A Message from Rick Benoit

Dear GNGMS Families

Again, we want to thank everyone for such a great start to the year!  Our students and staff are doing many great things together as we build our learning communities.

One thing I do wish to touch on are extracurricular activities.  There have been a few incidents as of late where spectators have been less than sportsmanlike, both by visitors and home spectators.  While we love to have fans supporting our teams, please have a discussion with your students that we only allow positive encouragement and behaviors at both our events and events at the High School.  We would not want to tell any students they may not attend, but attendance at such events are a privilege and not a right.  We want our community members and guests to view us as the respectful, responsible and kind community that we are.

Our first social (for 5th and 6th graders, 2-4 PM) and dance (for 7th and 8th graders, 7-9 PM) will be on September 30th. There are no special dress requirements for the dance. Students should follow the regular dress code for the school.

If you are willing to donate any individually wrapped food items or drinks, all of the proceeds would benefit the Team. 

We also need parent volunteers to help chaperone! If you are interested, you must complete the volunteer application and the district will run a background check. Forms are available in the Main Office or on the MSAD 15 website. Please see additional details in this newsletter.

Thank you for your continued support of our students and programs.
