GMS New Spirit Wear Items
Hey parents, we have new Spirit Wear items and you can find them buy them in the following website: https://squareup.com/store/gms-spirit-wear. With the weather changing there are many options for the kids.
Chromebooks should be put into lockers during lunch and PE.
Chromebooks should NOT be use during breakfast.
Students should NOT borrow or use another students chromebook.
If a student says their chromebook is missing they should check with their 1st period teacher first and then go back through their schedule to try and find it. If they can’t find the chromebook then they should go to the media center to report it. If a student goes to the media center to report it missing and then it is found the period 1 teacher needs to send an email so it can be removed from the missing list.
If a chromebook is damaged the student should take the chromebook to the media center to Ms. Tanner and she will create a unicenter ticket.
GMStrong for October
Our GMStrong theme for October is healthy activities. Throughout the month staff and students will discuss and participate in healthy activities. During all lunches, one row of tables in the café will be allowed to eat their lunch outside in the courtyard and then play soccer and football in the courtyard. Each day a different row of tables will be given this opportunity. This will continue for the month of October.
