GMS Principal's Corner
November 21, 2021
Dear Galvin Families,
November has moved by quickly as we approach Thanksgiving. Just a reminder that Wednesday, November 24th is an early release with GMS dismissal at 11:05.
We hope everyone enjoyed parent/teacher conferences last Wednesday. If you were unable to attend, and would like to meet with any teacher, please reach out to your child's teacher to schedule.
We would like to thank our GMS CAPT for providing staff with a delicious breakfast last Friday morning. We appreciate the continued support from CAPT and GMS families.
We wish all our Galvin families a restful and Happy Thanksgiving break.

CANTON PUBLIC LIBRARY TO LAUNCH HOMEWORK CENTER FOR STUDENTS
The Canton Public Library is pleased to announce the opening of the Homework Center beginning Monday November 29th in the library Community Room. This program is offered to Canton middle school and high school aged residents. Our mission is to both alleviate school-related stress and to promote a sense of community among Canton students. Teen and tween residents will have access to free tutoring and homework help and also volunteer to tutor others.
The Homework Center will meet on a variety of days and times to accommodate as many schedules as possible. Please check the library’s Event Calendar for specific meeting times. Any adults or teenagers with tutoring experience or excellent academic records can apply to volunteer by visiting the Canton Public Library website and clicking on “Volunteer to Tutor.”
