GCMS Families, A couple of announcements for the coming week. Friday, November 4th is an 11:30 dismissal please arrange accordingly for your children. Monday, November 7th is a fall holiday with no school, and Tuesday, November 8th is Election Day with no school. Tomorrow, Wednesday, November 2 we will be gathering our middle and high school students for a brief photo opportunity with local media to celebrate the Exemplary Status designations of our Middle and High schools. 8 schools out of 127 in the News Gazette circulation area achieved this status and GCMS is the only school district with two schools. We are very proud of the entire system for working very hard to best serve our students and community. We share this for both celebration and awareness for those who may see our kids transitioning. Thank you for your attention. Sincerely, Mr. Darnell

Good afternoon high school parents, Our teachers all have policies that allow students to take advantage of reteach/retakes for assessments. If your student is struggling in a class, this will allow him/her the opportunity to improve his/her grades on assessments. We encourage our students to take advantage of all opportunities we provide to show improvement and understanding of the content. You can also reach out to specific teachers if you have questions on the policies. We also have a tutor available during the day Tuesdays and Thursdays that students can take advantage of during their study halls. Yours in education, Mr. Bielfeldt
