  • Spring Musical- ALADDIN Jr.

    Posted by Christine Spurling on 11/20/2017

    Auditions for our spring musical, ALADDIN Jr., will be held December 4th-7th.  This is very popular among our students so we want to make sure that you all mark your calendars accordingly.  Students must be present on December 4th and 5th to be considered for casting. Call backs will occur on December 6th and 7th.  Audition materials will be available in the main office beginning Monday, November 20th.  Forms should be signed and returned to Ms. Bills by Friday, December 1st.  The show will be performed March 15-17, 2018 and rehearsals begin January 4th.

    This musical is the Disney Junior version of ALADDIN.  The characters that we all love from the movie will be in this show - Aladdin, Jasmine, the Genie, Jafar, Iago, the Sultan and more!  There are many opportunities for the chorus to participate throughout the show as shop keepers, townspeople, guards, etc.  And, we need a tech crew to build and run the show!  If you want to join us on this magic carpet ride, grab an audition form in the main office and come sing and dance for us on December 4th and 5th!

  • Stop, Drop and Read

    Posted by Christine Spurling on 11/13/2017

    GMS students and faculty will be participating in our annual Stop, Drop and Read program on Monday and Tuesday, November 20-21.  Everyone is encouraged to bring a good book to school or get one from the library before these days and be ready to Stop, Drop, and Read!  The first 10 minutes of each class period students and faculty will quite literally stop everything and read!  Please help us be successful by reminding your student to have a book with them on these days.  Teachers will in turn be encouraging students to complete their chosen book over the Thanksgiving holiday.

  • Not receiving parent emails?

    Posted by Christine Spurling on 10/9/2017

    Dr. Bishara sends out the parent newsletter via email/Parentlink each Friday and teachers routinely send group emails. If you are not receiving our emails, please check with guidance to be sure we have your correct email address on file. If you are still not receiving our emails, here are some tips that might help those come through to your account:

    Many of our emails are sent to large groups of students and or guardians. Your spam catcher could be kicking it out since it is going to so many addresses.  Here are some things the sender can do to help that:

    • Check your junk mail frequently to see if you have cps email in your junk folder and retrieve it from there.
    • Add “” as a safe domain.
    • Add teacher email addresses to your address book for those teachers who are sending mass emails.
    • Check to be sure you haven’t inadvertently added ‘CPS’ to your junk mail for blocking.

  • 8th Grade iPad Update

    Posted by Christine Spurling on 9/15/2017

    8th graders have now had their iPads for about 3 weeks and things seem to be going well.  Here are a few reminders for 8th graders

    • The 8th grade keyboard case does not have removable keycaps. Students should not take the key caps off of the keyboard as it will damage them from being used.
    • If you haven’t created a charging station and plan at home to charge, please set this up with your student.
    • Teachers are expecting the iPads to be charged so they are prepared for class each day.
    • If your student hasn’t updated their iOS to 10.3.3 please ask them to do so. We are finding that this update is solving a lot of the issues we are having with iPads.

    • Students should always carry their iPad with BOTH parts of their case attached for maximum protection.

    Students may bring in iPads before school during morning study hall from 7:05 – 7:21 am each morning for iPad help.  Please contact the media center with any comments or concerns you have with your students iPad.

  • iPad Not Charging?

    Posted by Christine Spurling on 8/28/2017

    If you are having trouble getting your iPad to charge, please look in Settings and see if you need to do a software update.  All iPads need to be updated to 10.3.3 in order for our new keyboard cases to charge properly. If you still need help, please visit the media center.
