Good Evening Golden Ring Families

This is the Monday Message for our third week of school 9/11-9/15.

Each week (when there is school on Monday) you will receive a message from us with updates of upcoming events and news from GRMS.

Thank you:

We would like to THANK all of the parents, students, community members and families that attended our Back to School Night last Wednesday. It was a great success!

This week:

This week there is no school for students on Friday September 15th as it is a Systemwide Professional Development Day for Teachers & Staff and Rosh Hashanah begins.


Have you checked on your students grades yet?

Information on how to set-up a parent Schoology and Focus account can be found on the BCPS website at:

We have a new timeline and guidelines for grading. Teachers should be grading and providing feedback to students each week. Students who turn in assignmnets by the due date will recieve feedback and a chance to redo assignments (except for tests or curriculumn assessments)
