“A Christmas Carol” at Hartford Stage
December 5, 2016
This letter is to remind you of our field trip scheduled for Wednesday, December 7th. We will be attending Hartford Stage’s production of “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens. We will be leaving Griswold Middle School at 9:30 a.m. and returning at approximately 1:00 p.m.
The school cafeteria will be closed when we return, and therefore students must bring a bagged lunch and drink. Please be aware that students will not be able to purchase any food or drink items from the cafeteria.
We would also like to remind parents and students that we will be representing GMS and Rocky Hill at this function and will expect that students dress and behave appropriately. Gum and/or candy of any kind is unacceptable on this field trip. Also, students may not bring any electronic equipment, cameras, money, or other valuable items.
Therefore, please make sure your child is prepared for Wednesday’s trip as follows:
- A bagged lunch and drink (no glass bottles or candy)
- Appropriate dress
- No electronic equipment, cameras, or other valuable items
The sixth grade teachers are looking forward to this exciting trip and are anticipating a wonderful experience for all!

Today students on the Burgundy Team received their user names and passwords for a web-site called IXL. This web-site offers unlimited math practice in thousands of skills that are aligned to the Common Core. Students will use this web-site in school but they are strongly encouraged to use this web-site at home.
Students in periods 1, 2, 3, & 7 were also given usernames and passwords to access their math book on-line. Follow this link to access the web-site.
Please let Mrs. Litke know if you have any questions regarding these web-sites.
On Wednesday, December 7, 2016 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 11th. All checks should be made out to GMS-SAF.
