The Bobcat Bulletin


Happy Monday!

Hello GBS Bobcats;

Welcome back everyone! This week starts out with a bang, with a classic nor-easter blanketing the region in snow the next few days! Be careful and safe out there!

Note: Students will not attend school tomorrow / Tuesday, March 14th, as it is voting day in many of our local communities...but with the weather being what it is, be careful and stay safe.

Thanks again for all that you do Bobcats, and be well.

- Joe Wright, Assistant Principal

Quote of the Day:

“Stay away from those people who try to disparage your ambitions.

Small minds will always do that, but great minds will give you a feeling that you can become great too.”

- Mark Twain

Mattress Fundraiser

Save the date! GBS, SMS and CVHS are joining forces Sunday, March 19th, 10 AM - 4 PM at ConVal HS for a Mattress Fundraiser. Please note: this fundraiser does not have the students or parents/guardians needing to sell or attend an event.

If you, friends, neighbors or family members buy a Mattress and say who referred you, that student (8th through 12 grade) or school (GBS, SMS or CVHS) will receive the profits!

8th through 12th Grade music students will receive fundraising money in their school account and go towards a Music Disney Trip next spring! The high school cafeteria will be turned into a Mattress showroom and the event coordinators will take care of everything.
