional well-being. Every student matters at GMS!
We will end our week tomorrow with a “Welcome Back” assembly during which students will enjoy entertaining teacher introductions and learn about our theme for the year, #HME. You may remember that last year John Denver’s song, “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” became the GMS unofficial theme song and we are capitalizing on its momentum. Look for #HME in our tweets and for signs hanging throughout the building! We hope to emulate the Notre Dame tradition of “Play Like A Champion” and your encouragement will call attention to our efforts. #HME!
Mark your calendars for Open House on Thursday, August 22nd. The event will begin for all grades at 6pm and will conclude by 8pm. Parents are invited to walk their child’s schedule (look for this early next week) and briefly meet with each teacher. As you are probably imagining, parking will be a challenge. PLEASE consider carpooling with neighbors or walking if you live close.
Have a great weekend!
Dear GMS Community,
It was great to see so many of you at "Back To School" day yesterday. If you didn't have a chance to attend, please feel free to stop by the school between 7:30AM and 4PM Friday, Monday, or Tuesday to practice locker combinations, decorate the inside of lockers (no self stick wallpaper please), walk a schedule, or check in with a guidance counselor. Pre-ordered school supplies are also available for pick up in the main office.
The entire GMS faculty is looking forward to our first day of school on Wednesday, August 14. We hope you are too!
Welcome to Grizzell Middle School! We hope you have had a fun summer making memories and taking the time to relax and visit with those important to you. As you know, the start of school is just around the corner. We have planned several events and worked very hard in preparation for the new school year. I’d like to call your attention to the checklist at the bottom of this message. Completion of the items on this checklist is paramount in making the transition back to school as smooth as possible. For your convenience, we have provided links to the action items that are required at the beginning of each school year.
