Dean's Corner

Good afternoon GEMS families!
We had a great first week of school and look forward to the year ahead. Thank you for your patience as we navigate both the busing issues and afternoon pick-up traffic. We hope to see progress on both ends.

Please note that 5th - 8th grade will be taking their NWEA MAP Assessments this week in Math, English, and Science. Starting Tuesday morning. This is just one way to measure students at the start of the school year in these subjects. Each test takes about one class period and only one test will be administered each of the three days, T-R.

Also, our first Family Crew meeting (a GEMS take on on what might look like a PTO at other schools) will be held in the school library on Tuesday night at 6:00pm. If you think you might like to get more involved at school, please come and join us.

Have a great week!
