Don't forget! Thanksgiving Holiday Reminder -- Gunter ISD will be closed November 21-25 for Fall Break. Students will not have school during that week. Enjoy this time with your family and friends!
GMS Lunch is only $3! And it’s good! Ask the kids!
Parents, I’m sending this on behalf of all the students that “bring” their lunch (they begged me to do this). Tomorrow is our annual Turkey FEAST. Our Food Service Department does it right! ALL THE TRIMMINGS. It’s a great time of food, fellowship, family for our staff and students. Send a “Lincoln” ($5) with your student tomorrow if they do not have a lunch account set up. And a reminder - No school Thursday. Go support the Lady Tigers at State!
The Lady Tiger Volleyball team will depart from the band parking lot at 8:30 AM on Thursday, November 17th. Get up early, grab your sign and bring your cheering voice to send them off in Gunter Tiger fashion!
Don't forget Daylight Savings Time Ends on Sunday, November 6th. Turn your clocks back an hour and enjoy an extra hour in your weekend!
Gunter ISD administrators are keeping a close eye on the weather. If the weather is not safe to send the students and buses out at dismissal time, we will hold the students and the buses until it is safe. If we decide to hold the students and buses at dismissal time, we will send an email via the district communication system as well as post to the website and social media platforms. Safety is our number one concern; given the decision to wait out the storm or send our students and faculty into a dangerous situation, we will always choose the safer alternative.
