GMS 8th Grade Parents and Students: Today we sent home with our 8th graders the permission form for the 8th grade trips. This will be a two-day trip to celebrate our 8th graders. Remember that all students must meet the eligibility requirements that we outlined in April in order to attend. Please have your student return these forms to their C3 teacher on Monday, May 15th. GMS will be taking all 8th grade students that have met our Behavior & Academic Expectations on a 8th grade Field trip! On Wednesday, May 17th, Students on the Blue Team will go to Millenium Park, where they will receive a sack lunch for a picnic. After the picnic, we will take the students to the Danville bowling alley. They will get to bowl two games! Students on the Red Team will go to Danville Cinemas. Students will also receive popcorn and a drink. After the movie, they will return back to school for pizza and lunch. Blue Team will be leaving the school around 8:30, they should arrive back at the school around 2:30. Red Team will be leaving the school around 8:15, they should arrive back at the school around 11:30. On Thursday, May 18th, Blue Team and Red Team will flip their field trip locations. The cost of this trip will be covered by the school. Due to space, GMS teachers and staff will be the only chaperones on this field trip.
