Students who were in the photo competition: If you did not pick up your photo from Mrs. Hatfield at the AuSable Artisan Village yesterday, you can pick it up from her in the office today.
 

Yearbook meeting Tuesday April 21 after school until 4:30

FYI for all students:  The giant March Madness bracket in the hallway is just a fun way to follow the college basketball teams as they compete for the national championship.  You are not actually playing basketball, nor are you on a team.  You aren’t required to do anything, just follow along and see who is still in the competition!

Members of the yearbook staff will be set up on the mezzanine to accept your yearbook order forms and money each morning until Spring Break.  Yearbooks are $20 and the staff will have forms available.  Order yours today!

ATTENTION 8TH GRADERS: Keep bringing in those baby pictures and any group pictures for the 8th Grade graduation slideshow presentation. Bring them to the office. If you have a digital image, please email it to Mrs. Wolcott at twolcott@casdk12.net.

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 until 4:30.

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.
