Dear GMS Community:
By now I am sure you have seen our Profile of a Graduate banner hanging at the front door. Students are building skills and knowledge in all of their classes and as a school community we are focusing on one habit of the Profile each month. During December, students will be encouraged to show mutual respect. In an effort to emphasize the importance of this habit, we are thrilled to welcome Mr. Brett Bohl who will speak to our students this afternoon about respecting one another as well as appreciating our differences and similarities. Brett is a member of the Grizzell community. His children both attended Grizzell and he is familiar with the many challenges our students face. I hope you have an opportunity this weekend to discuss Brett’s message with your child. I’m confident you will be pleased and impressed by the positive message that was delivered.
Finally, I’d like to remind families of the opportunity to support Junior Teen Institute’s holiday giving project. They have adopted five (5) families and are seeking monetary donations as well as gift cards to Walmart and Target to assist in the shopping. If you prefer, checks can be made payable to Grizzell Middle School. Encourage your child to “earn” the money by helping out with some chores at home or by helping a family member or neighbor. Our goal is $750 and a $1 donation from every student helps JTI to exceed this lofty goal. The original end date for this initiative was today, but we are significantly below our goal in donations, so we have extended the deadline to Wednesday. If you are able to donate, I am positive it will be very appreciated by one of the families our students have adopted.
Thank you for your continued support and for raising such amazing kids!
