GMS NEWS - November 17, 2017


I am thrilled to announce that our PTO is ready to begin their fundraising efforts to update and overhaul our classroom furniture. Educators have learned from the field of neuroscience that students learn best in spaces that provide natural opportunities for collaboration and creative problem solving, while also comfortable.  Let’s face it, hard plastic and metal desks certainly aren’t comfortable and probably don’t lend themselves to innovative thinking.

Keep a close eye out for more information about how you can contribute to outfitting GMS classrooms so that our students have the best opportunity to maximize their learning potential.  In order to whet your appetite for more about how you can support this important PTO initiative, I’ll leave you with a tease….it only takes four fives!

Speaking of appetites...Thanksgiving is just around the corner!  Whether you are hunkering down in Central Ohio or heading “over the river and through the woods,” I hope you have a wonderful time with family and friends.

Have a wonderful weekend!



Just in time for holiday gift giving, the PTO has put together another online store for all your GMS Celtic Spirit Wear needs!  Store is open through November 27th and items will be delivered 2 weeks after.  See the attached flier for samples.  Click on the link to browse and purchase. Once again, proceeds benefit the GMS PTO.



Dublin Jerome is hosting their Annual Holiday Bazaar on Saturday, December 2, 10 am - 3 pm, featuring more than 100 vendors offering handcrafted items such as jewelry, winter essentials like scarves, hats, and blankets, holiday decor, household items, dolls, doll clothes, fresh baked goods, really interesting and unique finds!  We also have vendors of specialty retailers, such as LipSense, LuluRoe, EVER SkinCare, Initial Outfitters, etc. The vendors work hard all year preparing for this special event!
