April 2016

Dear GMS Families,

We want to congratulate our new members of the National Junior Honor Society.  Fourteen students were inducted into the GMS NJHS on Thursday, March 31, 2016.  These students have demonstrated excellence in the areas of character, scholarship, leadership, service and citizenship.  We also want to thank the parents and teachers of these students for their support and presence.  A special thank you to Mr. Rodrequez, Assistant Superintendent and future Superintendent of Grandview C4 School District,  for giving the keynote address during our ceremony. 

On Friday, April 1, all students participating in our reading incentive and that have earned at least 300 points will attend an ice cream social.  Students will enjoy ice cream with their favorite toppings and afterward receive “open gym” time.  Our final reading incentive will be a trip to Worlds of Fun on Friday, May 6th.  All students that have earned 400 points will be able to attend the field trip.  The cost of the ticket to WOF is $21.00 not including lunch.  Students will be able to purchase food at WOF or can purchase a school lunch at their regular rate of pay.  Permission slips will be given to eligible students during the week of April 11th and will be due no later than April 20th with the cost of the ticket.

The final SRI, Scholastic Reading Inventory, will be given to students during the weeks of April 4th and April 11th.  Please encourage your child to do their very best on this reading assessment.  Students will be able to see their level of growth immediately following the test.  They will also earn points for the reading incentive based on their lexile score.

The musical, Shrek Jr., will be on Thursday, April 14th – Saturday, April 16th at Grandview High School.  The cast has been rehearsing and according to Mr. Levy, it promises to be one of the best productions yet for GMS. Please plan to attend in support of our thespians. 

The MAP test is coming, the MAP test is coming!!! On Monday, April 18th, students will begin taking the MAP test.  Sixth and seventh grade students will be tested on their knowledge of Math and English/Language Arts and 8th grade students will be tested on Science and English/Language Arts.  Eight grade students will take the Algebra 1 end of course exam in May.  Parents, please make sure your students get plenty of rest and eat a healthy breakfast.  Attendance will be of paramount importance during MAP testing, therefore, please make sure you child attends daily.

On Saturday, April 16th, from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm, we will have our first GMS Family Earth Day!!!  You are invited to celebrate Earth Day at GMS by helping us create an outdoor classroom space.  We have recently began this project, but still need help improving this space.  We will be spending time raking, cleaning up, and moving debris to make it more student friendly.  You will also be able to take a tour of the new area and see our newly created GMS community garden.  We hope you will be able to join us for this great event!  In the event of rain, we will reschedule for Saturday, April 23rd.  Please contact Ms. DeeAnn Moore at or 316-5648 if you will be able to attend.

Track season is in full swing.  There will be two track meets at Grandview High School in the month of April.  Please come out to support our athletes.
