Parents, We hope you and your student(s) enjoy the LONG weekend. We look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday. We wanted to let you know that we covered several topics with all students this morning - general logistical reminders that help us maintain a safe campus. One of the topics is AFTER SCHOOL hours and weekends. It is important that students exit campus in a timely manner unless they have a scheduled event (band/theater sectional, athletic practice, etc.). All students not involved in an after school activity should be picked up in car line or ride the bus home. Students with after school events should be picked up as soon as possible once the event/activity ends. Students are not to be "hanging out" on campus or inside buildings. This has been reinforced to all GMS students. Thank you as always for supporting us as we work together to effectively educate our students. Have a GREAT Friday
REMINDER: Gunter ISD will be IN School on Friday, 2/17. The day was set as a Health/Safety/Weather day, and now is a regular school day to make up the instructional time lost during the ice storm. Gunter ISD will be closed in observance of Presidents' Day on February 20th.

Gunter Football Fans! YOU have an opportunity to share in the STATE experience by purchasing a ring just like the ones our team will be receiving! If you would like to order a ring, come up to the high school this morning (January 6th) at 9AM. The representative will be here to help with sizing and take orders. We don't have a final picture of the ring at the moment as they are putting the finishing touches on the design. Just know that it will be fabulous 🙂 This is not a fundraiser, it is just an opportunity for you to purchase a memento.
Enjoy your New Years celebrations with your family and friends! If you are out and about tonight, please be extra careful on the roads!
Merry Christmas! ~ from our Tiger family to yours!
Tiger Family, We wanted to let you know that a Fed Ex truck has hit one of our football buses that was traveling to the football playoff game. EVERY STUDENT IS SAFE, AND NOT HURT. Our administration is working hard to divide the students and place them on the other two buses. Please don’t call or text the coaches or administration team. They are putting all efforts into taking care of the students. The charter bus driver is the only person injured in the accident, who we will definitely keep in our prayers. She has been transported to the hospital. Update: All students have been placed on other buses and are on the way to Abilene. The charter bus company will have another bus sent to Abilene to bring the kids home.
Coaches have moved the departure time... So, meet us in the north parking lot with your signs and cheering voices to send the football team off to Abilene at 11:00 AM (Today, December 9th)!
Don't forget that tomorrow, December 9th, Gunter ISD will release early so our teachers, students, and community members can travel to the football playoff game in Abilene. Drive safe! -GES dismisses at 12:05 PM/GMS & GHS dismiss at 12:30 PM. Carline will follow afterward.
Elementary and Middle School Picture Retake Day will be January 18th, 2023. More information will be distributed as the day gets closer.
Thank you to all our families that participated in the Annual "Toy Drive". Tomorrow is the final day for drop-off. This effort benefits families in our local community. A number of you seek opportunities to give anonymously. You can always email our Coordinator of Family and Community Services Kristy Colvin firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to privately assist a family in need during this holiday season. Thank you for supporting our students and the families in this community as we share in the spirit of giving during this holiday season.
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!
