GCMS Family, Less than a week until we kick off the 2022-2023 school year. 78,750 minutes, that is how much time our kids and staff will have in the 2022-2023 school year to do great things. Amazingly enough that is just 15% of a calendar year. Our goal for this year is to maximize that 15% for teaching, learning, and growth. We look forward to partnering with students, families, staff, and the community to make this school year a great experience for all. Wednesday, August 17 8:15 am the bell sounds to start the year! Can’t wait! Falcon Proud! Mr. Darnell

GCMS Families, Yesterday was the requested deadline for completing online registration. We are very thankful for the 75% of our families who have completed the process. On July 18th Mr. Willis sent out the links to engage in this process and we are just two weeks away from the first day all of our children will start the 2022-2023 school year. If you have not completed registration we need this done as soon as possible. The first few days of school are exciting and busy and we want to ensure a great experience for all. Please check your emails for the invitation to register and get those completed. We are ramping up to have your students for 78,750 minutes this school year and we want to make each one the best we can! Sincerely, Mr. Darnell
