  • GBEMS 1st Annual Book Swap
    Need to clean out some bookshelves? If you have any “gently used” books at home that your child has read, he/she can bring them to school from Monday, May 4th to Friday, May 15. Teachers will have boxes in their classrooms for book collection.

    This is a great way to get some “new to you” books for summer reading, and, best of all, it’s FREE! There will be a school-wide book swap May 21-22.
    “Gently Used” – books that have been read a couple of times, pages not ripped or folded; no writing or coloring in the books – books should still look new!
    Sponsored by GBEMS Student Council

The survey gives parents of students receiving special education services the opportunity to provide feedback on their school involvement and provide comments on their child’s school. This type of parent input is critical in determining if the district will meet the requirements for the state’s Annual Performance Report. The parent survey is available online at or To request a hard copy of the survey, contact Marty Massimo, FDLRS Parent Service Specialist at or 793-2723 x2043.
