Hello GSMST Community!
Our spring semester has gotten off to a great start so far and the best part has been…no snow days (so far)! As you may already know, GCPS builds in three make-up days for inclement weather each year. This year, those days are 2/16, 3/13, and 5/21 (in priority order). In the absence of any missed school, our current school calendar will run as published. The official date for graduation will be publicized in March.
I want to personally thank all parents who made time to visit GSMST on the evening of January 20th for the PTSA-sponsored Q&A session. It was my pleasure to spend some time with you answering questions and discussing the present and future of your school. We will repeat this event next year. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns about your student’s experience at GSMST, please contact us so we can help.
The GSMST Science Fair takes place on Thursday, January 29th, and our marquee event of the year – International Night – will take place on Friday, January 30th, starting at 6:00 p.m. This PTSA-sponsored event will be appropriate and enjoyable for the entire family, yours and mine.
Upcoming events include: (1) our school’s official roll-out of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) on January 29th, (2) the lottery drawing (Class of 2019) on February 9th, and (3) two early release days on February 25th-26th which will operate just like the two days last September.
Thank you for your support of our school and the encouragement you provide to your students to succeed and thrive in our high performance culture.
Have a warm winter!
