**ELLIS ISLAND TRIP FOR 8B
Trip tomorrow is postponed on 10/27. A makeup date isThursday, November 3.
Due to the possibility of icy roads in the morning, and the overall forecast for inclement weather, we are postponing tomorrow's Team 8B Ellis Island trip. The new date will be Thursday, November 3rd.
We apologize for the disappointing news, but feel that tomorrow's weather forecast would at best, take away from the enjoyment of the trip and, at worst, present a dangerous travel situation.
The students will be spoken to by Mr. Mazzotta during school tomorrow.

IMPORTANT STUDENT PICK UP INFORMATION dismissal.docx
Good Day Parents and Family Members,
As HALLOWEEN approaches, please be mindful of encouraging appropriate dress at school. We will be speaking to your children at school about the need to balance fun with safety and maintaining the integrity of the education environment. Student décor cannot cover the face and must not be disruptive to the learning environment in any way.
On Friday, October 28th, GFMS has its annual "Black and Orange" Day. Students are encouraged to dress in orange and black colors during school and attend one of our two after school functions on the 28th as well.
Grades 5 and 6 students will be having their Halloween Social from 2:30-4 PM. Students were sent home with an informational flyer on Thursday the 20th. The cost of this event is $5. Students must have the signed page of the GFMS Planner turned in to their homeroom teacher in order to attend. In addition to the outdoor student pick-up that day, we will also open the gym at 3:45 for parents to wait and receive students. Due to the high volume of parents and children who will be on campus, parents may not wait in the lobby and hallways. Administrators and chaperones will be on hand to guide you to the proper location that afternoon.
From 7:00 - 9:00 pm, 7th and 8th graders are invited to the Halloween Dance. The theme for the dance is black and orange. The cost of this event is $5. Only GFMS students may attend this event. Students must have the signed page of the GFMS Planner turned in to their homeroom teacher in order to attend. In addition to outdoor student pick-up that night, we will also open the gym at 8:45 for parents to wait and receive students.
