Hello GMS Families,
Welcome back! We hope that everyone has had a happy, healthy and restful Spring Break. The cherry blossoms are blooming and our beautiful city is coming alive! Our school continues to be a busy, vibrant learning community and we are looking forward to another exciting term.
Over these next months, our amazing staff will be busy completing this years curriculum, providing extra curricular opportunities to enhance our students learning opportunities, preparing our grade eight students for transition into secondary school and getting ready to welcome new grade five students. Middle school is a truly wonderful time and we love to see our students embrace opportunities, grow and have fun!
As we continue to navigate this pandemic together, we ask our community to prioritize health and safety. Parents and guardians, please remember to use our daily health check as a guide to determine if your child is able to attend school and support them with reminders to bring and wear a mask. We have done a magnificent job so far, let’s keep being vigilant, working together and staying healthy!
The last year has created many challenges for our students social and emotional development. As we head into our final term of the 2020-2021 school year, I encourage our students to focus on being kind, respectful and responsible citizens and to consider the following questions in relation to all the things they think, say and do: Is it the TRUTH? Is it FAIR to all concerned? Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS? Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned? Let’s all work together to make sure Glanford continues to be the greatest middle school around!
