8th Grade Parents- Congratulate your 8th grade student and express your pride and love with an ad in the 2015 yearbook!
November is one of those months that always sneaks up on me. It seems school has just begun and then it’s Halloween—and before I can blink it’s Thanksgiving.
It is the perfect time to pause and let you know how grateful I am that I get to come to work every day and spend time with your children. In my humble opinion, middle-schoolers possess the best traits of humanity—curious, passionate, empathetic, adventurous, humorous, and bold—just to name a few. I honestly believe that if pay we close enough attention to the words and actions of our students, we can solve many issues that we all face.
I am also grateful for the amazing teachers and staff that work at GRMS. I have never worked with more dedicated people who genuinely care about their students—both their academic and emotional well-being. Roaming the halls between passing periods I consistently see teachers standing outside their doors, welcoming students in, sincerely happy to see them. It’s one of the elements that make GRMS such an incredible school.
Lastly, I am grateful for such an outstanding parent community. Families who want the best for their children continually support us, both financially and academically. Our students continue to amaze me, but that cannot happen without the love, support and guidance they receive at home.
I hope you all get a chance to pause over the next few busy weeks—and take the time to recognize the beautiful gifts that surround us.
