Good afternoon.  I apologize for flooding your inbox today but this Winter/Spring just keeps throwing us curveballs (yes, I am ready for the Sox to start!).

The last Softball Clinic will be held this Sunday in the GHS gym from 10-11:30(ages 8-13) and 11:30-12:30 (ages 3-7).  You may also register for the upcoming season at this time.

The first tennis meeting of the season will be on April 12 from 2:20-2:50 in our lobby.  The first “real” practice will be on the 13th at the tennis courts (hopefully) from 2:30-3:30.

This year’s 5th and 6th Grade After-School Social will be held on Wednesday April 19th from 2:20-4:00 here at the middle school.

The deadline for your child to submit their poem to the language arts teacher for the PTA’s annual poetry competition is April 18th.  Only one entry per student and the poem should be 15 lines (or slightly less) and, of course, original.

Time is running out to order your child the year’s edition of the GMS Silver Hawk yearbook.  Just follow this link to the Josten’s website to pre-order.

This week’s tip from the Middle Years*  Paper Chase  Do papers in your home quickly turn into piles?  Make clearing the cluter into a family project.  Sort papers together, deciding what to save and what to recycle, shred, or throw away.  You’ll teach your tween how to stay organized; and feel a sense of accomplishment together.

Next week’s events:

Monday – School Board Meeting (6:00); please see attachment for meeting agenda.  You can also go to the school district website for more information regarding policies.

Tuesday – Gilford PTA Meeting (6:30)

Wednesday – Early Release (12:20)


Thank you and have a nice weekend.
