  • PTSA Meeting - October 2

    Posted by Christine Spurling on 9/22/2018

    Our students are at that age where they want to spend most of their time in their iPads and put a lot of pressure on parents to get them their own cellphone. While we value technology and its use as a learning tool/entertainment, we also worry about the dangers to which the students are exposed online.


    Because we want you to be aware of these dangers and equip you as parents to protect your students, PTSA has invited Detective Tracy Perkins, from the Boone County Sheriff Department Cybercrime Taskforce, as the guest speaker in our next PTSA meeting on October 2nd at 6:00 pm.


    Detective Perkins will provide a basic overview of trends of what kids are doing online, and things that parents can do to be proactive. Her presentation will last about 20 min and she will give the opportunity to families to ask questions.


    Please, do not miss this important opportunity to learn about what our students are doing online and how to better protect them!

  • No Body To Murder – by Edith Weiss

    Posted by Christine Spurling on 9/22/2018

    Please join us for our fall performance: No Body to Murder. Our theatre department will be performing on Thursday, October 11 and Friday, October 12 at 7:00 pm each night in our very own GMS cafetorium. Tickets will be sold at the door for $5 per person.


    Bad news threatens the guests of the Come On Inn of Nova Scotia – severe thunderstorms and an escaped convict! By the end of the day, gung-ho aerobics instructor Billie Body is mysteriously murdered during a power outage. Was it the cook’s lemonade that poisoned her, or did someone else have a hand in Body’s death? Who would have the audacity to commit murder under so many noses? Inspector Black, on the scene in search of the escaped convict, has his job cut out for him. As the winds howl, suspicions range from Garth the gardener (who weeds with an axe) to an inept doctor on holiday from malpractice suits to a hairdresser who constantly changes her appearance. Everyone has a hidden motive to want Billie Body dead. After all, she does have abs “to die for!”

    Interstate Studios will return to Gentry on September 27th from 8-10:15 am to retake photos for those students who would like to have their photos retaken. If your student is having their photo retaken, they will simply need to bring their original photo packet and uncut photos to this sitting. 


    On this same day, we will also be taking photos of those students who missed having their initial photo taken at our Schedule Pick Up Night. Please be sure that your student has an order form (located in the main office) and money with them to give to the photographer that day. If you have any further questions, please contact Inter-State Studios at 573-449-3090.

  • Student iPad Homework - Update to. 11.4.1

    Posted by Christine Spurling on 8/31/2018

    Now that everyone has their iPad, you need to be sure your software is up to date. In order to do this, click on Settings, then click on Software Update on the right and let it check for an update. If it says you need to update, PLEASE do so. This will help keep your iPad running to assist you with your academic success.  The current version that you want to be on is 11.4.1.

    Students have been informed that they have one week from the date of issue to inform the media center of any problems with iPads and/or cases. We are extending this date to Monday, September 10 for everyone. Please look over the device with your student. If there is any damage to the iPad or case, please notify the media center. If the damage is cosmetic, we will put a note in their record for the end-of-year turn in. If something is broken, we will get it fixed. After September 7th we will consider all iPads in good condition and any future damage will be assessed to the student. For a copy of the CPS damage device policy, please see this:
