Welcome to Spring! The weather is changing, the days are getting longer and the end of the year will be here sooner than we know. There is so much going on this month and so much to look forward to. First, if you missed last night's first ever Tech Night please do yourself a favor and mark your calendar for next year. We had an amazing array of technology on display--weather balloon, tech projects, databases, QR codes, technology in PE, graphing apps, robots, Google sites and more! Thanks to our dedicated teachers and staff, your students work with this technology every day. But none of this is possible without YOUR generous donations. Please help us update some of our devices by clicking here --our goal of $10,000 can only be met with your help.
At the last PTSA meeting I presented information on the upcoming CAASPP testing, which all students will be taking in May. Please refer to the PowerPoint presentation here for all the info.
I'd like to take time to highlight some awesome achievements of our students and staff:
Our Science Bowl team was awarded 2nd place during the competition 2 weeks ago.
Our student Kenneth K., was recognized for his volunteer work with a Prudential Spirit of Community Award.
Our 8th grade student Radith E. will be representing GRMS in the county level spelling bee.
Our 8th grade student Jerry O. will be representing GRMS in the state level geography bee.
Our very own Mrs. Kurtz has been recognized as the secondary teacher of the year for the SRVUSD!
