The Greene Devil Weekly News

November 22-26, 2021

Message from Mrs. Adams

Dear Greene Devils,


Don't forget to wear your hats tomorrow! Greeneville City Schools would like to offer support to a collaborative school district in Louisiana that suffered devastating damage from Hurricane Ida earlier this school year. GMS students and staff are invited to wear hats for a cash donation to St. Charles Parish Public School Foundation on Monday, 11/22 and Tuesday, 11/23. All donations will go directly to the school system to support their recovery efforts! Any donation amount is appreciated, no amount is too small.


For more information about St. Charles Parish Public School Foundation and their recovery efforts, check out the link below.


Thank you for your continued support of GMS,


Mrs. Rachel Adams
Principal

Every minute counts! Our teachers are working hard to make the most of every minute during classes. It is important students arrive on time and ready to learn not only each morning but for each class throughout the day. Please help us remind students the importance of being prompt for their classes. Additionally, when students accumulate five or more unexcused tardies for a class, he/she will receive one after school detention. You can check your child's attendance including tardies on PowerSchool. Thank you for helping us ensure all students are successful!

Please remind your child to check lost and found for any missing items. We will also be reminding students daily at school. All items not claimed by winter break will be donated.
