News & Announcements

Gorzycki MS Cafeteria Pricing

GMS Families, There have been questions about the cafeteria and pricing. Attached is a price list. Here at GMS, students can enter the cafeteria line more than once. Which means more than $3.15 can be spent each day. Families may restrict student purchases. Please let your child know if this is done so that when the cashier tells your child they can't purchase something your child will understand why. If you have specific questions about your account, you may contact the cafeteria manager at gorzyckicafe@austinisd.org Thank you _____________________________________________ ​Cathryn Mitchell, Ph.D Diane Gorzycki Middle School Principal


Daily Student Announcements Wednesday, December 4, 2019 Good Afternoon Gorzycki Tigers Here are your announcements for today: Hey Tigers! Our second annual GMS service project is in full swing! This week we are collecting donations for our service projects that we will be working on next week. Don't forget to ask your parents if they have received their sign up and remember to bring in your donations. Help us make this years’ service day a great success!!! Thank you! Really Tigers? Have you looked at the lost and found by the gym? If not, I’m not sure how you could miss it because it is overflowing with lost items! There are GMS agendas, water bottles, binders, jackets, and so much more (there are even lost shoes in the pile!). Please go take a look before you leave for the day, your lost item is probably there. All unclaimed items will be donated to a local charity in 2 wks. GMS Choir students are reminded they are required to wear their uniform & report to the commons on today for the 2019 GMS Winter Choir Concert. Glee students will report to the commons at 6:00pm tonight, but all other choir students will report to the commons at 6:30pm for warm up. Students, faculty, & staff are invited to come hear the sounds of the holidays at 7:00pm tonight as the GMS & Bowie HS Choirs perform some of your favorite tunes! GMS Choir students will need to report to the choir room at 3:30pm on Thursday to pick up their choir fundraiser. Even if a choir student is absent, someone must come pick up their fundraiser since it is perishable.
