I love it when new artwork is posted.  Simply amazing!

I thought I would share some pictures of what happens when you remove technology from students.  They actually begin to play games and talk with each other.  It's a great thing to see.






Just a reminder that Girls Basketball is still in season and typically play on Thursday nights.  They would love your support.

Next Friday incoming 5th graders will be touring GMS while our 8th graders are touring Bowie. 

Have a great weekend.

Gorzycki hosted the Souper Bowl of Caring Kick-off last Friday.  
It was quite interactive with games for Epic.  Mr. Tieh and Mr. De la Garza were very competitive.  
 And my office was almost filled with cans!

 I haven't heard who the winner was but the Spelling Bee Winners will be announced soon. 
And we finished off the week with our Winter Dance.  

Remember it is a 3 day weekend.   See you back on Tuesday.

GMS's second annual Service Fair was another huge success!  There were over 24 service organizations and students made thousands of donated items.  Thank you, PTA!

 The Winter Assembly is one of my favorite traditions at GMS.  It was started by Diane Gorzycki herself as a way of thanking the staff for all their support.  We saw performances from the dance team...

 Choir...
 Guitar...
 Orchestra...
 Theater...
 and Band.
 Plus the art classes created all the decorations for the amazing luncheon...
 And were the best servers ever!  My tea was never empty.

Wishing our GMS Families a relaxing and safe holiday season!
