Parent Information

9/16/21 Update

Notification from: Gilford Middle School

Good afternoon.  Well, the first week of school is in the books!  I am sure that everyone will enjoy sleeping in tomorrow morning.  And despite our struggles with managing the scheduling software, students seemed really happy to be back.


With a slight time change, our Open House is next Thursday (9/16) from 4:30-5:30.  This is an opportunity for your child to show you where their classes are and introduce you to their teachers. Unfortunately, a couple of our coaches will not be in attendance as they’ll be, well, coaching! This is not a time for a parent conference, however. The parent conferences will happen in November but you can certainly reach out to your child’s teachers anytime to chat about their progress.


Once again, we have a couple of locally sponsored essay contests that students can choose to compete in if they choose.  I will give them to our social studies teachers to share with students. The two contests are, “What does it mean to love your country?” sponsored by the Elks Lodge and “How can I be a good American?” sponsored by the VFW.


Next week’s events:

  • Monday = Boys A/B Soccer at WRMS (3:30/4:30); Field Hockey at WRMS (3:30); A/B Volleyball (3:30/4:30); School Board Meeting (6:00; agenda is attached)

  • Wednesday = Early Release (12:20); Cross Country Meet at Alton (4:00)

  • Thursday = Field Hockey (3:30); Boys A/B Soccer (3:30/4:30); A/B Volleyball at WRMS (3:30/4:30); Girls Soccer at Inter-Lakes (4:00); Open House (4:30-5:30)



Thank you and  I hope you have a nice weekend!


Take care, 


Peter





9/2/21 Update

Notification from: Gilford Middle School

Good evening.  Just a few more days for our students to sleep in!  It’ll be so nice to have students back in the building.


As mentioned earlier, we’ve had some issues with schedules.  With the exception of the PE/Band/Chorus/Study Hall block, the core and UA classes that you see on Alma should be accurate.  You can go to our website to register on Alma.  When you do, please be sure that the biographical information is up to date; especially email addresses and phone numbers.


Also, attached to this email is this year’s Parent/Student Handbook.  On Tuesday, we will send home with students the forms regarding medical information and Chromebook & Network Use forms for you to sign and return.


Please see below information regarding School Picture Day which is September 21.  We are using a new company this year, Geskus.


We had a great turnout today for our 5th Grade JumpStart program.  I want to thank you for taking time out of our day to bring them to school today.


I hope you have a great Labor Day weekend with your families.


Take care, 


Peter
