Thursday was Orientation day for the class of 2031 up at GMS. We had an unbelievable time singing, eating, listening and laughing with our incoming 6th graders. Kids enjoyed some intense field day activities, then headed to GMS to practice locks, take tours of the school, have some Q&A with 8th grade leaders, and eat a "big kid" middle school lunch. We can't wait for 2024-25 so we can welcome these amazing students to GMS!
