Where did the year go? Although it flew past, 2018-19 was amazing! Thank you for all of your support, encouraging your son or daughter, volunteering at school events, and donating food for students and staff. I appreciate all you‘ve done and look forward to working together in coming years! If your child is moving on to High School, please don’t be a stranger. Grizzell will always be your middle school home.
Although we are a few days from the end of this school year, please mark your calendars for late July and early August. You should receive the summer email on or around Monday, July 29th. Included in it will be several important notes/tasks for the beginning of 2019-20. Additionally, August 7th is “Back To School” day, where 7th & 8th grade students can pick up their school supplies (Don’t forget to order by June 30th - see link below), get their photos taken, walk their schedules, and decorate lockers from 1-4 p.m.
Finally, thank you to the many families who loaned corn hole and Kan Jam sets AND volunteered to make May Madness a huge success. Please stop by the main office to pick up the games you loaned us today or tomorrow. Thank you.
Have a great summer and Go Celts!
Dear GMS Community,

Students can participate or spectate in the following events: volleyball, basketball, dodgeball, KanJam, Corn Hole, Hula Hoop, Pie Eating, Ping Pong, Capture the Flag, Chess, and board games. There is truly something for every student.
Thank you to all of the parent volunteers who gave up time to make May Madness happen. A special shout out goes to Scott Kilgren and Leslie Ungerott who chaired the May Madness committee. Thank you to all!
If your schedule allows, please join Junior Teen Institute (JTI) for a club fair on the track this afternoon at 3:30pm. Tables and information for many of the GMS clubs as well as snacks and games will be available. The event is free!
Have a great weekend!

Thank you to our PTO May Madness chairs, Scott Kilgren, Leslie Ungerott, and Beth Krenzel for all of their hard work organizing the fun event!
