GMS Dress Code
Welcome Warm Weather!  Please encourage your student to follow the GMS dress code as found on page 23 of the student handbook.  We have been making weekly announcements to remind students of the guidelines that include examples of unacceptable attire that includes clothing that reveals undergarments, tops that expose the shoulders, cleavage, or midriff, short shorts and skirts.  If a student is in violation of the dress code, a parent/guardian will be contacted to bring in acceptable attire. Progressive  discipline will be assigned for repeat offenders.  Please contact the GMS administration if you have any questions.

Fin-Tastic!


“We may be different, but in this school we swim together!”
Glenwood Middle School’s Theme this year is based on Fish! , a book written by Stephen C. Lundin.  Students and Staff are working on the following components, which support the PBIS philosophy:
 
 
Choose Your Attitude-The attitude you have now is the one you are choosing.  Is it the one you want?
Be There- Be fully engaged in the moment
Make Their Day- The world becomes a better place the moment you act on an intention to serve.
Respectful Play-It’s not just an activity, it is a state of mind that brings energy and sparks creativity.
 
Check out all of the Fish on display at GMS as we “reel” everyone in to practice these healthy habits!
 
 
What is TPH or Titan Power Hour?
  • Time to receive interventions, which may include academic, social, or emotional support.  In other words, interventions that help further teach strategies that may include math skills, reading skills, or even classroom skills like staying focused and keeping organized
  • Titan Time activities that focus on character education and the PBIS goals of be respectful, responsible, and safe.

SCHOOL LUNCH
The GMS Cafeteria offers a variety of lunch items each day, including a la carte items.  Please be aware that a la carte items are not part of a "Type A" lunch.  Any student who wishes to eat a la carte items will be charged for them.



END OF DAY RELEASE PROCEDURES

In order to ensure that students are following staff directives and to further facilitate student safety, we have changed the end-of-day release. Our new procedures are as follows:

·               All students who participate in extra-curricular activities, walk home, or are picked up from school will be dismissed at 3:32 p.m. 
 
·               Students who ride a bus home from school are to stay with their ninth hour teacher until an announcement is made that their bus has arrived.  
 
Please know that students are being monitored so that they have enough time to go to their lockers, get their materials and get to their buses on time.  We appreciate your support in relation to these new procedures.
 


DELIVERIES FOR STUDENTS
 

In order to ensure an orderly and safe environment, the delivery of balloons, flowers or other similar items to students is not allowed.

 

    

 

Regular School Day hours are 8:29 a.m. - 3:32 p.m.
Students can be dropped off after 7:45 a.m.
