RSVP for GMN and Valentine's Party - By Feb 11th

On Friday, February 12th we are going to have GMN in the morning and also the Valentine parties in the afternoon. For security purposes we ask parents to RSVP in advance, if you are planning to attend either one or both of these events.


If you have ever signed in through the computer in our front office, then you will need to RSVP utilizing the link below. One RSVP will cover both events, and you will be able to check in quickly in the foyer to receive a name tag. If you do not RSVP, or if we have not scanned your license in the front office this school year, then you will need to complete this process in the office before you are allowed to attend either of the two events.

You can stop by the front office to scan your license any school day from 7:30am-3:30pm. We look forward to your seeing you on Friday, February 12th.


Please reply to this RSVP link by 12:00pm Thursday, February 11, to confirm attendance at GMN at 8:00am, at your student’s party on Friday, February 12 at 1:45pm or at both events. Each adult attending will need to enter his/her name on the RSVP list. Each adult only needs to RSVP once - even if you have multiple parties to attend in the school. If you are not able to attend, you do NOT need to complete.
