Reminder – Item Pickup @ GMS this week!!!!

The Signup Genius link is closed! If absolutely need to go to the school to pick up items, email Ms. Seibert to see if she can help.

Wildcat Nation: There are several upcoming alpha-specific days where GMS students will be permitted to come to the school to retrieve and return items. On 

  • Monday, May 11: students with last names A-G,
  • Tuesday, May 12: students with last names H-O, and
  • Wednesday, May 13: students with last names P-Z,

students will be permitted to come to the school to:

  • return any textbooks, library books, or instruments,
  • clean out lockers, and/or
  • pick up medicine (parent is required).

Only students who need to return or pick up items* should come.

he only entry point will be at the bus port near the cafeteria. Only students can check-in with staff and enter the building. All other family members should wait in their parked vehicles, unless a parent needs to retrieve medicine from the nurse. Students will be allotted 20 minutes to enter the building, return any materials, pick up their belongings, and exit the building to their waiting vehicles. 

Students should practice social distancing and are encouraged to wear masks.

Please review the available slots in the Sign-Up Genius (link below) and click on the button to sign up for one time slot per student on your alpha-specific day.

Once a time slot is filled, nobody else will be allowed to enter the building at that time. Thank you!

*Due to a Covid-19 publishing delay, pre-purchased yearbooks will be distributed at a later date.


Final Grades Due

HI all! I hope that you’re having a good day so far! Update on grades:

Administration is asking for all grades to be submitted by teachers by Wednesday, May 20th, the last day of school. Since I have this deadline, I am asking that all assignments be done and turned in no later than Tuesday, May 19th at 8:00 p.m. I will update grades for the last time after all assignments are submitted. No late assignments will be taken after this time. Please prepare to make sure that you are able to get everything in within the next week. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Week 8 Digital Learning – We’re almost there!

Wow! I can’t believe that this marks the last full week of school. In just a few days, you’ll be done with your first year of middle school! Our last day of school is on Wednesday, May 20th!

Here are your last couple of math assignments for 6th grade!!!

Day 1 – Students will watch a Brainpop Video in Seesaw that explains surface area and how to calculate it (Part 1). Students will then watch the video of Mrs. Jean given instruction on how to calculate surface area. Students have 3 problems to try on their own (Part 2).

Day 2 – Students will complete the 8-question Quizizz on Surface Area. Students should have a pencil and paper handy to solve the problems. Please try this until you earn an 80% or better. The highest grade will be entered in the gradebook. The link can be found in Seesaw. View this video if needed:

Day 3 – Please make sure that all of your assignments are completed. Mrs. Jean will check them on Friday.

There will NOT be a Zoom meeting on this Monday. Please email me if you have any questions. My office hours are 9:45 – 2:45 pm.
