GMS- 6th Grade WEB Orientation- August 17th

August 13, 2010

Attention Incoming 6th Grade GMS Students!
Plan on attending the WEB (Where Everybody Belongs) Orientation on August 17th!
Where? GMS GYM
What time? 8:00 am - 1:00 pm
What about lunch? Lunch will be provided immediately following the orientation. Hot dogs, chips, and a drink. It will be a busy day, so please eat breakfast at home.
What shall I bring? NOTHING
What do I wear? Very comfortable, cool clothes. Shorts and t-shirts are recommended. We will be very active on this day. (You do not need to wear your uniform this day.)
What will we do? You will do several fun activities where you will meet other new 6th graders attending Grant. You will meet your WEB Leader (an 8th grade student) who will help you throughout the entire school year. Our hope is that you will leave the orientation feeling calm and confident about attending your new school and becoming a Grant General.
Can Mom and/or Dad join me? This day is geared for students only; however, parents are welcome to come to Open House the evening of August 19th. Please have a ride arranged so that you may go home at 1:00 pm or plan to ride the school bus home.
Don't miss it!
Your participation is strongly encouraged!!!
