5th Gr Parents: Just another reminder about Band Registration Night coming up. Wed Sep 22 from 4p-8p in the Elem Music Room. This is the night you officially sign up for Band. I've met w/ each class to talk about instruments & answer students' questions. It's been going well! There are several benefits to studying music, the primary being your student will enjoy all aspects of music (and life) to a higher degree. I hope your student considers joining! Full details are in the intro letter (attached). Email is the best way to reach me (Renchen.Kyle@gcmsk12.org). I'm happy to answer questions & I look forward to meeting you! https://bit.ly/3A5lWQ7

Dear Middle School Parents/Guardians, The Gibson Area Food Pantry has developed a backpack program which will be providing nutritional food items to supplement weekend meals for qualifying GCMS students. The program's goal is to provide children with nutritious food items that can be prepared and served throughout the weekend. Food items will be placed in your child’s locker on the selected dates (which will be the weeks that the Gibson Area Food Pantry @ 619 E. 1st Street is not open for distribution). We are inviting your family to participate in the program if you are interested. One bag of food will be distributed per family not per child. If you are interested in participating in this program, please have your child pick up a sign up packet in the office or contact the middle school office for details. Thank you, Mr. Bielfeldt
