GMS Newsletter

May, 2022

GMS Families,

In order to better meet the needs of our students, GMS students in 7th grade are being asked to take a risk-assessment survey next week in their Seminar class. This survey is completely optional and anonymous. The survey asks students about their experiences with violence and substance use. If you would like to review the survey or if you would prefer your child not take the survey, please contact the GMS office.

Thank you,

Joe Somerville
