January is School Board Appreciation Month. We are blessed to have board members who put the needs of our students first. If you see them let them know how much you appreciate them!

Report cards will be going out late due to the weather over the past couple of days. Students will receive their report cards no later than Monday, 1/22.

After school tutorials will be held every Tuesday and Thursday from 3:30 to 4:15. Transportation is provided for students who need it and have returned their forms signed by parents.

About GSMS:

Our Campus Mission Statement:
"We believe our students at GSMS will achieve 
GREATNESS and CHANGE THE WORLD. This will be done through the gift of teaching to inspire our students to discover and develop their talents. We encourage community support throughout their educational journey."

Tutorials are available every day at 7:45 - 8:00 am and Tuesday and Thursday from 3:30 - 4:30 pm.

Library books Every student is expected to check out a library book. In order to encourage reading fluency, upon arrival to the gym in the morning, students will read until tutorials begin. Students should be reading at home at least 10 minutes per/night. We also encourage students to record books they read to go toward the "40 Book Challenge"!

Student Leadership: 
Our Student Led Conferences (SLC) are design to prepare our students for the real world and hold them accountable for their progress. Students are required to lead and present information about their successes for no more than 15 minutes to a panel of adult staff members and parents. Students will be trained on how to conduct the SLC using their Leadership Notebooks. Parents are encouraged to attend their child's conference. This year SLCs will be March 27-29th. All students that are absent and/or not able to successfully complete their SLC will have a rescheduled date later in the year

Our amazing students do community service in our city. We believe that serving the community is a vital part of learning leadership. The students and faculty work very hard for two days to give a fresh look to the facility.
