The GMS Student Leadership Team and PTA Community Outreach developed a plan to help victims from Hurricane Harvey.  Together, they collected four truckloads of donations like towels, clothes, food, toiletries, diapers, and pet food.  Meals were provided to a local nursing home hosting patients from flooded communities.  Gift cards continue to come in and are being delivered as well.  Thank you to everyone that supported our Texan communities. 
The GMS volleyball teams have ended the regular season.  Both A teams moved up to the next round.  Please join us Monday night at 6:00 to cheer them to the final bracket Wednesday.  


At the same time, the GMS football teams are playing O'Henry at House Park starting at 6:00.  All our sport teams could use your support.


Just a reminder that all upcoming events and activities can be found at www.gmstigers.com.
Next week is Transportation Week.  With 19 buses bringing students to and from school safely each school day, please help and show your appreciation.

Have a great weekend.

A week with rain always adds energy on the campus.  Unfortunately, the rain caused some damage in one of our portables.  Luckily Mr. Piper quickly noticed the situation, moved the students to another area of the room, and kept the learning moving forward.  By the time I made it out to the portable, I didn't even notice a problem.


Ms. Oh, one of our awesome counselors, started 6th grade guidance lessons this week. 
So much is happening next week. First we are celebrating the end of the first six weeks with PAWS for Fun. This reward is during 6th period Monday.  Ask your student if they get to participate.

Way to go Lady Tigers.  They are definitely on a roll...

GMS Green Ag class is up and running.  This week students identified native and non-native plants.


Can't wait for our first theater performance.  There is lots of practicing happening...


Welcome to the first day of autumn.  Have a great autumn weekend.

Theater students performing Greek myths and wearing masks they created in class.
 Students from Mrs. Law's class presenting projects from different home countries.

Enjoy your weekend.

GMS has a new Gnasher.  Both the student and uniform are new.  One never knows when Gnasher might show up on campus or a game.  Be on the lookout.

Classroom libraries are so important.  Look what happened several years ago to one of the 6th grade classroom libraries when students were asked to organize themselves.  I love the idea of arranging by color.  It gets my attention every time I walk in the room.

GMS has volleyball games as well at the 6th grade social next week.  Support with one or the either is always appreciated.

Have a great weekend.

Volleyball season has begun.  All four GMS volleyball teams had games this week.  I was able to watch the 7th grade games.  So much fun to see the new teams at work.  
 GMS even hosted a Bowie Volleyball tournament.  Most of this freshman team were previous Lady Tigers. 
The GMS Student Council, Faculty, and PTA needs your help.  Donations for the evacuees in Austin and volunteer teams at the coast are needed.  All types of perishable items are needed, especially gift cards for groceries, food, and supply centers.  Donation boxes are already set-up around the school and supplies will be distributed daily.  We know the Tiger Community will rally and donations will be plenty.  Thank you in advance.

Today was our first Popcorn Friday hosted by PTA.  It is our favorite day of the month.

Don't forget Tuesday is Back-to-School Night.  Please have copies of your student's schedule.  

Enjoy the beautiful long weekend.
