On Friday, November 10, students at Griswold Middle School will participate in a 2
mile fun run to benefit the Connecticut Veterans Home of Rocky Hill. This agency
provides long term care to Veterans with a variety of chronic and disabling
conditions. All students are being asked to complete and return the form at the
bottom of this flyer along with $2 to their homeroom teacher in order to participate.
Forms and payment are due by November 3. We are hoping for 100% participation
in this event. Additional donations in the form of cash or checks, made out to
GMS-SAF, are also welcome. All proceeds collected will be donated to the
Connecticut Veterans Home of Rocky Hill.
On the day of the event, students will be escorted from GMS to Elm Ridge Park in the
morning, participate in a brief opening ceremony to honor our Veterans, compete in
the walk/run by grade level, and return to the school in time for lunch.
*Math Test Change* Due to picture day periods 1, 2, 3, & 7 Chapter 1 test will be Monday, October 16th.
On December 8, 2017, the sixth grade will take a field trip to see a live performance of “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens, at Hartford Stage. The cost of the field trip is $30 per student. As the performance time is 10:30, students will not be able to purchase lunch in the cafeteria. We ask that each student bring a bagged lunch and a drink to school that day so that they can eat as we return.
Please return the permission slip and an envelope with the $30 payment by October 10th. All checks should be made out to GMS-SAF.
