Leadership Team

The Leadership Team is excited to offer activities for students starting in March. All GNGMS students are welcome to participate via Zoom on Wednesdays from 2-3pm. The first meeting will be March 10. 

Please contact Mrs. Knedler at lknedler@sad15.org to get the link to our sessions.

Book Club:  2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month from 2-3pm. 

For students interested in reading and discussing books found on the Junior Library Guild app. Students will help select a book, read it in their free time, and discuss the book with guided questions to facilitate conversations.  

GNGMS Cooking Challenge: 2nd Wednesday of the month from 2-3pm.  

Leadership Team members will host a weekly food challenge. Any GNGMS student interested in participating will receive a message a week ahead of the session to gather or purchase ingredients. For safety purposes, recipes will use the microwave or a toaster rather than the stovetop or oven. The first session will not be using heat. Students will be making a snack mix so start thinking about creative ways to make a yummy treat to fuel your brains!  Be sure to ask for the Zoom link so that you receive an email to prepare for the session at lknedler@sad15.org.

School Spirit Fun: March 11 and/or 12 – Flannel Day

The Leadership Team is promoting school spirit, and this month the team is encouraging students and staff to wear flannel on their in-person and remote days to show their Patriot Pride.

Clothing Closet 

If your child has a need for clothing, we do have a clothing closet at the high school with new and used items.  Please contact Ms. Allocca, Tallocca@sad15.org

Drama Club

The GNG Middle School Drama Club is proud to announce two more virtual productions to be coming out later on this spring. 

We have auditioned students grades 5-8 and have casted for the shows: Virtual Complaints and Lemonade AND The Insomniac CyberSociety

Full of laughs and interesting characters, these shows are certainly going to bring some fun into our community’s living rooms. 

Show dates will be released at a later date, so stay tuned!
