Welcome to Gaithersburg Middle School
Shouldn't You Order A Yearbook Today?
Attention GMS! Yearbooks are on sale for $38 until January 30! Last year, too many students waited until the last minute and we ran out of yearbooks. Forms can be found outside Mr. Kang’s room or in the front office. Prices go up after January 30 so reserve your yearbook today! Order online now!
Cold Weather is here! SNOW BOOTS AND COATS NEEDED
Dear Gaithersburg Middle School Families:
The Linkages to Learning Program at GMS needs your help with the collection of gently used (and clean) winter coats AND snow boots for children, teens and adults. Please turn them in at the main office, where a box has been set up, or bring them to the Linkages office on the second floor, room 708. If you have any questions, or need a receipt upon your donation, please contact Alcira Aldana-Colón with the Linkages to Learning program at 301-840-2784.
