Principal's Corner

January 13th - January 17th


We're off and running with our girl's basketball season as well as wrestling. It has been fun to pop in to practices and watch our students work hard! A reminder that we have two weeks (8 school days) left with this semester. Thank you for encouraging your student to finish this semester strong.

Over the course of the next three weeks, we have our Winter Fundraiser that largely helps fund many of the student activities for the remainder of the year. Your student will be coming home with "sign-ups" for chocolate sales. They should be delivered to students and make their way back home by Valentine's Day. Please encourage your student to get out and support their school while also trying to earn some pretty cool prizes!

We also have our NMS/SMS Dance (WINTER WHITE-OUT!) that is hosted by the GPHS leadership group. North and South staff - as well as GPHS staff - will be helping out at the dance this Friday. Sign-ups in the Front Office all this week! The dance will be at the high school Friday Night from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. There should be something for everyone, so come on out and have a great time!

A big thanks to our PTSA that funded our new drinking fountain complete with a water bottle fill station in the 8th grade hall. Send your student with their water bottle so that they can stay hydrated! Come join us this Friday in the Principal's Office for our January PTSA Meeting at 12:00 p.m.

Grace and Peace,

Mr. Sale
