GRAYLING MIDDLE SCHOOL

Some 2016-17 Yearbooks are still available in the office for $20.

CHROMEBOOKS: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 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.

HOMEWORK LAB will take place Tuesday through Friday each week except for the day before a vacation such as Thanksgiving. Homework Lab is in the Media Center and goes from 3:10  to 4:10 PM. All students must be in the Media Center by 3:10 and sign in. Students must stay the entire time and not leave until 4:10. Remember to arrange for a ride home ahead of time as the office is closed at 4:00 (before Homework Lab is over).

The Book Fair begins FRIDAY, OCTOBER 6 and will run through next Friday morning! Stop by the Media Center and check it out most days from 8 AM until 3:30 PM. The actual times are posted in the Media Center.

A 4-H Chess Club is starting and looking for members. For those interested in joining this Chess Club, there is a sign up sheet in the Main Office. Tyler Brandt will contact those that have signed up with more details.

The Grayling Photo Club will be meeting on Monday, Oct. 9 at GMS in Room 100 at 7 PM. This meeting will include a competition among club members with the theme “Summer Fun”. Students as well as adults are welcome.

ATTENTION 8TH GRADERS: Do you have the right style of leadership to survive a Zombie Apocalypse? Would you like to test your leadership style in an active, hands-on encounter? You are invited to attend a series of workshops that will teach you many leadership skills. There is a flyer in the office that lets you know how to sign up.

REMINDER TO ALL STUDENT ATHLETES: Sports physicals MUST BE DATED APRIL 15, 2017, OR LATER TO BE VALID for the 2017-18 school year sport activities. Physical forms are available in the office.

STUDENT CELL PHONES: Students are allowed to bring their cell phones to school provided that they are stored in their lockers during classtime. The school district is NOT RESPONSIBLE for lost or stolen devices so bring your cell phone or device to school AT YOUR OWN RISK. Students are allowed to use cell phones before school starts, during lunchtime, and after school. Students caught using their device during classtime will have their device taken away. Parents may have to come to the school personally to pick up the device. 

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.

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: 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.
