This spring the spotlight is on German Mills. Our school is bursting with talent and finally there is a place for the Mavericks to shine. Spotlight is a talent show for Grades 4-8 students to share their skills. You can do anything; singing, dancing, magic, playing instruments, martial arts , poetry . . . any talent you have and want to share.
If you wish to participate, please submit your audition form by Monday February 25th, at 3:30 p.m. Please access this link to submit your form online: http://bit.ly/GMPSSpotlight.
We can’t wait to see all of German Mills’ talents!

Our Dance-a-thon has helped fund many exciting initiatives over the years. From soccer nets, playground games, basketball nets, musical instruments, and art supplies, to stage risers, a large retractable screen in the gym, technology and our playground. We thank students, parents, staff, and our community for their continued support, as this fundraiser has helped to enrich and benefit our school.
This Year’s dance-a-thon is on Tuesday, March 5th; please save the date! More exciting details will follow. Go Mavericks!
