6th Grade Transition Night Information
When asked about what she is looking forward to at GCMS, our new second grade teacher, Mrs. Anna Denault exclaimed: "I loved student teaching at GCMS & I’m excited to plant my roots in a school that feels like home to me already!"We are so excited to welcome you to your new home, Mrs. Denault! In her free time, Mrs. Denault enjoys decorating her house, reading books, and spending time outside. Her favorite book to read to students is "The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind" but she personally loves to read any good thriller that is a page-turner. Mrs. Denault LOVES teaching students about history and teaching children to be good, kind people. With those priorities, Mrs. Denault is obviously going to fit right in to our Falcon Family!

Families, It is with sadness that I share the announcement from the IESA director that the 2020-2021 Middle School / Junior High baseball and softball competition seasons and State series have been cancelled. You can read the full announcement at iesa.org. GCMS will be providing opportunities for practice and skill refinement at the local level following appropriate health guidelines.
