November News at GMS

We have started the second quarter of the school year, my how time flies!  The 2018 Parent-Teacher Conferences are being held on Thursday, November 1 from 3 pm to 8 pm and again on Friday, November 2 from 8 am to 1 pm.   Conferences are held in the George L. Kidd Gymnasium in an "open court" format.  There is no need to call and make an appointment with us, just come at a time that is convenient for you.  

The start to the second quarter of the school year marks the end of some things and the beginning of other things.  At this point, the "newness" of school has faded and students, as well as families, have gotten into the routine of school.  Kids are routine oriented and tend to do well when they are familiar with their routine.  Arrival to school, the school day, after-school activities, arrival back at home, supper time, and homework time are all things that could make up a student's routine.  Make sure to monitor the things that make up your child's routine to ensure they are benefiting from them.  If the routine is not working then brainstorm ways in which you can "tweak" the routine to better serve your child.  For suggestions on ways to improve or "tweak" your child's routine consult with your child's teachers.  

The second quarter also marks the beginning of new things as well.  Winter sports is the main addition to the school year that typically start during the second quarter of the year.  At GMS the winter sports season consists of the following activities:  basketball, cheerleading, Pom-Pons, and Scholastic Bowl.  If your child is involved in these activities or others during this time of year make sure that they are keeping these activities in perspective.  These activities are all great to be a part of but they do not stand alone.  Kids that participate in extra-curricular activities are still students first and foremost and should always make sure they are dedicating the appropriate amount of time to school work.
