Greetings from Washington DC! The 8th grade students are enjoying their trip and are safe. We get compliments everywhere we go about how polite the students are. Thank you for sending such wonderful young people to GMS.
Our entire school is looking forward to the Thriller Dance next week. Students are permitted to wear their Trick or Treat costumes on the 31st. We appreciate your support as students choose their school appropriate costumes.
The Thriller event begins at 1 pm. Popcorn, water, and candy will be available for all. Students can enjoy a DJ, Bingo, games, and a photo booth. Sounds like FUN to me!
To additionally celebrate Halloween, Student Council is sponsoring a Spirit Week. See each day’s designated apparel listed below.
Have a wonderful weekend!
