Principal’s Greeting 2019-2020

November 2019 Update

It’s been an exciting and productive fall here at Gibbons Middle School. Each of our academic teams in 7th and 8th grades have participated in our annual fall field trips; 7th grade to Team Works and 8th grade to the Freedom Trail in Boston. Special thanks to our community for supporting the annual Magazine Drive. Gibbons Parent Group generously donates a portion of the proceeds from the drive to defray the cost of student field trips. Cross Country season was a big success with a number of student athletes scoring PR’s at the season ending Invitational Meet. Kudos also go out to the cast and crew of our fall play Roshambo. Some of the interesting classwork currently happening at GMS include Cape Cod Shark phenomena project in 7th grade Science, Foundations of American Democracy in 8th grade Civics, development of Mesopotamian civilization in 7th grade Social Studies, Gothic literature in 8th grade English and the introduction of the Open Up curricular materials in 7th grade math. Additionally, GMS is actively involved with our District’s Social Emotional Learning initiative; we are piloting SEL specific curriculum and focusing on best SEL classroom teaching practices.

We are looking forward to our Winter Concert series in early December and the closure of our first Trimester just before the Thanksgiving Holiday. All students will move on to their second term specials classes when we return to school on December 2nd. 

Let’s hope for a mild winter and no snow days!
