Grade 4 Parents
update for GFMS Parent Orientation:
As you know, we are planning our
parent orientation for the Grades 4 to 5 transition on the evening of May 12th.
We have three separate activities happening during the orientation. To make the
evening efficient and easier on our families, we will be using the following
schedule of events:
5-6:45 PM, PTA Tours of GFMS
6-6:45 PM, Band/Orchestra parents in the large cafeteria
6:45-7:45 PM, Administration Presentation in the Auditorium
7:45-8:30 PM, Questions and Answers with Administration
This schedule should give you the
ability to customize the evening and partake in the activities you feel are
most appropriate for your family. We look forward to seeing you on the 12th.
