Guilmette Middle Events

Guilmette Building

Hello families. We hope you are staying safe and feeling well. As you know last week we distributed many devices to our families. Throughout this week our teachers have been working very hard to prepare lessons for students to begin to start participating in. Students can begin to access multiple assignments through Google Classroom in different content areas. Starting next week between the hours of 9 AM and 12 PM, teachers will be available on Google classroom to assist students and answer any questions about the material. Teachers will not be available on Friday due to the Good Friday holiday. If you have any questions or concerns please call the schools phone number 978-722-8270 between 9 AM and 1 PM. Be well.

 

*Your student should only complete work for their regularly assigned classes. If they do not have a teacher or class on the list, they do not need to complete the assignments under those categories.*

GLM_NaturesClassroom1

Many GMS 8th graders attended the Nature's Classroom overnight field trip in Groton, MA the week before Thanksgiving. Students and teachers left Monday morning and spent two nights in the woods, returning mid-day Wednesday. The overall goal of the trip was to encourage students to learn by engaging in entirely new and unfamiliar experiences in the outdoors. Students experimented with shelter building, rocket design, civilization modelling, and snake dissections, and then enjoyed more relaxed time in improv classes, singalongs, and meal time. On Culture Night, students learned traditional dances, and in team building activities, they learned how to work together through new and difficult challenges.

GLM_Fishman

Fishman Transducers, a guitar tech company in Andover, just donated hundreds of dollars worth of equipment to GMS!!!! We have the privilege of using their high quality portable sound system (complete with a standing speaker, a mixer, and a subwoofer), a guitar equipped with their new TriplePlay technology (which allows us to play different sounds through computer programs using a guitar), a mini amplifier, and acoustic guitar pick-ups!!! This generous donation will allow us to expand our music program by allowing for more exciting songwriting, more professional in-class performances, and access to top of the line equipment. We are so grateful, and we can't wait to show the Fishman company and the Lawrence community how we will use these tools!

GLM_MuseumOfScience

Last week, our 8th graders took a field trip to the Museum of Science and Harvard in Boston. At the museum, they explored all kinds of experiments, studies, and hands-on activities. Pictured is a group of students attempting to reconstruct the human body. Students were also able to experience a real bed of nails, a rollercoaster simulator, a space capsule, and learn about the science of sound. They returned to the Guilmette with new information and a new love for the wonderful world around us!

GMS_MentorMentee

At the Guilmette Middle School, students have the opportunity to engage in several different after school activities. This picture shows students working at the mentor-mentee after school program, which runs every Monday from 3:30- 4:30pm. The mentors are helping out newcomers on how to adapt to this school culture and they are also helping them out with their math-science homework.

Students can also join knitting club, art club, bucket drumming, Helping Hands, and many other activities.
