Well, well, well. 👀 We know who is getting coal in their stockings this year!
Mrs. Galloway's room is giving us all the Christmas feels! 🎄Her students recently explored her Christmas children's book collection. They read to each other, played games, and found new books to look up for the littles in their life. ☺
📖 Here's another book recommendation from Mr. Walker! This book is in our Parent Center. It answers questions about the student/teacher relationship, techniques for more efficient use of study time, ways to improve reading/writing/vocabulary skills, how to do research, and how to prepare for and take tests. If you'd like to check out this book and others - click here to go to our GMS library page or visit our library today: https://www.gravetteschools.net/o/gms/page/library
It's almost time for our annual tradition of counting down the days until Christmas Break by having dress-up spirit days! 🥳 Please take a look at the calendar below and encourage your child to join in on the fun! Note: GDE/GUE are following a different calendar than GMS/GHS.
Right before the break, Mrs. Renaud's class finished their food lab on smoothies. The main goals were to follow directions, correct measurements, and make sure sanitation rules were followed. Despite the mess, our students rocked it!

Our 8th-grade science students made mouse trap race cars in Mr. Leach's class! They went to the gym and let them loose! The farthest recorded distance was 67 ft. All with some dowel rods, glue, rulers, CDs, string, and a mouse trap. Pretty impressive!

Congratulations to our Student Spotlight of the Week, Hayden Heller 🌟 Mr. Leach said "In my five years at GMS I have had many exceptional science students, but Hayden is proving to be one of the best students I have ever had. Hayden is smart, laser-focused, and works hard. He is also talented at the engineering aspect of our class and has shown his talents already with constructing objects such as our rocket for the rocket launch. He has shown an ability to think outside the box with our labs and projects. Hayden is an outstanding young man and I predict he will be successful in anything he chooses to do." 👏 Tune in after Thanksgiving Break to see who our next Student Spotlight will be 🌟
Fellowship of Christian Students had a fun meeting yesterday! Ava and Jaylea led the devotion. Will led the prayer. They played a fun game of “pin the feathers on the Turkey” and ate cookies. 😄 It was a great time of fellowship!
Yesterday, Mr. Boyd's computer science classes tried to crack the code on the microbits he coded! Students had to think outside of the box and do certain steps to get the microbit to sing a tune. Some of the steps included flipping the microbit over, turning it left/right, letting it freefall, and yelling at it 😆
Throwback Thursday to a few of our teachers and staff members when they were in school 🧡

Just in case you visit our front office anytime soon, Ms. Mali and Ms. Jodie are skipping Thanksgiving and moving straight to Christmas 🤣 Their reasoning is, "There are only 18 days to enjoy the Christmas decorations after we get back from Thanksgiving break....that's isn't enough time!" 🎄
Congratulations to our Student Spotlight of the Week, Emma Truman 🌟 Mrs. Rhea said, "Emma is always on task and helps others at her table group when they don't understand. She is so awesome!!!" When Emma entered the office and was told she was the student spotlight, she literally jumped with joy while clapping. 🥰 Tune in next Monday to see who our next Student Spotlight will be 🌟
