Star Party Friday!!

We are so excited for our Star viewing party on Friday, May 15th. We will start at 8:00pm. Please bring a dessert to share. The Fort Worth Astronomical Society will have telescopes set up for viewing of the night sky. *We will make decisions about the weather on Friday. Please watch emails. :-)

Please remind students that summer hasn't started yet! (Check Skyward!)

Sixth Grade Awards

We are so proud of all of the hard work our students have completed this year. Sixth grade awards are May 29th from 8:30-11:30a.m. Students should be dressed in "Sunday Best" clothing. Unlike elementary school, not all students receive an award. This does not in ANY WAY diminish the work each student has done this year. You will be contacted by a GMS teacher if your child is receiving an award. (Students can bring a change of clothes for the afternoon)

STEM Design Obstacle Course Challenge

After the sixth grade awards ceremony, we have planned an afternoon of fun and design! Students will be working to design an obstacle for an obstacle course. Students will then get to "run" the course to see which team designed the best obstacles. It should be LOTS of fun! We will be ordering pizza and dessert for students. Please send $3 to school by Monday, May 18th. This will cover lunch and dessert. Students will need to bring their own drinks.
