End of Year Notes

We want to wish all soon to be freshman all the best as they move on to Pedro Menendez or their high school of choice.

Beginning June 1, summer office hours for GRMS will be 7:30 - 4:30, Monday thru Thursday. These hours run through August 2. SJC schools and district offices will be closed on Fridays. There will be times when office staff, including administrators will be out of the office for meetings or vacation, so if you are expecting a response from a particular person, please allow a day or two for reply.

We are seeking some parents who would be interested in learning how they could support the school through participation with the PTO. You need not be an officer. If you would like to learn more, you may contact our teacher representative, Ms. Ashley Demaio. Her email is:

This newsletter will not be weekly over the summer. Messages will go out as information needs to be shared in preparation for next school year or possibly summer school notes.

We want to thank everyone for your support of students and the school this year. We are aware that parenting is rewarding but can also be challenging. We feel the same here at Gamble. Though there are challenges, we love our students and working with them is rewarding. We look forward to partnering with those of you having students returning in August.

Have a wonderful summer!

Field Day

We had a successful Field Day on Tuesday. Each grade level had 90 minutes to rotate among three groups: games on the field, dunking staff in the tank, and signing yearbooks in the gym. Below are a few pictures from the day's events.

Special Recognition

Congratulations to 7th grader Camryn McDermott. She was recently selected to attend a STEM camp this summer by the American Association of University Women of St. Augustine. The Tech Trek Florida STEM camp is for eighth grade girls and campers will choose from Engineering/Architecture, Neuroscience, Computer Science, Robotics and Marine Biology. Camryn will also participate in workshops, field trips, video projects, and interactions with professional women currently in STEM careers. There will be 96 girls participating, including 23 from St. Johns county schools. We are proud of Camryn and hope she was a wonderful experience!
