Eight Houses: Positive Encouragement

Valentine's Day falls on our E-Learning day so we had to celebrate a little early! The House of Amistad held a heart-designing contest to get everyone in the spirit for their Day of Friendship. Students could design the heart out of any material and we were pretty impressed with their creativity. Congratulations to our winners!


8 Houses, One GSMS, and One Community! We implemented the house system at GSMS because we wanted to help foster a sense of community within our school. We had no idea the impact it would have in fostering relationships within our town as well. Eight businesses in our community decided that they wanted to have a part in this new initiative at our school and chose to sponsor a house. Thank you so much to the businesses listed below for giving back to our community.

It's been an exciting three months since we began our journey with the House System and the positive impact it has is undeniable. The sense of community, healthy competition, and camaraderie has transformed our school into an even more exciting place of learning and growth. We are thrilled to announce the current standings and extend congratulations to our top point earners! But remember, it's not just about the numbers – every achievement, every act of kindness, and every display of sportsmanship counts, and we're proud of each and every one of you!



We had so much fun celebrating World Dream Day today! This day is a great reminder to dream big dreams so we can make positive changes in our lives and in the world.


The House of Sollevare put together a great National Day of Encouragement! They created uplifting messages and gave them to fellow students/teachers and put them around the hall. House members Emily and Alex made a school-wide announcement about how to celebrate the day. Other house members even showed up in yellow to support. It truly is 8 Houses...One GSMS!


National Day of Encouragement! Sollevare, the House of Upliftment, is so excited to celebrate this day and uplift the people around us. The members of the House of Sollevare will be wearing their yellow tomorrow to celebrate so join us and wear something yellow or gold. Tomorrow make sure to give a high five to someone and cheer them on, take notice when a friend is getting close to a hard-earned goal, or give a call or text to someone telling them they are doing a great job. It is the little things that matter so make sure you let your people know you're there cheering them on!


Take a look at the current house standings! The House of Friendship is currently in first place. Teachers have the ability to give points to any student or a house as a whole. From art competitions winners to the kind student who takes a moment to help someone else out, everyone has the ability to earn a point and get recognized for their awesomeness! We’re loving the excitement from the students about our new house system and can’t wait to see all the great things that are going to happen this year.


Sollevare, the House of Uplifting, achieved a jaw-dropping almost 70% PERFECT ATTENDANCE throughout the entire month of August! Can you believe it? We couldn't be more thrilled to announce that Sollevare emerged as the TOP house in attendance for August!

Hats off to each and every one of you who made this incredible feat possible! Your commitment, dedication, and understanding of the true importance of showing up have truly paid off! Whether it's the early morning classes, the after-school clubs, or the engaging house events, you've shown that you're not just students – you're shining examples of perseverance and unity!

Let's take a moment to celebrate not just the numbers, but the SPIRIT that lies behind them. It's about fostering a sense of community, encouraging each other to succeed, and pushing the boundaries of what we can achieve TOGETHER! So, here's to the relentless pursuit of knowledge, the unbreakable bonds we've formed, and the vibrant energy that defines House Sollevare! Let's keep this momentum going and make September an even more remarkable month! Remember, every day is a chance to learn, grow, and make a positive impact!
