GMS FIELD TRIP POLICY

With our schools slowly returning back to “normal,” we are excited about the potential to bring back our end-of-the-year reward field trips.


I wanted to remind parents that if and when these return, student participation is based on their behavior throughout the year. As outlined in the student handbook, when students receive a disciplinary measure at school, there is a point value associated with that discipline. If they have received 10 or more points throughout the school year, they will be unable to attend this reward trip.


Please stay tuned for news about any potential upcoming field trips and speak with your children about the importance of behaving in school for many reasons, including participation in special events like these trips.

MARCH STUDENTS OF THE MONTH

Congratulations to the following March students of the month. These students were nominated by their teachers, based on many factors, including but not limited to: work ethic, grades, positive attitude, helpfulness and other PRIDE qualities. Congratulations to:

Charlotte Delaney, 6th grade; Iszzabella Heninburg, 7th grade; and Dominic Melaragni , 8th grade.

8TH GRADE FIELDTRIP TO ZEKELMAN HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL CENTER

At the beginning of February, the 8th graders took a field trip to the Zekelman Holocaust Memorial Center in Farmington Hills as part of their curriculum. The mission of the center is to engage, educate, and empower by remembering the Holocaust. Students toured the center with museum educators who encouraged students to interact with the exhibits and to be inquisitive about this time in history. At the conclusion of the tour, the groups had the pleasure of hearing from a 2nd generation survivor (the child of a survivor) who told the story of her parent’s experience escaping Nazi persecution. Students left the center with a better understanding of the atrocities that occurred and the perseverance and determination of the victims. The 8th graders are continuing their study of WWII and the Holocaust for the next few weeks.
