GRAYLING MIDDLE SCHOOL
Today is Thursday, January 19, 2017. Today is a WHITE DAY for 6th Grade Students
CASA Spring Soccer Registration forms are in the office.
We are happy to announce the Mackinac Center has listed Grayling High School in the top 20 public and charter schools. We are listed #14. We are #3 for public schools run by a District!
The organization said the "Michigan Context and Performance Report Card measures school performance by adjusting standardized test scores to account for student background," or the “context” of a school.
As a form of recognition, Friday, January 20th will be Grayling Pride day. Please wear Green and White and any Grayling apparel that you feel represents your district.
Attention Fishing Club Members: We will be having a fishing trip on Monday January 16th after school at Lake Margrethe. If you are interested in attending, please let Mr. Kotecki know as soon as possible. Also, if anyone is interested in learning how to tie flies for fly fishing, the members of Trout Unlimited will be giving free lessons on Wednesdays after school. The first lesson will be held next week January 18th.
Literary Lunch for 8th graders begins Tuesday, January 24.
Attention anyone interested in learning how to tie flies: The members of Trout Unlimited will be giving free lessons on Wednesdays after school. The first lesson will be held this Wednesday, January 18th after school until 4:30.
We still have a pair of boots size 6 or7 that were donated. If you could use a pair of boots, come to 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.
