December, 2015

Dear GMS Families,

Happy holidays!  It is hard to believe December is already upon us and we are half way through the school year!  During the month of  November, our Robotics team competed at a local qualifying tournament and received an award for having the most creative solution to solving a “trash” related problem.  They also finished in the top half of the robot games competition and as a result qualified for the KC regional competition at Union Station in January.  This is the first time a Grandview C4 school has qualified for the KC regional in Lego League robotics!!!  Congratulations to Mr. Reese and his robotic team and thank you to all who sent plastic bags to help our drive.  If you get a chance, please stop by the school on Wednesday December 9th at 8:15 am.  I will be getting a pie in the face for receiving the most plastic bags in my box during the drive.  It will be great fun!  

In November, a letter was sent home sharing changes made during passing periods in order to maintain a mannerly transition between classes so that all students feel safe while walking through the halls of GMS.  Students are being escorted to and from their classrooms during the day with limited time in the halls.  Our purpose is to instruct students in hallway expectations by modeling responsible behaviors throughout the day.  Our students have responded positively to this change and many students and staff  have commented on the positive climate of the building.  Thank you for your support as we continue helping our students develop lifelong habits of respectable behavior in scholarly and professional environments.  

Our Reading Incentive will end on December 18th for first semester.  Please talk with your child to see if they are earning the number of points to attend the field trip to the College Basketball Experience.  The cost to attend is $9.  Students that qualify for the field trip will receive a permission slip upon our return from Winter Break.  The field trip will take place on Thursday, January 14th.

Winter sports are in full swing and we invite you to attend our basketball games and/or wrestling matches.  Cheerleaders perform at all home games.  

At Grandview Middle School and within the Grandview C-4 School district we have committed to show continuous improvement through data-driven decision making, allowing students to look at and set goals to increase learning, to challenge students to think critically and creatively and incorporate ways for student to be problem-solvers. The Grandview C-4 motto is “Educational Excellence, Unlimited Potential” and at Grandview Middle we believe that all students have unlimited potential for greatness and can reach their goals of excellence.

I hope you all have a great winter vacation filled with love, peace and joy!
