Good Day Parents,   Happy summer!  There is lots to do during the summer months and our staff is diligently working to get us ready for the upcoming school year.  We will have some new experiences starting with a six cycle day, earlier lunch periods for all grades and a new time schedule.  As we complete our tasks, we will share information that is important for you to know.   You are invited to take a self-guided tour of GFMS from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm, August 21 through 24.

We also hope that you can spend some time reading with your students, as well as encourage them to complete their summer reading assignments.

We look forward to a successful 2017-2018 school year with our students.
