Greetings GKMS Families,

There are a variety of clubs that will be starting this month.  One of the great experiences of being a middle school student is trying new things.  I encourage every student to get involved in their school.  One way to do that is to join a club.  Please see the Club Descriptions and Information document for a description of the upcoming clubs that will be starting in September.  There is no cost to attend any clubs at GKMS and they are open to all students.  Please see the GKMS website for the calendar of events and access to current newsletters and other information.  Don’t forget to check out the grade level and Encore newsletters below.  

As always, please feel free to contact me any questions at or call me at 815-784-5222.  Have a great holiday weekend!
