8th Grade Students Only--Chromebooks

This year, every 8th-grade students will be assigned their own computer on September 26th. Through the EVERYONE:1 initiative, students were allowed to take that computer home. The current computer is an 11" convertible Chromebook that functions as a laptop and a tablet. Accessories include a charger and a case.

For your student to proceed with the Everyone:1 program, a parent/guardian must go to the online form within the parent cloud before September 24th. This form must be completed by September 24th in order for your child to be assigned a Chromebook to be taken home. Simply go to https://my.austinisd.org and after logging in, search for the "device" tile.

Please carefully review the Everyone:1 handbook for useful tips and background information of the program. The handbook is available at https://tinyurl.com/y3rk4hdh

For more information on the Everyone 1 program, see https://www.austinisd.org/technology/everyone

Again the deadline for parent permission is September 24th. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

Thank you,

Cathryn Mitchell, Principal

Tiger Technology Drive Fundraiser!

The Tiger Technology Drive is Gorzycki's only annual school-wide fundraising campaign. In lieu of several fundraisers or asking students to sell anything, we simply ask for direct donations from parents, grandparents, guardians, and community members. 100% of the funds will go directly to OUR school!

The purpose of this three-week NO HASSLE Technology and Curriculum Drive is to create a fund available to all Gorzycki teachers to supplement that which is provided by AISD. Our 2019-2020 goal of $20,000 will support all Gorzycki students and teachers with technology upgrades, teacher professional education, funding for classroom supplies, and other software or materials needed to allow GMS to continue to be AISD's #1 Middle School.

Please visit our website and donate today!
