Good Afternoon GDRMS Community!
Loaves and Fishes – Thank you for your December donation to Loaves and Fishes last Friday. The Student Council and Peace Club collected 199.7 pounds of food for the pantry. Our next Spirit Day and food collection will be on February 7th.
News from our Health Office – On January 8th, our district Nurse Practitioner, Karen Balestrieri, from Pediatrics West will be coming to the Middle School to complete postural screening for absent students, and postural re-screens following the initial screening completed earlier this month. The health offices are coordinating this service and the screenings will take place in the health offices.
Ski Club – If your child is signed up for Ski Club [1/7 – 2/11/20], please plan to drop each club member off in the following manner: Drive to the right of the South building, around the back of the South building and drop your child and equipment off along the side of the south building (along the parking lot and baseball field). A staff member will have the side door open so that all equipment may be stored in the ‘Green Room’ backstage area for those six Tuesdays.
News from our Speech & Language Department: Social Skills Newsletter
As we approach our winter break, I am aware of the many things we, as a school, have to be grateful for. I am thankful for each student that is here, for the joy he/she brings and for his/her eagerness to learn. I am thankful for the family and community support provided to our school. I am thankful for each staff member for his/her commitment to engage each child to succeed. Thank you for the part you play to make Groton Dunstable Regional Middle School a wonderful place to learn and grow. From our faculty to your homes, we wish you a joyful break, celebrated in a way that is meaningful to you and your family. We are looking forward to your child’s safe return on Monday, January 6, 2020.
PRIDE Positivity: Demonstrate open-mindedness. Be accepting and support diverse thinking. Have a willingness to learn.
