Progress Reports - Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2019

Progress reports will be sent home on Wednesday, December 4, 2019. By that time all students should be at least 50% of their AR goal as well. Please have your child pull up their AR progress and show you how they're doing.


Please look over the reports, sign them, and return them to school the next day. THANKS!


NOTE: Remember that several hours and countless reminders were shared with students prior to the Thanksgiving Holiday. The only missing assignments that can be turned in for credit at this time are those from December. All previous grades will stand.

Caldwell Soil & Water Competition

Want to win some $$$$?

On our first day back from Thanksgiving Break we will have a guest speaker from the Caldwell Soil & Water Conservation District in Lenoir. Mrs. Steuer will be presenting students with a lesson on the Wetlands and give them opportunities to win some cold hard cash for their creativity and hard work!


Our 6th-grade students will be required to write an essay, on an assigned theme, as a class assignment. This writing will be entered into our school-level competition. The 6th-grade winner will advance to the Caldwell County Soil & Water Competition, be honored at a banquet (with their parents) and win some money. How exciting!


Students will also have the option to participate in a Poster Competition as well as a Slideshow competition. It is possible for a child to win in every single category. The skies the limit!


I will be providing all guidelines via Google Classroom to all students. I can't wait to see how fantastic everyone does! This must be completed by the due date to be considered in the competition.

Monday Morning #PimpleTeam Spelling Bee

First thing on Monday morning, the #PimpleTeam will have a "spell-off" to determine our two best spellers. The winners of this competition will advance to the GFMS Spelling Bee, which is scheduled for Thursday, December 5, 2019, at 8:00 am in the GFMS Media Center. The winner of the GFMS Spelling Bee will advance to the Caldwell County Spelling Bee which advances to State and National levels. This is another opportunity for students to show what they know!
