GMS NEWS - APRIL 6, 2017


It’s dodgeball week!  GMS will be sending 3 teams to the event on Friday evening.  Games begin in the main gym at Scioto HS at 7pm.  Please consider attending this fun community event.  Admission is only $5 and all profits go to the Nick Rozanski Memorial Foundation, Welcome Warehouse, and The Driven Foundation. Tournament brackets are posted on the District’s website,

Continued “Thank You” for having your child at school on time for AIR tests.  Students begin the mathematics test next week.  Please see the calendar below for your child’s testing dates.

I’m looking forward to hosting our annual “5th Grade Family Night” on Tuesday, April 18th.  If you have a child who will be coming to 6th grade next year, please join us and please spread the word to your friends and neighbors who have incoming students. We have tours planned, a short presentation about a typical day in middle schools, an opportunity to practice opening a locker, and an opportunity to go through the lunch line and enter ID numbers.  It should be a great night!

Have a wonderful weekend!



Please make note of the dates below for the AIR standardized tests.  If at all possible, please try to avoid scheduling appointments for your child on these particular dates.
