GMS YEARBOOKS

January 28, 2022 is the last day to order a personalized yearbook. This is also the last day to guarantee receiving a yearbook.


From best friends to band practices - this year, every day means everything. The yearbook team is working hard to capture every moment and memory in the 2022 yearbook.


If you are interested please visit JostensYearbooks.com before the deadline.

After January 28th, non-personalized yearbook sales will still be open until yearbooks are sold out.

STUDENT CLUBS AT GMS

Is your child interested in starting a club at GMS?

We are open to hearing about and working with them to make it happen.

If they are passionate about a topic or subject and would like to pursue that interest with other students, have them See Mr. Odinga in the office and he can walk them through the process of creating a club.
