Thank you for wonderful school year. For those of you moving on to another school community, it has been a pleasure serving your family as Principal. For everyone returning, have a great summer and see you on August 8th for our “Back to School” day!

Speaking of back to school, please see the message below from the district office.

You will be directed to a webpage with specific directions and links to the sites you will need to access prior to the start of school (August 15) and throughout the 2018-19 school year.

GMS NEWS - May 17, 2018


It has been a true pleasure serving as your Principal this school year.  Although we are ready for the relaxation summer holiday will provide, the end of a school year always makes me nostalgic. I enjoy building relationships with students and families during their time at GMS and I recognize that when June arrives, my opportunity to interact with one-third of our community has come to an end. Please know that if you are moving on to Jerome  OR outside of the Dublin City Schools, you will always be welcome here. And, if you’re returning to GMS in August, I will be super excited to get our 2018-19 school year started. 

As we look ahead to the 2018-19 school year, I want to alert you to change in our summer mailer. Alongside Jerome High School, we have decided to make our summer mailer 100% digital. Please look for an email from me in mid to late July that directs you to several web based forms, athletic information, picture forms, etc.  If you need paper copies of any of the forms, please contact me at 614-718-8618. We will have a limited number of forms available in the main office throughout the summer. I also want to encourage you to take advantage of the PTO supply sale. It is the only fund raiser and the primary funding source for being able to provide activities, food, and fun to our students throughout the school year. Details on ordering are listed below.

Have a wonderful weekend!


GMS NEWS - May 10, 2018


It’s an exciting day at GMS!  The 8th grade students are competing in their May Madness preliminary competitions this morning and at lunch time; our incoming 6th grade students and their families will be touring the building starting at 5:30pm; the art show begins at 6pm; and, we culminate our day with a band concert which begins at 7:30pm.  

The fun doesn’t end today! Tomorrow from 3:15-5:30 p.m., May Madness Finals take place in the gym. The competition is closer this year than I recall in my tenure so tomorrow’s finals will determine the 2018 GMS May Madness winner. PTO is providing FREE pizza and water to all students in attendance and please know that you and future GMS students are invited to enjoy the fun. One final note about May Madness...students who stay after school to participate or spectate will be asked to stay in the building until the conclusion of the event, unless a  parent is picking up in the front parking lots. Students who plan on walking home may leave at 5 p.m. Thank you in advance for your support with this safety measure.

Have a wonderful weekend!


GMS NEWS - May 3, 2018


As we enter May, announcements for Fall sports, 2018 will begin coming your way.  If your son or daughter is interested in trying out for a fall sport, please register him/her on FinalForms, an online forms and data management service used by the Dublin City Schools’ MS and HS Athletic Departments. On the FinalForms website, you will be able to complete all paperwork electronically as well as access important try out, meeting and competition dates.  Please visit the website below to register.


I’m looking forward to seeing many of you over the next week at May Madness events (May 4-May 11) and at our Art Show on May 10th, 6-7:30pm.  The art show will feature creations from ALL students who were enrolled in art this school year. Our students have amazing talent and if you haven’t attended in years past, I highly encourage you to stop by and browse the displays.   You will not believe the pieces were created by 11, 12, and 13 year olds!

In addition to having an opportunity to view the beautiful student work,  families can also grab a snack or dinner from food trucks located in the parking lot during the event. Sounds like a great night to me!  See you there.
