GMS New School Year - Message

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!

Dear GMS School Community, 

Our recent summer annual Open Door Day events have been very successful and exceptionally well attended. Meeting our new students and families always makes the tedious work of building the scheduling matrix satisfying  as students come back into the classrooms and corridors and breathe life into the building again. 

I’m pleased to introduce our new-to-Gibbons and returning staff to our school community.

New to Gibbons Middle School

Craig Robbins, Band

Lauren Giguere, 7th grade Science

Xi Li, Mandarin

Taylor Wentworth- Special Education

Kaila Therrien- Speech Language Pathologist


Lisa Martin Math tutor

John Zywien - math tutor

Rich Lord- 8th grade Purple team math teacher

Key Nahid- paraeducator

Eric Knight- part time Spanish teacher and paraeducator

I am happy to share that our district is introducing a new communication platform, ParentSquare, This is a social media style application that provides a web-based portal and a mobile phone app. The user-friendly interface consolidates postings from our various schools and offices in one place, lets you configure your notification preferences, and provides two-way communication and language translation. 

Our custodial and maintenance teams have done incredible work over the course of the summer to get our school ready for the 2023-2024 school year and the facility looks fantastic. Kudos to the crew for their hard work. The first day of school for students is Wednesday, August 30. Please review this link to review important information regarding school routines and logistics at Gibbons Middle School. 

We are ready and excited for a new school year and will do everything possible to make it the best experience for all of our students and families. 

See you soon!


Mr. Foley and Ms. Stewart.
