Over the past few weeks, the school has had several families unaware of a specific rules or policies here at GMS.   The district Student Code of Conduct can be located on the district website at  The GMS Student Handbook is located in the student planner.  It is the first 13 pages with the front page requesting both the student and parent signature.

Our Lady Tiger Volleyball teams have ended their seasons.  Proud of all these Tigers.  Our 8th grade Tigers won the Southwest Championship.   (This is a great time to mention that if you have a picture that you would like me to blog or tweet, please email it to me with a quick caption.  I don't attend all events and need some help with photos!)

Fun to see yoga happening in PE.

The choir program had their Fall Concert this week and I heard it was amazing.

The 7th grade teams recognized outstanding students from last six weeks.

Online ordering for the upcoming bookfair has begun.  The bookfair begins October 30th.  

Early voting has begun.  More information on early poll sites can be found on the district website.  

Have a great weekend.

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
