Christmas Lunch a Success

Annual Christmas Dinner

Annual Christmas Dinner

Thank you doesn't really convey how grateful we are to our parent volunteers of both Griffiths-Scott and Millet School who came out to make our dinner a success.  Special thanks to Christine and Dan Sych who organized the whole dinner.  I can't imagine having to cook 15 turkeys, peel and cook over a hundred pounds of potatoes, not to mention all the trimmings.  Thank you to the parents and people they know that donated all the food.  They managed to feed 305 students and staff.  The meal was on time and piping hot.  Thank you.  Please drop by our photo gallery to get a glimpse of our volunteers in action.

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.
