GCMS Families, As we approach a potential snow event I wanted to take a few moments to clarify expectations going into a potential E-learning (snow day). The "first snow day" is in fact an e-learning day but we also want to balance the expectations of kids so that they can enjoy the feelings of a more traditional "snow day." The expectations of our E-learning days vary from grade level to grade level and subject to subject. Teaching staff will be digitally accessible throughout the day to assist students in a continuation of learning. We ask that students and families engage in the age appropriate lessons as best they can while managing their own circumstance. Individual building expectations and schedules will be shared through our website and social media platforms. Decisions for in person attendance will be made as soon as possible based on weather and road conditions. We hope to see everyone tomorrow, but wanted everyone to be prepared if we are unable to be in person. If you have questions please communicate directly with you child's teacher or building. Announcements for closure will be posted on the GCMS Website, social media accounts, and sent via text message in the morning if the situation necessitates it. Stay safe and warm! Mr. Darnell

The Middle School kicked off Mix It Up Mondays at lunch today. Students are encouraged to Mix It Up by sitting with new and different people. This gives students an opportunity to practice being inclusive classmates, which is the SEL theme for the 3rd quarter. Today, students were encouraged to sit at tables by their birth month. 8th graders led discussions based on question prompts provided. This will change each Monday.
