From the Principal

Hello everyone! On behalf of the GMS faculty and staff I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for entrusting your child to our care. We are dedicated to making sure your child receives the best middle school experience possible. Our faculty and staff perform their duties and responsibilities to the best of their ability each day with pleasure, but that alone cannot guarantee student success. We need your help in making sure that your child realizes that with maturity comes increased responsibility. The teachers have high expectations for student success and have indicated areas where you can provide assistance. First, please make sure your child attends school every day, for the entire school day, as much as possible. Nothing can replace the direct instruction that the teacher provides each day. Second, your child must take responsibility for learning by completing ALL assignments to the best of his/her ability and by having the assignment readily available during class. Third, your child must attend to the lesson being taught and seek clarification immediately if he/she doesn’t understand any concept. Fourth, your child should develop and utilize effective study skills to include preparing homework each day, preparing for upcoming tests, and reading as much as possible in order to increase reading skills. Finally, your child should participate in extra-curricular activities such as sports or clubs, if possible.  While not all inclusive, we believe the aforementioned responsibilities will definitely promote student success.  We invite you to visit GMS to see all of the wonderful learning experiences taking place. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please give us a call.
