What's Happening at GRMS
Congratulations to Hanna Beale
for winning an honorable mention in the county-wide State Attorney Anti-drug Poster Competition.
She wins a cash award and her work will go on a poster with other winners. The competition gets over 1000 entries from all over Baltimore County so this is a big deal. Also, this is the 2nd year in a row we have had a winner in this competition.
Golden Ring Middle School will be hosting our Art for a Cause Art Show Fundraiser forAutism Awareness Month on Wednesday, April 19, 2017. The Art for a Cause program is a student driven program that allows students the opportunity to use their artwork to make a meaningful change and bring awareness to concerns in the community. An event such as this encourages a stronger school-community bond. I am elated that our school program has made a positive impact in the community and has service so many organizations.

To register, please contact Rai Cary at 443-809-4496 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Children are welcome to attend.
When: The five new session classes will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 12 noon each Tuesday beginning March 7, 2017, and ending on April 4, 2017.

A spring session of the workshops will begin on Thursday, May 4, at the Owings Mills branch of the Baltimore County Public Library.
We plan to open several Lice Clinics throughout Baltimore County. Our first clinic will open next month at 604 Providence Road, Towson, MD 21286. These clinics will treat and eliminate the lice with heated air to kill lice and eggs through dehydration. This is a revolutionary alternative to treating head lice with pesticides, herbal lice remedies, suffocation products or lice combs.
Below are a few interesting lice facts
- Lice has been around for thousands of years - Cleopatra was buried with a gold lice comb
- Lice affects 1 in 20 kids
- Kids miss more than 24 million days of school each year due to lice
- The over the counter consumer lice products business is over $350 million and the products are only 45% effective
