Attention ALL STUDENTS!!  GEMS is hosting a FIESTA NIGHT to benefit our sports program.  It will be on October 18th.  In order for it to be a success WE NEED YOU to sell tickets to the event!!  Check out the table in the quad during lunchtime starting TODAY to see how you can help.


Fall Picture make ups are coming on September 28th.  They will be held during PE and this would be for ANYONE who has not been pictured yet this year.


From the Sports Desk: 

Last Thursday, GEMS had our second league meet in Auburn.  It was a beautiful day for a race with cool temperatures and a great course.  Athletes ran well and we had some more runners with qualifying times. 

  • For the 8th grade boys our top runner was Izzy with a time of 10:36. 

    The other qualifiers for 8th grade were Jair, Ryan, and Eddie. 

  • The top 8th grade girl runner was Hannahwith a time of 11:14. 

    Alison and Alana also ran under 13 minutes.

  • The top 7th grade girl was Mia with a time of 11:38. 

    Other qualifiers were Melia and Shyla. 

  • Finally, our top 7th grade boy ran a smokin time of 9:51 and that was Dylan. 

Other great times were run by Logan, Jared, Kenny, and Justin. 

Great running by all!  Our next meet is on Tuesday at Cavitt.


Attention all 6th, 7th, and 8th graders interested in playing softball for GEMS, there will be Monday practices from 1:50-3:30 during the months of October, November, and December. The first practice will be held on Monday, October 1st on the First Street field. Only 7th and 8th graders can play on the team, but it would be great to have some 6th graders learn the game and help out at practices.  This year, girls who play fast pitch can also play for the school.
