GRCMS Classroom Connect — Fall 2020

GRCMS Classroom Connect
Fall 2020

Dear GRCMS Families,

I can hardly believe we have already moved into our sixth week of school!  We have been off to a great start and are enjoying the relationships we are building with your children!  We have definitely seen that God holds all things together! 

I am pleased to share with you important information that your child’s middle school teachers have put together to inform you about their classes and the curriculum they will work through this year.  We typically meet in person, but our hope is that through these videos you will glean much information about the year ahead. 

Please feel free to reach out to any of these wonderful and dedicated teachers with follow up questions or even just to let them know you are praying for them as they mentor your child.  You might find it helpful to open ParentVue and have your child’s schedule available to know which links to click on below.

Grand Rapids Christian Middle School receives funds from the federal Title I Program in order to provide additional services to ensure that all children have an opportunity for a high-quality education.  With the funds that we received, we were able to hire three Title I teachers for our building. 

At this time, Mrs. Colleen Grulke and Mrs. Hannah Scholten are designated to provide reading intervention for 5th — 8th-grade students and Mrs. Beth Hartlein is able to provide support for 7th grade and 8th-grade students in the content area of math. 

In order for the Title I teachers to work with students, we must have parent permission.  Please take just a couple of minutes to fill out the permission form so that these services are available for your child. 

Thank you in advance!
