Principal's Message 

Welcome to the 2014-15 school year! GMES staff has already been working hard to insure that we get off to a smooth start and we cannot wait to have students back in our building. If you are a new family to GMES and Rochester we hope this site provides a picture of the activities, academics, and expectations that are the heart of our school.
This past summer we invested time in resources to increase the technology we put in the hands of our students on a daily basis. We have moved from two to four computer labs and have added a few classroom sets of chrome books as well as updating the PC’s that are a part of every classroom. This year we will be testing students online using the new Smarter Balanced or SBAC assessment that will replace the MSP.

GMES will once again provide Supplemental Educational Services through our before and after school program as part of the Adequate Yearly Progress requirement of the No Child Left Behind legislation. The first go-round of Pioneer Academy will take place in October. Our first parent-teacher conferences will also move to October this year.

On behalf of our staff and community we welcome you to GMES. If you have questions please feel free to contact me at school or follow the link to my email. Remember, Everybody Wants to be a Pioneer!!-
