Happy New Year GK Families!

As we begin 2020, it is a perfect time for students to reflect on the first half of the school year and make changes to make them successful for the second half of the school year. Every student is given the opportunity to start the New Year with a blank slate and make the rest of the year as awesome as they want it to be. This past week, all students at GKMS created goals. I would encourage you to speak with your student about the goals they set.

8th Grade Promotion will take place on Thursday, May 21st at 7pm in the Genoa-Kingston High School gym. The 8th Grade Dance will take place at 6:30pm on Friday, May 8th in the gymnasium at the middle school. We are looking forward to a successful and memorable remainder of their 8th grade school year as they begin to make their transition to high school students.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at 815-784-5222 or by email at You can also follow us on Facebook at GenoaKingstonMiddleSchool and Twitter @gkmscogs424.
