DISRUPTION of Hurricane Irma….

WHEW!  Hurricane studying isn’t until we start Weather in a few months… but Hurricane Irma sure taught us some lessons…  THE FIRST time in Atlanta Area’s history we’ve been under a hurricane warning!!!  Our students are a part of an amazing history of local weather!

We are collecting Hurricane HELP items for Hurricane Harvey, and now Hurricane Irma relief!  The items the students may bring are:  SOAP, TOOTH PASTE, TOOTH BRUSHES,  & DEODORANT.. 

With all that said, WHEW, I’m glad that we’re all safe, healthy, and back at GMS! We’ve had to regroup a bit, put off some things until next week and add some things, also.  Check out the lesson plan blog entry, that’ll keep you posted.  Again, glad we’re all back and safe!!

Thanks for ALL you do!

ECLIPSE viewing was AWESOME!

We watched and successfully discussed with the students that stayed at GMS today,  with Kennesaw Mountain High School staff and students, NASA, and CBSN; amazing information and views.  We went back and forth and listened to all the interesting facts, and viewed amazing sights…  We’re all looking forward to 2024 for a couple different reasons, THE NEXT SOLAR ECLIPSE, and graduation for THIS 6th grade class!!


Getting back to normal, as normal as we can, is something I’m looking forward to tomorrow…. THANK YOU!
