More

The administration of the school also sponsors four programs to improve student citizenship and academics. The “Respect the Paw” program teaches the values of good citizenship and good character. These values include; respect, responsibility, honesty, effort, unity, attitude and maturity. Respect the Paw, Pawsitive Character, Respect the Bus & our Role Model of the Month programs have been established to recognize our students for their acts of good citizenship and teach our students about the importance of unity, respect and friendship. Technology is evident throughout our building. Classrooms are equipped with overhead projectors, computers and document cameras. Additionally, GTMS has two technology labs, a collaborative learning lab, twenty-three mobile labs and a technology instructor that focuses on the latest programs and modalities for student usage. These technological advances increase student comfort with technology but also keep GTMS on the cutting edge of student learning.
