GDRMS Weekly News – January 25

Greetings from the Middle School!

Report Cards‘ are ready in School Brain – we will not be sending paper copies, but here’s some guidance on how to see your child(ren)’s grades: Screen Shot 1 , Screen Shot 2 . Please keep in mind, that any student with 2 or more ‘F’ grades for the end of year grades will be in danger of being retained.

Bus #12 is full, we cannot accommodate any more riders on this bus. So, we will not accept any notes for temporary ridership.

Morning Drop Off – thank you so much to the roughly 97 drivers that are following our drop off procedures and dropping students in the back of the North building in the mornings. This has been running very smoothly. We allow riders out of cars at 7:57 and generally by 8:04 most of the cars have cycled through. Please do not drop students off in the parking lot or near the South building.

News from our nurses: Attention current 6th grade parents: Please review attached letter that discusses the Physical exam and immunization requirements for entry into 7th grade. Grade 6 Physicals

We held our annual National Geographic ‘Geo-Bee’ on Thursday, January 24th. Every student in the school took part in classroom/grade level competitions to determine the 10 finalists to sit on the stage in front of the student body. The Bee was very exciting and here are the results: 7th place – Sean S; tied for 6th place – Cullen C and Colby M; tied for 5th place – Alexa G, Anthony P and Josh B; 4th place – Shreya S; 3rd place – Liam M; 2nd place – Thomas C; 1st place – Will G. Our first place winner will now take a written exam to determine if he can return to the State level competition for the second year in a row….good luck Will!

PRIDE – Positivity: Demonstrate open-mindedness, appreciate and support diverse thinking, possess a positive attitude and willingness to learn.

Wishing you an enjoyable weekend!
