  • GMS Fight Song Contest!

    The GMS Fight Song music from the 1970's was recently found by our band director, Dr. Greene.  Unfortunately, the song does not have words.  As part of spirit week, we are having a contest to create the words for our fight song.  Spirit week is Oct. 22-26.  

    The 8th grade band has recorded the music.  Click on the link below to hear the recording.

  • Parent Workshops 

    Join us Tuesday September 18 for

    Pathways to Success: Workshops for Parents

    Workshop

    1- 5:00-6:00pm Restorative Practices, Mindfulness for Parents (Part 1 of 3) Workshop

    2- 6:00-7:00pm Executive Functioning, Mindfulness for Parents (Part 1 of 3)

     

    Workshops are for parents and guardians of 6th, 7th, and 8th graders at Gresham.

    (Note: There will not be childcare provided. If children come they need to stay with their parents and have something to do.)

    Workshop choices:

    * Restorative Practices-

    exploring what restorative practices are, why they are important, the ways in which Gresham is moving toward implementing restorative practices and how families can support this important work.

    * Executive Functioning-

    Executive functions let people plan, organize and complete tasks. Learn how to support your student develop these essential skills.

    * Mindfulness for Parents-

    This is part 1 of a 3 part course. The other required dates are Oct. 16 & Nov. 13. The course will also include on-line portions. Come to either the 5pm or the 6pm session. Both sessions will be the same. Parents will learn how to develop a personal practice of mindfulness, discuss ways of understanding and supporting our children and deepen a sense of Gresham community. We will use Dr. Dan Siegel’s book Brainstorm.

    Limited amount of copies available.
