GMS Principal's Corner
January 23, 2022
Dear Galvin Families,
It was a pleasure to attend our Grade 6 Winter Concert this past Tuesday evening. Each year our students amaze us with their multitude of talents. The Galvin offers students various enrichment opportunities throughout the school year. Our GMS Math team (see below) continues to excel at each meet. Other enrichment opportunities include our literary magazine - Fresh Ink, asking students to submit artwork, prose, photography and poems. In addition, we offer a Girls Who Code Club and two Robotics Teams. Also, our winter clubs started last week, offering students over 16 different choices such as Mural Club, Creative Writing Club, Great Galvin Baking Club, and Art Workshop Club to just name a few. We encourage students to get engaged and take advantage of these enrichment opportunities.

7th Grade Field Trips
Grade 7 students will be attending two field trips in the coming months. The first will be a visit to The Hall at Patriot Place by Raytheon. Students will participate in educational based interactive activities with a focus on math, science, and team building.
The second field trip will be to the Deer Ecology On-Site Special Educational Program, which is a wrap up to our "Oh Deer" Project Based Learning in science. This will take place at Blue Hills Trailside Museum with program leaders from Mass Audubon. The students will rotate through various stations including Tracks & Traces, Live Animals & Food Webs, Trophic Level Game and a hike up Big Blue.
Permission slips for the trips will be going out to students on Monday 1/24.
