On Friday, December 8, 2017, we had beautiful snowflakes fall outside the learning commons windows. I decided to record it, and Marshmallow World came on Mood Media. Perfect timing! The students were fascinated by the snow, and I thought it would be great to record it to watch any time we would like!
It’s a marshmallow world @GMS_Wildcats! Happy Holidays! Have a great weekend! Thanks students for sharing your excitement about the snowfall today. Stay happy and safe! ❄️❄️ pic.twitter.com/z004DiCvvJ

Wildcat Competitive Reading Club Parents,
The Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl Steering Committee is requesting that each school have a volunteer to help at the Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl. The parent volunteer would not work during the middle school competition, but rather during the elementary competition in the morning. Some duties may include hallway greeter or scorekeeper. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Sandra Davis: [email protected]
As part of the 12 STEM Days of Christmas, students can choose to create a green screen book review.
Watch 6th grader, Morgan L. talk about a “Christmas Afterall: The Diary of Minnie Swift” by Katherine Lasky.
