Thursday Updates

Dear Galvin Families,

Every Thursday (occasionally it's a Friday) we send out a weekly update and reminder of any events in the upcoming week(s) at The Galvin. Below are next week's upcoming events.

#GMSSTEAMWeek

What a week it has been here at GMS. Student interest, engagement, curiosity and creation has been at an all time high and we couldn't be more thrilled. We hope that you follow us on Twitter (@GalvinMiddle) and that you've been seeing pictures of the work being done this week. We're including some of additional photos below. We also hope that you have the opportunity to join us tomorrow for our exhibition of student work. Come walk the halls of GMS, stop by classrooms and listen to students talk about their learning. It's an event not to be missed! See the invitation below for times.

An email containing information about how to sign up and access School Appointments will be sent on Monday, November 4th.

Early Dismissal

We realize that it may be necessary at times to dismiss your child from school. If this need occurs, please write a note in the morning stating the name of your child, grade, and time of dismissal. Your child should bring this note to the Guidance secretary, Lynn Piana, before school. This notice is posted in our daily attendance for the teachers. Children may then leave their class at the appropriate time and check out through the main office. All parents and guardians must come to the main office to pick up their children. This note in the morning also alleviates interrupting classes to page the student. Thank you.

Lost and Found

As the school year is moving along we are accumulating a large amount of lost and found! We have 2 large boxes in the atrium by the gym doors (1st floor). Please ask your children to take a look for any items they may be missing. We have jackets, sweatshirts, lunchboxes, water bottles, sneakers etc.
