Hard to believe this is our last Friday and the end of my third year here at GMS.  This has been a packed week. 

Locker cleanouts....No  more backpacks
 Duke TIP awards...
 Final Orchestra Concert...
 NJHS induction ceremony...
 The new mural is almost finished...
 8th grade end of year celebration
 Traditional student versus faculty volleyball games...

We are down to the final two days.  Don't forget that Monday is a holiday.  

Also, student dress code is enforced.  There has been No agreement between the students and school that it doesn't need to be followed.  Shorts need to be fingertip length and sleeves must be three fingers on the shoulder.

The GMS Dancers had a wonderful time at the Dance Banquet.  Thank you Mrs. Hanson and Ms. Wilbanks for all you do.
 GMS students recognized by the AISD School Board for their Vision and Voice entries. 
 A little fun time after STAAR.
 Our own Teacher of the Year, Ms. Prepster was recognized at the district banquet.
 The MCs for the Talent Show.
 I couldn't watch all the acts, but she was amazing. 
Seven days until summer.  End of Year field trips start next week.  I know the grade levels are looking for volunteers.  Please check out the website for more information. 

Have a great weekend.

 Wonder received the first ever Draylen Mason scholarship at the Austin Youth Orchestra event on Sunday.  Our orchestras received Superior ratings and Best in Class!

 Art 3 students painting a new GMS mural.  Can't wait to see finished product.

Choir students warming up for their Spring Concert.  Heard Mr. Heckler had a surprise performance as well?

GMS had an awesome week appreciating teachers.  Not sure what they like better, the coffee bar or mugs.

Student Council getting ready for the Fun Run tomorrow.  Race starts at 8:30.  Hope to see you there.

 Hope I am not giving away a surprise, but the woodshop students were so creative with their gifts this year. 

Next week is a full week of STAAR.  Have a great weekend.

GMS student council summit
 The winners of our Lip Sync Battle...the 6th grade Rockers!

Shout-out to our Orchestra students two of which earned Superior ratings. 

We still have about 20% of our students who have not registered.  Remember that schedules will NOT be created if a student hasn't registered.  I heard some parents have just forgotten to hit the "submit" button.  Please double check.

Next week is Teacher Appreciation Week.  Help me show our teachers how much they are appreciated.  

Have a great weekend.
