That's a Wrap, Folks! A Window Wrap, That Is!
The PRIDE committee at GMS is always looking for ways to promote school spirit! One of the ideas that was brought up last year was the possibility of a window wrap to enhance the look of GMS to approaching visitors, students and other guests.
The purpose of a window wrap can be purely decorative, but wraps can also manage sunlight and provide added security. The PRIDE committee worked with the company FastSigns to create customized window wraps that would cover the windows at the front entrance of our building. The primary goal was to use words, logos, and pictures that would promote our school PRIDE program and school spirit. Once designed, the window wraps were installed.
Everyone is excited about the “cool" entrance to our building! Come and take a look at it yourself, if you haven’t already seen it! The PRIDE committee was proud to create and fund this project.

Rachel’s Closet, located in the office at GMS, is a closet full of clothes, supplies and personal care items that middle school age students may need, but maybe cannot afford.
