November is traditionally the month when thanks are given, and we have a tremendous amount to be thankful for. First, I would like to express gratitude to all you parents and guardians who continue to support the changes we have made here at GRMS. “Rolling with the changes” is rarely an easy task, but you have done so with aplomb. I know it’s only four weeks into Tutorial, but I am confident that every student will benefit from this program. Anecdotally, I have heard positive comments from both students and parents and as we refine the process I expect to see on-going success for our kids. Of course, Tutorial would not be possible if not for all the tireless work put in by our amazing teachers and staff. They have taken the title of “educator” to heart; they have, and will continue to make an indelible mark on your child’s future by ensuring they learn the essential skills needed in high school and beyond.
You can continue to support our efforts by ensuring that your child has signed up for a Tutorial offering each week by using the Plus Time website at: galeranch.pltime.net
Students may begin to sign up for Tutorial as early as Wednesday at 5:00pm. If they are assigned a mandatory tutorial, their teacher will sign them up on the Plus Time website and you will be able to see this by Wednesday at 5:00pm. Our expectation is that all students are signed up for their Tutorial by Friday at 3:00pm.
I would like to wish every one of you a safe and family-filled Thanksgiving!
Sue Goldman, Principal
