On March 14th over 500 students assembled in the Guilmette Middle School gym to pump up the students for ELA MCAS. On hand were the cheerleaders lead by Sharon Cassily, the drum troupe led by Greg Tarbox and our MC - 7th grade teacher Bill Alves. The students watched a video about MCAS prep written and produced by 6th grade teacher, Sasha Duran, with the help of the Student Council. Roberto German, Assistant Principal, entertained the group with an original MCAS rap song. Additional talent included a variety of acts from each grade level; 8th Acceleration Step group, 5th and 6th grade rappers, and the 7th grade Pi Champion. Our mascot, the Guilmette Wolf got the crowd enthused and ready for the big test.
On Saturday August 10, 2013 the Guilmette Middle School held a “Claim Our School” Day where students, teachers, parents, and community members worked together to prepare the school for the start of the academic year. It was powerful to see all of these stakeholders joined for this important cause.
