School Announcements
Second Quarter Student Schedules
Please note that a student’s schedule may reflect a change in the teacher or hour of Titan Power Hour.  This is a part of the GMS Response to Intervention plan that helps to provide appropriate academic, social, or emotional support.
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.
PTO FUNDRAISER
The Fall PTO Fundraiser will begin October 9th and run through October 20th.  Pick-up date will be November 18th at GIS 3-6 pm.

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.
