Staff/Teacher Appreciation Breakfast
Hello Galvin Community,
We have our annual Teacher/Staff Appreciation Breakfast coming up on Friday, November 22nd. We are in need of some delicious donations. Bagels will be delivered from Life’s a Bagel but other baked goods, fruits, yogurt, granola etc. would all be very helpful. If you have a special hot breakfast dish you would like to donate, it would be greatly appreciated.
I will be setting up in the Library after school on Thursday, November 21st until 3:30 pm and I will be back there by 6:30 am on Friday, November, 22nd for anyone who wants to drop off food. If neither of those times works for you to drop off we can work something else out.
If you can help please email Jenn Ryan at: firstname.lastname@example.org

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.

CAPE Spelling Bee!
CAPE is looking for a parent volunteer to serve as the GMS Parent Liaison for the Spelling Bee. The role of school liaison involves emailing the list of parents whose children are selected to be on a Spelling Bee team. The liaison will need to follow-up with families to confirm that their child can participate. This includes obtaining email confirmation that serves as a waiver, as well as ordering team t-shirts in collaboration with the GMS CAPT and administration. Once the teams are set, the liaison can recruit volunteers from the families involved to help organize practice sessions at school. If you are interested, please reach out to email@example.com.
