GMS NEWS - February 22, 2018


I am looking forward to our canteen tomorrow right after school, 3:15pm-5:30pm.  Thanks to our wonderful PTO, all students will receive a free piece of pizza and a water bottle, have an opportunity to play bingo, and choose to participate in the cakewalk.  Additionally, students can use the selfie wall to have fun with their friends.  As always, ping pong, chess, foosball, and dancing will be available.  

Providing a safe environment for our students to learn and grow is my ultimate goal!  Please take a moment this weekend to check out the Report Bullying/Safety Concerns link on the Dublin City Schools main webpage. This site gives students and parents an opportunity to anonymously report health and safety incidents of any type.  “If you see something, say something” seems like an important motto to live by.  You can also feel free to reach out to me directly if you have a safety concern.  My direct line number is 614-718-8618 and I can be reached via email at

Have a wonderful weekend!

Dear GMS Community,

We are looking forward to our “Furniture Wars” assembly tomorrow, during which May Madness points and team colors are up for grabs!  Thanks to the leadership of Student Council, teams will select their colors based on the finishing order in the “Wars” relay. It should be exciting! 

Following the relay, students will be introduced to how they can earn May Madness points AND contribute to the furniture designs of our updated classrooms.  This is where you can support your child!  One way to earn May Madness points is to visit (see full address below) with your child. Students will bring home a design sheet tomorrow and with your signature, you can help your child’s team! At the same time, you’ll have an opportunity to take a look at the amazing opportunity we have to move GMS ahead of Central Ohio when it comes to classroom design.

One final word about the furniture design contest. Did you know that your place of employment may match any size of donation you make to GMS? The website below lists several companies that will match employee donations. And, even if your place of employment isn’t listed, you might check in with the business to see if it would like to contribute. Any amount is very much appreciated.

If “Furniture Wars” isn’t enough excitement for you, Shrek Jr.  is coming to Grizzell next week.  Please check the school calendar for performance dates.  I can’t wait to see the production.  Students have been working hard everyday after school learning their lines and creating an awesome show.  I hope to see you at the Abbey Theater!

The Grizzell Furniture Wars are coming! On Friday, February 9th, GMS will kick off May Madness with an assembly featuring an introduction to our school wide Classroom Furniture Design contest. Historically May Madness has featured teams competing in a “Crazy Relay” which involved shooting baskets, scooter races, hockey pucks and much more.  This year, the Crazy Relay has evolved into Furniture Wars, a relay race focused on the use of classroom “furniture.” Students will push each other on chairs with wheels, race on bouncy balls like in Mr. Wadenstierna’s room, and several other crazy tasks. All of this fun is designed to get kids excited about our furniture fundraiser and to earn May Madness points.

Ask your son or daughter about the classroom furniture design contest, the furniture scavenger hunt, and how they can earn May Madness points for their academic teams. Hint: They need you!!!  Have a wonderful weekend!
