GCMS Middle School

Good morning GCMS Middle School! Today is Tuesday, August 30th.


Would you now please rise and recite the Pledge of Allegiance. 


Students, just a reminder that we are counting tardies this week.  Tardies are counted weekly.  Once you receive your 3rd tardy of the week you will receive a lunch detention.  Tardies reset each week.  From what I have seen, most students are late coming out of PE or a music class.  Please consider how you can eliminate stops at your locker after participating in these classes.  This will give you enough time to make it on time to class.   


The next student council meeting will be this Wednesday at 7:30 AM in Mr. Hoogstraat’s room.  


Girls interested in signing up for basketball: Signups for girls basketball will be on the counter in the office.  Any 6th, 7th, or 8th grade girl interested in going out for basketball should sign-up and take an informational packet.  There will be a girls basketball parent meeting this Wednesday, August 31 at 5:45 PM in our cafeteria.  You may turn in completed athletic forms at this meeting.  


Fall picture day will be this Thursday!  Picture order forms were distributed yesterday.  Students, please make sure you give the order form to your parents so they can order pictures.  


Our baseball and softball teams both played well last night.  The baseball team lost in extra innings to Hoopeston by a score of 3-1.  Our softball team had another dominating performance last night. They beat PBL by a score of 11-0.  Great job ladies!     


Good luck to both baseball and softball teams today. Softball is dismissed at 2:20.  Baseball is dismissed at 3:10.  


Students, please remember to follow our school-wide expectations of Be on Time, Be Prepared, Be Respectful, and Be Safe.    


Thank you and have a fantastic day Falcons!
