Good Day Middle School Parents,

Welcome back from what I hope was an amazing holiday break. I would like to take a moment to welcome those who have recently joined our community, this new year. We are quite excited about what you bring to GDS, as well as what our community has to offer you and your families. This is an opportunity for us to learn and grow together. Go Bengals. Happy New Year!
