Dear GSD Family,
I wanted to thank and especially compliment the GMS staff who have poured their hearts out in love and compassion over the last two plus weeks, to support the family of a beloved GMS 7th grader, who recently lost his life in a tragic accident. I was honored to be able to attend on Tuesday, with the staff and GMS students, the celebration of life ceremony for this young man, on what would have been his 13th birthday. The stories shared by students and staff about their friendship and interactions with this young man were very moving. I told Principal Ann O’Connell, they will remain with these students for the rest of their lives. Ann did a tremendous job in guiding, supporting and leading the GMS students and staff over the last couple of weeks during this very difficult time for the students family, the GMS family, and in communicating out to all in the GSD family.
