Good Evening GMS Families.
I hope you all stayed warm on our first snow day of the year. Many of you have contacted the school and are asking when we return to school will it be a Day 1 or a Day 2. Our Day 1 Day 2 calendar never changes. Please refer to the link in the email associated with this message for a copy of the Day 1 Day 2 Calendar. The calendar can also be found in your student’s agenda book. Check the calendar to determine which classes will be taking place when we return to school.
Please also review and print our Alternate Bell Schedules. If games or events are rescheduled due to inclement weather new dates and times can be found on our school website, Twitter, Schoology or through School Messenger. Students will also be notified through Schoology as well over announcements when they return to school of any schedule changes or cancellations. If schools are closed then all after school activities will be canceled. Our goal is to keep you informed to help you plan accordingly.
We hope to see you this coming week at our grade level awards assemblies:
- 8th Grade – Wednesday, January 10 from 9:45 – 10:30am
- 7th Grade – Thursday. January 11 from 9:45 – 10:30am
- 6th Grade – Friday, January 12 from 9:45 – 10:30am
During the assembly we will celebrate the accomplishments of our students for the first semester. Students recognized will be those on A/B honor roll, Principal List which are students who received straight A’s, fall & winter athletics, as well as all fall & winter extra-curricular activities. Awards assemblies will take place during Eagle Block. A copy of our January Calendar of events is located in the email associated with this message.
It’s now time to discuss course offerings for the next school year! Please review the GCPS course offerings letter in the email associated with this message. It has valuable information regarding guidelines that you will want to consider when choosing your students classes for the 2018-2019 school year. A hard copy of the letter will go home with your student on Monday.
Finally, report cards will be distributed Wednesday. Grades are final and can be access in PowerSchool.
Thank you for your attention to this message.
We hope you have a wonderful & warm evening!
