GRAYLING MIDDLE SCHOOL
Today is Friday, May 22, 2017. Today is a GREEN DAY for 6th Grade Students
ATTENTION PARENTS AND STUDENTS: Students can no longer charge a lunch. Please check your accounts to pay any charges you may have. ALSO, students who have borrowed lunch money from the office need to repay it ASAP. The secretaries have been sending home (orange)notices with students to try to recoup these funds.
Chromebooks will not be going home after June 1. Students need to bring their Chromebook charger to school by June 1 also.
The Carnival is coming to town this week! The carnival will open Thursday, May 25 after school. It will open each day after that at noon. The carnival closes this year on Monday, May 29. Wristband coupons are available at the school office and at Family Fare.
NEW 4-H Clubs: Crawford County 4-H Garden Club on Wednesdays will continue to meet during the summer. 4-H Yoga will be on Thursdays. Information sheets are in the office.
4-H Babysitting Classes are Wed. and Thurs., May 24 & 25 from 3:30-5:00 at the Crawford County MSU Extension Office. Or you can attend on Saturday, May 27 at the Houghton Lake Wesleyan Church. Information sheets are in the office.
There are information sheets about 4-H camps available this summer in the office as well.
Little Viking Golf is being offered again this summer. You can pick up registration forms in the office. The deadline is June 1.
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.
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.
