Colds and Flu

It is that time of year and we have a number of students who are coming to school sick and needing to go home to rest.  Please have a look at the bulletin we posted from Public Health earlier this fall.  Take note of what you can do to prevent getting or passing on colds and flus.   Please do not send your child to school if they have a fever or are throwing up – or if they have had a fever or have thrown up in the last 24 hours.  Thank you!


Congratulations Mavericks!

Happy Tuesday Maverick Families!

Spirit Wear orders have all been handed out.  If you believe you ordered spirit wear and none comes home, please send your invoice to and we will investigate.

SCHOOL COUNCIL – is on Thursday night at 7 p.m. in the Library.  There is childcare available if needed.  We welcome everyone and are excited to share and discuss the current and future happenings of the school and classrooms.

Lunch time programs – Flyers have been sent home for Tennis, Chess and Guitar.  These programs are set to start at the beginning of February.  If you are interested in these paid programs, please return your forms asap as space is limited.

Lunchtime Supervisors / Office Support Needed – We are in need of an additional person to help us with supervision at lunch time as of the beginning of February.  We also have an opportunity for an interested and qualified person to cover the school office when Ms. Whitfield takes her lunch.  Please call us at the school if you are interested and speak with Ms. Whitfield.  We appreciate your support with this matter.

Look for more information coming out on the Blog about upcoming events and news at GMPS!

Spirit Wear

Spirit Wear is here and will be sent home with students Tuesday. They look great!

If you ordered Mavericks Spirit Wear, please label it with your child’s name to avoid losing them in the ‘ever growing’ lost and found pile.

Go Mavericks!

Family Literacy Night

Thank you to the teachers and families who made tonight a success. We had a great time together! Reading to and with one another everyday is so important for ALL ages as we grow and learn. Even discussing what we are reading with our older kids can help to make meaning from text. #readtogether

Junior Volleyball Update

Congratulations to the Jr Co-Ed Volleyball Team for an outstanding season!! On Thursday January 18th, the German Mills Mavericks traveled to Woodland for our Area Tournament and played in 5 very exciting games! Our team was an excellent competitor. We won two very big matches against some top teams and learned a lot with each game. Mme. Nastic is very proud of each and every Maverick for their great hustle, teamwork, commitment and determination this season. Way to go, Mavericks!!
