Hello parents, guardians, and families!
I hope your summer is going well! Here is an update on some required paperwork we need you to complete prior to registration. As you know, all meals at GSD are provided free of charge to your children. THIS WILL NOT CHANGE. All meals for GSD students will be provided free.
However, there is paperwork we need your help with! The government will reimburse GSD for students who qualify for the federal free and reduced-price meal program. This allows GSD to spend more on educational and enrichment activities for your children. It does not matter if you don’t qualify for the free/reduced meal program—we still need your paperwork! All students will receive free meals at GSD, regardless of parent income.
What do you need to do? You will be receiving in the mail a form to complete. Instructions are included. Please complete the form and return it to GSD in the self-addressed, stamped envelope. That’s it!
A copy of the paperwork is below in case you need another copy. :)
Thank you SO MUCH for completing this important paperwork! Enjoy the rest of your summer!
Marie, Family Engagement Coordinator
The GSD Middle School Math Team competed April 13-15 in the Math Competition sponsored by RIT/NTID (Rochester Institute of Technology/National Technical Institute for the Deaf) in Rochester, NY. For most of the students, it was their first plane trip! They competed in both individual and team events and had fun in the evenings at social events. Our team didn't win, but they did their best, had a lot of fun, and learned a lot for next year! Team members: Zaydrian Clay (7th), Colt Franklin (7th), Nolan Johnson (8th), and Raul Real (7th). Coaches: Tiffany Brown and Loren Frick. Congrats everyone and thanks for representing GSD so well!
GSD students participated in the Special Olympics held in Rome on Thursday 12 April. There were lots of competitions and everyone had a really fun time--and got a little pink from the sun! :) Congrats to all the participants, whether you won a ribbon or not!
Our own Stephanie Ayala received a plaque honouring her for designing the Special Olympics event T-shirt! Great job, Stephanie!!
