“We shall never learn to know ourselves except by endeavoring to know God; for, beholding His greatness, we realize our own littleness; His purity shows us our foulness; and by meditating upon His humility we find how very far we are from being humble.” St. Teresa of Avila (Feast Day Oct 15th)

GSCM Student Ambassadors
We are excited to announce that our GSCM Student Ambassadors for this year are
Natalie Blackburn, Mary Gruber, Katie Koenig, Laney Olszewski, and Ben Sabo!
A Student Ambassador at GSCM is a Middle School student who will represent our school positively and help build community within our school. Student Ambassadors are asked to participate in the Gala, Open Houses, and other school-wide community functions. They are also asked to provide new students with an introduction to GSCM by giving them a tour of the school, helping them with their locker, introducing them to their teachers, and providing them with a familiar, friendly face at school.
GREAT JOB GSCM!!
Thanks to everyone who donated time, talent and money to the Walkathon. Together, the students at GSCM met their Walkathon fundraising goal of $8,000! All students won a “Fall Field Day” which will take place on Grandparents Day beginning at 11:15am. Group activities will go from 11:15am-noon. Students will then bring their lunch outside (weather permitting) so all students can eat together beginning at noon.
Students had several incentive awards during the Walkathon. Below is a list of winners:
Students who showed the most Walkathon Spirit from each class- won lunch with Ms. Dohmen:
Total amount raised will be published in the next week or so!
Fall is a busy time and we have some additional volunteer needs over the next few weeks. Volunteers are still needed for Grandparents Day (morning of Oct. 23). The children earned a “Fall Field Day” which will also take place from 11:-00 -12:00 on Oct. 23. We need parents to help supervise. We also need folks to send in picnic blankets. Finally, we will be having our Book Fair the week of November 2.
