GMS 6th graders were fortunate to be able to hear Mrs. Kimberly Arcand speak about her work with NASA's Chandra X-Ray Observatory. Awesome photos and presentation!
She also spoke about her experience as an author - additional inspiration for all our budding writers!
Thank you for taking the time to share your amazing experiences with us!
March 29. "Hallway Wars"
Each team at GMS had to: decide on a theme...plan it...gather materials...and make it happen for Hallway Wars III! There was amazing creativity and teamwork throughout the school today when teams showcased their work. Sapphire students showed an incredible effort with plenty of planning and excitement for their theme: Haunted Mansion! Can you believe that this was all assembled in less than 30 minutes? What an amazing "crew". We are so proud of our students, their teamwork, and their kindness. Super job, everyone!
The Science Scoop!
Regular updates of class news are posted here...
IN CLASS we are continuing to study the interdependence of living things in ecosystems. We will end the year with our investigation of symbiosis.
HOMEWORK should be written daily in the student planner. It will also be posted on the school homework page (link at the bottom of this page). A shared Google Calendar will be used to provide an additional backup for assignments in their paper planners. As we move forward, these tools will continue to help students as they learn and grow in their independence, planning, and overall time management.

May 2nd and 3rd What a fantastic 2 days we had! The salmon release days were fantastic and now the fry are in their true home. While we enjoyed watching them develop and grow, it was really great to see them off and on their way to their new Wood River home. Check back - more photos will be posted soon!
