• New Chromebooks

    Posted by Lisa Shaw on 11/13/2020 3:00:00 PM

    Next Thursday, 11/19/20, all 8th graders will turn in their current Chromebook and receive a new device.  We will do this through our ELA class.  You must have your device and all parts of the charging cord in order to receive your new one.  If you have lost or missing parts of your charger you can pay $25 in ADVANCE on My School Bucks and either print the receipt or have a screenshot to show you paid.

  • Tuesday, October 13, 2020 Virtual Class

    Posted by Lisa Shaw on 10/7/2020 12:00:00 PM

    Good afternoon Germantown Middle School family. I hope everyone is having a great week. I want to remind parents that Monday, October 12, 2020 will be a holiday and the school will be closed for the day.  I want to clarify how Tuesday, October 13, 2020 will look for instruction for our face to face students. Germantown Middle School will run a distance learning “A” day for students who have been reporting to GMS daily. Face to Face students will stay at home on Tuesday, October 13, 2020 and log in to a scheduled TEAMS conference. Teachers have trained students how to log on in their regular classes. Virtual enrolled students that have not been reporting to the school will log on to Canvas at the regular class times for a pre-recorded lesson. Face to Face students will follow the following schedule: 


    October 13, 2020, Tuesday A day  


    1st block starts @ 8:30  

    2nd block starts @ 10:00  

    3rd block starts @ 12:30  

    4th block starts @ 2:00  


    Please email teachers with any concerns. 

    Wednesday, October 14, 2020, will be a “B” day at GMS.
