Hello All GMS Families,

GMS Yearbook welcomes you to the 2022-2023 school year! Yearbooks are $45.00 and can only be ordered online.

We’re here to share some exciting news with you regarding the 2023 yearbook. Guess what? You’re officially on the yearbook photo staff! Yes, you read that right! This year, more than ever, we ask that you join us in helping to create the book.

What are some ways you could help us achieve this task? Consider:

  • Send us original resolution pictures (and questions) to
  • When you see an email in regards to the yearbook, open it! Complete the form requesting information and pictures! Easy.
  • Capture CANDID moments and send them to us. By candid we mean non-posed.
  • Student organizations definitely deserve some love: help us gather memories of meetings, practices or virtual events.
  • Calling all athletes: we are talking about school sports or extracurricular sports. Share your stories and photos!
  • If you or a parent you know takes pictures at student events, please email us.
  • Take photos of ANYTHING that happens in your home that connects back to our school, whether virtually or in-person.
  • We want to feature any students who are doing something awesome.

The Yearbook Staff wants to include as much as possible from our virtual learners in this year’s yearbook. Please take the time to take candid photographs of your learners doing interesting activities that we can include in the yearbook. Photos can be emailed to at any time.

This yearbook is unique in that it will be created by the whole school. We hope to create a yearbook that encompasses all of our GMS Students this year, and you can help make that possible. Thank you in advance for being a part of this historic year.


Please note that yearbooks can ONLY be ordered online,

GMS would like to say THANK YOU to the PTO members/parents who volunteered their time to make this year’s Halloween Trunk or Treat so Awesome!


Student Council and Lion's Club Join Forces for Food Drive

Student Council along with the Goodrich Lions Club is sponsoring a Canned Food drive from Wednesday, November 2nd through Wednesday, November 16th. The food will be used for food baskets here in Goodrich so all families can have a Happy Thanksgiving.

There is a competition. The grade that brings in the most items gets to have a movie 5th and 6th hours on the last day before Thanksgiving break.

However, IF OUR ENTIRE school can bring in over 1,000 items our entire school gets to have a movie on Tuesday, November 22nd!

So, bring in cans of food to your first hour teacher to help everyone have a Happy Thanksgiving!
