Learning Commons - What Is It.?

Has your child mentioned "Learning Commons" at home?  If so they are referring to the learning environment in the Library that is new this year at GSMS.  Mrs. Killen and Mrs. Coleman spend part of their teaching time each day in the Learning Commons.  Students work individually or in small groups with the support of the Learning Commons teacher in coordination with their classroom teacher.  It is an alternate learning space and is supportive of a variety of students needs.  If you have questions or would like more information about Learning Commons please speak to your child's teacher of Mrs. Coleman.

World Read Aloud Day

World Read Aloud Day was on February 16, 2017.  GSMS and Millet School shared a very successful celebration on this day!  Our GSMS students went over to Millet School to share stories, reading and a small snack with their younger buddies.  The grade 8 class made special bookmarks for all the Millet School students!  All students (young and old) were engaged in their reading and it was a great leadership opportunity for our Griffins.
