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

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. GMS Choir students who are allowed to come to the choir room at 3:30pm have already been given special passes to do so.

Attention all 7th and 8th grade girls. Girls soccer try outs will be held Wednesday, January 8th, and Thursday, January 9th, after school until 5:30. If interested in trying out, you must stop by Coach Sindt's room in 808 during excel and sign up. You must have a physical on file or order to try out. If you have any questions please see Coach Sindt in room 808 or Coach Mahoney in room 514.

Hey Tigers! Come out and support the Gorzycki dance teams this Friday and Saturday night at their annual winter show. The show begins at 6:30. Don't miss it!

Chromebook Information

Dear Gorzycki Parents

I hope you and your students are enjoying the new chromebooks. I have seen many teachers incorporating daily use of this technology in their classrooms, and it is very exciting!

The technology team has a few reminders regarding chromebook usage and storage.

1.Please make sure that your student is using the district issued carry case or a protective sleeve for their device. We have already had several screens damaged due to improper handling.

2.Beginning Tuesday 10/15, if students are not using their district issued carry case or a protective sleeve, students will receive lunch detention.

3.Students should restart their Chromebooks at least once per day.

4.Please remind your student to charge his/her chromebook each night so it's ready to use at school the next day.

Thank you for your continued support as we implement Everyone:1 on our campus.
Respectfully,

Whitney Black
Gorzycki Middle School
Assistant Principal
