GRAYLING MIDDLE SCHOOL

Today is Tuesday, December 6, 2016. Today is a WHITE DAY for 6th Grade Students

 

ATTENTION ALL STUDENTS AND PARENTS: We have been seeing parents drop off students at the handicapped entrance by the parking lot. All students must enter school in the morning and leave school after dismissal by the STUDENT ENTRANCE. It is the entrance where the busses drop you off by the flag pole. The entrance by the parking lot is a safe entrance for handicapped students, parents and staff. Any student who uses the doors by the parking lot before school or leaves after dismissal will be made to walk around the building to the proper entrance.

The GMS food drive is THIS week - Monday through Friday. 6th grade collection will be in 1st hour. 7th and 8th grade collection will be in 2nd hour. Bring in non-perishable food items to help local families! If your class needs a box, Mrs. Herman has a few outside her door.

It’s "Take Your Mom & Dad to the Movies Night" on Monday at 7:00 PM! And it’s FREE at the Rialto uptown Grayling. The movie is “Remember the Titans” and is a story of how leadership of a few can promote teamwork, trustworthiness, respect, responsibility and citizenship in many. The movie is free but donations of canned or packaged food for the Viking Pantry is gratefully accepted. This is the second Family Night at the Rialto sponsored by Mt. Hope Lutheran Church, Michelson Memorial United Methodist Church and Grayling Free Methodist Church.
 

Boys basketball players gold cards are due today (December 6th).  8th graders bring your cards & money to coach Kucharek.  7th graders coach Hofman.  

If students have their purple slip to turn in of someone willing to help at school on the 22nd, please turn it into Mrs. Sheldon or the main office. In order to have the fun day (PARENTS AS TEACHERS DAY) on December 22,  we need about 16 more presenters to volunteer for the day.  So if you know of anyone that is willing to come in for the day, please contact Mrs. Sheldon.
 

Grayling Recreation Authority is again offering the Good Grade Program at Hanson Hills. When you get your report card on Friday, take it to Hanson Hills to get a great deal on Season Ski Passes!

GRA 2017 GMS SKI TEAM will begin Tuesday, January 3 (the day we come back to school from winter break). But you must have your registration in to Hanson Hills by January 1! This is a racing team of students 5th-8th grade that already know how to ski. Registration forms are in the office.

Students are to turn in their Chromebook forms and money to Mrs. Hatfield BEFORE SCHOOL IN THE MORNING. If you normally go to the gym or Media Center in the morning before school, come to the office and take care of your Chromebook form BEFORE going to your destination. Mrs. Hatfield processes the Chromebook forms and adds your name to a list she shares with the teachers at 8:20. If you turn yours in after 8:20, you will not be on the list until the next day.

Students:  A huge part of school success is staying organized.  Grayling Middle School does offer agenda books (also known as planners), to students who will use them to write down their assignments, homework, upcoming events, etc.  If you need an agenda book for this school year and will use it, please stop by the Main Office to get yours.  Students will only be allowed one per school year.  

ATTENTION ALL STUDENTS: All students must enter school in the morning and leave school after dismissal by the STUDENT ENTRANCE. It is the entrance where the busses drop you off by the flag pole. The entrance by the parking lot is a safe entrance for handicapped students, parents and staff. Any student who uses the doors by the parking lot before school or leaves after dismissal will be made to walk around the building to the proper entrance.


Box Tops: Students and staff, please get clipping boxtops. Ask your friends and family, too. This is a year round, rather painless fundraiser that is for the Common Good. 7th and 8th grade students give them to your 2nd hour teachers. 6th graders give them to your 6th hour teachers. We thank you in advance for your participation.

REMINDER TO ALL STUDENT ATHLETES: Remember to get your sports physical so that you can join the GMS sports teams in the fall. Sports physicals MUST BE DATED APRIL 15, 2016, OR LATER TO BE VALID for fall 2016 sport activities. Physical forms are available in the office.

ATTENTION PARENTS: Parents are to drop off and pick up students on Chestnut Street NOT BY THE HANDICAPPED PARKING AREA in the school parking lot. The parking lot by the office is a safe entrance for our handicapped students, parents and staff. Students seen entering through the parking lot entrance will be made to walk around the school building to the proper entrance.

 

Students who wish to take their chrome book home, please pick up a self-insurance form in the office. By filling out the insurance form and paying the insurance premium, this will allow students to take their chromebook home. It is the expectation of the school that chromebooks will be brought to school everyday charged and ready to go. Students may pick up a form before school or during their lunch time. Bring the completed form and money to Mrs. Hatfield in the office BEFORE SCHOOL in the morning.

STUDENTS: If you miss your scheduled bus, get on the LAST SCHOOL BUS (left at your building) AND RIDE TO THE GRAYLING ELEMENTARY. You can get off and go to your regular bus at that time.

Have a great day at GMS, where the good stuff is in the middle!

HOMEWORK LAB:  Homework Lab is every Tuesday thru Friday (except the last day before a vacation). It is from 3:10-4:10 in our Media Center. Students can get help with their homework but must come to the Media Center by 3:10 and stay until Homework Lab is over.  Parents need to make arrangements for their child's ride home.
