Welcome to the 2013-2014 academic year! On behalf of our entire middle school staff, I would like to congratulate all parents and students for a very successful 2012-2013 school year. We are proud of our successes and look forward to another exciting and productive school year.
Our vision at GMS is that our school community be informed, active, reflective, and generate conscientious citizens in the local and global societies. Our expectation is that every student will succeed, and it is our responsibility to provide a positive and safe learning environment with high academic standards.
All students will have access to highly qualified teachers, 21st century technology, and a rigorous curriculum that challenges, nurtures and honors the whole child.
We consider ourselves lucky to have the opportunity to educate the students of the Grove community. Our community understands and values education. Parents and guardians have unfailingly supported and participated in the learning process of our students. We welcome you to be a part of our educational family. Please visit our campus often and if you are able, we appreciate and welcome you as volunteers.
Our district has adopted the mission statement of T.E.A.M G.R.O.V.E. which represents the message: Together Everyone Achieves More through Growth, Responsibility, Organization, Values, and Education.
            If you have any questions or concerns don’t hesitate to call me at 918-786-2209 or send me an email at pndodson@ridgerunners.net.

Yours in education,
Pat Dodson
