GBMS Families & Community,
“Feet, what do I need them for If I have wings to fly.”― Frida Kahlo

December is a time to reset. We will be reinforcing schoolwide and classroom expectations. Please help us by talking to your student regarding finishing this semester strong.
We are here if you need support. As we near the holidays it is important that we acknowledge families that might be hurting or are in need. If you would like to sign up for our food pantry or need some assistance during the holidays please reach out to us. Thank you for all your support and I hope to connect with many of you at our Winter Showcase on December 8th at 5:15 pm.
