We Need You!

Families are an important part of our work here at GMPS.  We value and require your interest and support of what we do each day at school.  You can be a part of what is going on here in a number of ways – the most important of which is communicating with your child(ren) about what they are learning and experiencing at school.  Learning is hard work!

In addition to this, you can be involved as often and as much as you are willing and able.  Reading communication from the school is the first step!  Keep in touch with us – it is a two way street.  Not every parent has the time or flexibility to be in the school or at our evening events but if you are looking for ways to be involved that we haven’t offered, please reach out to us.

TONIGHT – we have our first school council meeting of the year.  School Council is comprised of voting members (who must attend every meeting) and non-voting members who can come to as many meetings as they are able.  The purpose of Council is to enrich the learning at school and engage the community.  We are more than Fundraisers!  Council helps inform policy and procedure, writes the Principal Profile, hears updates of our important work and sets up Community Engagement.  We want to have you come out!  Childcare is provided for meetings.  At the top of the Blog homepage is a tab for School Council.  Check there for Executive Council names and contacts, meeting minutes, meeting dates and more!  COME TONIGHT at 7:00 p.m. AND JOIN US!  Last year we had roughly 40 people come out to our meeting…more than in many years previous.  Everyone is welcome!
