Welcome GMS 2018 Eighth Graders!

This year is going to be filled with many interesting learning opportunities!  Our “On the Crest of the Wave” blog will be your source for information as we work together.  You will need to check the blog daily and share important news, assignments, and updates with your parents/guardians. We look forward to a positive and exciting school year with you!  ~  Ms. Colley & Mrs. Davis


“Waves are the voices of tides. Tides are life,” murmured Niko. “They bring new food for shore creatures, and take ships out to sea. They are the ocean’s pulse, and our own heartbeat.” ~Tamora Pierce, Sandry’s Book
