GLMS Principal's Corner

2018-19 is shaping up to be a phenomenal year!

I am excited to be working with all our families and students.  Our staff has been busy over the summer learning how to infuse critical thinking and problem-solving in their classrooms.  

We are excited to continue to provide a Chromebook for each student at the Middle School. This has been a great collaborative tool to help students work together and delve deeper into their learning. 

GLMS is continuing to focus on helping to create leaders throughout our building. We are in our fifth year of our Leader In Me process. We are hoping that by now, the 7 Habits have become a part of all of our students’ lives. If you are interested in learning more about the 7 Habits and Leader in Me, please contact me.

2. Begin with the End in Mind – Clearly defining my goals and purpose in life will ensure success.

3. Put First Things First – Being accountable and responsible for who you are and what you do.

4. Think Win-Win – Respecting one another; treating everyone including yourself with dignity.

5. Seek First to Understand – Making decisions and choices in an open-minded and respectful manner.

6. Synergize – Realizing that if you are a successful student on the GLMS team, you will need to work cooperatively with everyone.
