I have an amazing story I wanted to share with our community. A few weeks ago, our PE teachers Ashley Scheetz and Taylor Cashmore asked Mary Jo Gehnert- Dawson County Disaster & Emergency Services Coordinator, to come into our health classes and teach basic life support interventions to our students. This included teaching the Heimlich maneuver. Fast forward to last week and we had a 6th grade student who began to choke on a piece of food in the lunch room. Our students sprung into action! One ran to get a teacher and the other two did the Heimlich maneuver removing the blockage and potentially saving this students life! When I was told that this had happened I was very emotional. First, at the potential loss of a student. Secondly, at the initiative our staff took to teach our kids these potential life saving skills. Third, at the response of these kids to jump into action for a classmate in need. These three students: Caden, Logan & Marty are heroes and deserve to be recognized as such (pictured with Mr. Cashmore). So proud to have the opportunity to work with such great staff and students!

What advice do you have for students? We all make mistakes, and we all have our failures. Don’t be to hard on yourself when they happen, just learn your lesson and keep your head up!

Just a reminder for everyone to continue to do the following things so that you can protect your student and everyone else. We have to all be in this together to #KillTheNorovirus. 1. Wash your student's clothes, jackets, backpacks, etc. 2. Clean your house with bleach or another product that takes care of the Norovirus (remember, disinfectants don't work on the Norovirus). 3. Make sure everyone is washing their hands frequently with soap and water (hand sanitizers do not work on the Norovirus). 4. Keep students home 48 hours after they no longer have symptoms. We know that it is really difficult to do some of these, especially number 4. We appreciate everyone's continued effort with keeping our schools and community safe. Have a great weekend! Go #68! #GPSCommunity

Did You Know: The symptoms of Norovirus: Diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, stomach pain, possible: fever, headache, body aches. You can spread the Norovirus after you get better. The Norovirus is still being produced in your body after you get over your symptoms. Even once you feel better, you should still stay home at least 48 hours after. This is vital if we are ever going to get this virus out of our community. #KillTheNoroVirus #GPSCommunity

Hello, this is Stephen Schreibeis, the Superintendent at Glendive Public Schools. As I am sure you have heard, our community is battling the norovirus among other sicknesses. Because of this, GPS is taking steps to keep our students and staff safe. School will be canceled on Monday, January 27th. This unprecedented step has been taken to help give our students and staff time to get better, to thoroughly sanitize our buildings, and to try to stay ahead of it moving forward. We want to make sure that we are able to kill the virus in our schools so that we can continue to keep our school environment as safe as possible. Please understand that the only way that this virus will go away in our community is if every individual takes the steps seriously that the Health Department has sent out to everyone. Please review the message that the Health Department has sent out on their Facebook Page and website if you have not already. Glendive Public Schools has also posted this information on our app, websites, and Facebook Pages. We know that the virus will keep cycling through our community and schools if people do not follow these guidelines. We appreciate your assistance in keeping our community safe and healthy. Thank you for your understanding.

The Dawson County Health Department is requesting the assistance of community members in doing their due diligence in preventing the spread of Norovirus circulating in our area. Just because you have had Norovirus once, it does not provide you with immunity. Within three weeks, you could get it again. Norovirus symptoms include nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Preventative measures include: Hand Hygiene – wash with soap and water NOT hand sanitizer. Hand sanitizer does not destroy the norovirus. Disinfect - contaminated surfaces including laundry with chlorine bleach. Launder – contaminated bedding and laundry should be washed with hot water, detergent and bleach Protect yourself by wearing gloves when handling soiled items. Food Prep – do not prepare food for at least 48 to 72 hours after symptoms end. Stay home – Do not return to work or school or childcare for at least 48 hours after symptoms resolve. If symptoms persist or worsen, follow up with your healthcare provider.

Update on WMS gym floor: While trying to assess and resolve the initial problem which was the source of the buckled gym floor, it was determined that the quantity of leaking pipes was greater than originally believed. Due to the condition of the pipes and, to ensure the restoration is properly completed, we have been working with; our insurance company, two restoration companies, two plumbers, and two flooring companies. Upon assessing the extent of the damage, additional leaks were discovered around the gym area as well as the identification yesterday (12/5) of mold in the boy’s restroom (foyer of the gym). Precautions were immediately taken to quarantine the gym foyer and restroom area until a mitigation specialist can further assess the situation. Our goal is to immediately and properly rectify these issues so as to resume normal activities at WMS as soon as possible. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mark Goyette (WMS Principal) at 377-3288 or Stephen Schreibeis (GPS Superintendent) at 377-5339.

So the WMS Golden Rule Ambassadors met this morning and we learned about the evolution of social media and why it was originally formed.

Bad news again regarding the floor at Washington Middle School. We had some valves that we estimate are 70 years old, leak under the gym floor. When we turned on the boilers here a few weeks ago, the water then started to evaporate and rise into the wood once again buckling the floor. We have had plumbers in to remove the valves and fix the leaks, a mitigation/restoration company in to dry things out and western sports floors in to evaluate the damage to the floor. We were hopeful that the mitigation was going to return the floor buckling to normal, but unfortunately there wasn't any change in the conditions. The end result is a gym we can not use for any contests until repairs are made. All girls basketball home games will be played at DCHS unless notified otherwise. The WMS Wrestling Mixer scheduled for Nov 21st will be cancelled as DCHS is not available that day. We apologize to everyone for this inconvenience as we work through this issue.

NOTE FOR 6th GRADE PARENTS: On Friday, September 27, 2019, the 6th graders will participate in a service project. We will leave the school at 9:30 to pick up litter at the practice football fields, baseball fields, and Lloyd Square Park. We will be returning around 11:00 for a picnic lunch at the school. The WMS cooks will make sack lunches which may be purchased just like a regular hot lunch, or your child may bring a lunch from home. Students should wear appropriate clothing, and they may want to bring along a disposable water bottle. Garbage bags and vinyl gloves will be provided. If students desire, they may bring garden or leather gloves from home, but please make sure they are labeled. We look forward to serving our community.

NOTE FOR 7th GRADE PARENTS: On Friday, September 27, 2019, the 7th graders will be heading out at 9am to clean up around the fairgrounds before a community event this Saturday, pick up litter between the fairgrounds and the Cenex gas station, along the highway from the Trail Star to the Alliance Church, and from the Dawson County Vet Clinic and Berg Tire to Eyer Park. We will picnic in Eyer Park around 11:30am, play some games, and then walk back to WMS over the Bell Street Bridge to return to WMS before the 1:18pm early release time for that day. Students should wear appropriate clothing and bring a backpack or cinch bag if possible. Each student will be given a sack lunch provided by the school, unless they want to bring a sack lunch from home, a bottle of water, a garbage bag, and vinyl gloves for the day. Students may bring garden or leather gloves from home as they would probably stand up better. Please label them on the inside of the cuff. We have Sharpie markers if needed. Students may bring an additional bottle of water to drink from home if they think they will need one. The temperature is to be cooler with a high around 55 degrees. This will be a service project for the 7th grade. We look forward to helping out our community. GO DEMONS!!! #WMSDEMONS #GPSSERVICE #WMSAWESOMIZERS

School is just about upon us! With all of the construction still ongoing outside of the school on N Meade Ave we wanted parents and the community to be aware of what our plan is here at WMS before school and after. If you are dropping your student off or picking them up we are asking parent/guardians to use Dodge street on the N side of the building. This parking lot will be solely designated for parent/community parking (along with handicap) while the construction is still ongoing. Students will then walk around the building to the playground on the backside until the bell rings. Our staff will park on the playground on the far S end. This area will be coned off. THIS AREA IS NOT FOR COMMUNITY PARKING BETWEEN 7-4 pm or pick up/drop off. The community members who have been displaced by the construction are welcome to use the parking lot as we have allowed all summer as long as they are out by 7 am (our first students arrive around 7:15 am). Please stay SOUTH of the orange cones we have set out when you park and exit through the west exits. Buses will drop off on N River Ave in the morning and students will walk onto the playground from there. Buses will be picking up on the WMS playground so it is vital that students are not walking outside of the designated cone area for safety reasons on the playground. This includes students being picked up. Please do not park on N River Ave to pick up your child if at all possible (Use Dodge St). I have been told that they hope construction will be done on the N Meade in front of our school about 2 weeks from now. We ask for your patience during this time. We are EXCITED to have your kids soon! GO DEMONS!!! #WMSDEMONS #GPSCommunity #WMSAWESOMIZERS

The TIP members have officially launched "AT WMS, KINDNESS IS CONTAGIOUS!" Thanks to the Glendive PTA using funds raised from our fundraiser earlier this year, they were able to purchase red and white bracelets with the positive message written on them. Each TIP member was given a bracelet with the intention of passing the bracelet, and message, on to other students and staff members. Any time a TIP member observes a kind deed toward another person, they take off their bracelet, and give it to the person who committed the kind act with an explanation of why they are receiving the bracelet. Those people are then encouraged to pass the bracelet on to others they observe doing something kind toward another as well...because at WMS, KINDNESS IS CONTAGIOUS!

Mrs. Miller is absolutely a WMS Awesomizer who always is the first to volunteer to help out and always tries to keep a positive, uplifting attitude! Mrs. Miller....YOU ROCK!!! What is your favorite food? Mac & Cheese---All Kinds--All Flavors! What is your favorite thing to do away from school? Well naturally I like to read! I also like to binge watch Netflix. I also like to coach/play volleyball, do yoga...there are just so many things that I enjoy doing! What is your favorite part of working at WMS? I absolutely LOVE being in the library and helping students find that perfect book! It is a fun challenge for me and I love it when we can find that perfect book/reader fit! The people at WMS (students and staff) are also wonderful! It is never a dull moment! What advice do you have for students? This is for your whole life: If you have questions, ask. There is nothing wrong with admitting that you don’t know the answer or you don’t know how to do something. You are always surrounded by people who are here to help you. Teachers are pretty amazing, but we aren’t mind readers! What is your favorite quote? “I believe, every day, you should have at least one exquisite moment.” -Audrey Hepburn

Glendive Public Schools has been working on getting our automated system working for absences. We will start our new system tomorrow, April 11th. If your student is absent, and the school has not been notified that they are excused, you will receive a call from our Notification System (377-9385). There will be two calls a day, morning (10:00) and afternoon (4:00). We want to make sure that you are aware of the absence and if you are aware, that you are reminded to call in to the school to excuse the absence. We thank you for your patience as we work out the kinks of this new system. If you have any questions, please contact the office of your child's school. Thanks!

For those of you who are not aware, WMS is running a fundraiser for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society called Pennies for Patients. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is the worlds largest nonprofit fighting blood cancer. This topic is very important to us here at WMS as we have multiple staff members who have fought these cancers and won! We hope the funds raised can help others who are currently battling cancer. Today was our first collection day and our students/staff brought in $306.97! I am very proud of everyone for rallying behind this cause (The top home room earns a pizza party so I think that helps the motivation a little bit)! The fundraiser will have 2 more collection dates on 4/2 & the final one will be on 4/5/19. Any businesses who would also like to participate are encouraged to get in touch with Mr. Goyette at 377-3256. We appreciate any/all support!

Buses will not be running tomorrow morning because of the snow. As with any situation, the safety of our students is the utmost importance. If a bus happened to get stuck, we do not want to have students standing outside waiting at their bus stops in the cold temperatures. Buses will be running tomorrow afternoon, as we feel the buses will be able to maneuver better by then. As with any situation like this, if you feel it is not safe to get your kids to school, please call the school and let them know. We feel it is important for parents to have a choice and make the final decision for their student. Please know that these decisions are not made lightly as we know these situations can be an extreme inconvenience for many families. Thank you for your understanding in this difficult matter. Again, buses will not be running tomorrow morning but will be running in the afternoon. We will also be continuing our early release schedule in each school with parent-teacher conferences from 2:00 - 8:00 pm. Thank you!

What an amazing culture of kindness at Washington Middles School! Our tree grew from one simple act of kindness to over 100 acts of kindness by our students/staff!! The tree was put together a few weeks ago by our Pre-K teacher Mrs. Damron to teach our kids about random acts of kindness. #WMSDEMONS #GPSCulture #BringBacktheGoldenRule #BeKind

Parent/Guardians, We wanted to share some information with you regarding something that we have be informed a few of our students are participating in. The “Pass Out” challenge is where people attempt to make themselves momentarily pass out by depriving their brain of oxygen. It is NOT a safe activity as many young people believe: * According to the Center for Disease Control, 1,400 children and teens have died from this activity from 2000 to 2015. * Starving the brain of oxygen can cause: ~Seizures ~Brain Damage ~Coma ~Death ~Accidents Concussions may occur from someone losing consciousness and hitting their head on a solid object. A teen died from losing consciousness and then fell on glass slicing his throat. * Please remember that social media does not, many times, provide you with accurate and factual information. We want our kids to be educated and we will be sharing this information with them tomorrow in home room to attempt to better educate them to the risks. We care about every one of our students and their safety is one of our biggest priorities! If you have futher questions about this, please feel free to contact Sherri Nissley- School Counselor or Mark Goyette- Principal.

We had an awesome assembly today called the "Tour of Kindness." Two of the main messages were your words can make a difference for someone else and people that are different than you are still people and should be treated as such. They also addressed using social media in positive ways instead of negative. Mr. Schreibeis then followed up the presentation by addressing both the MS/HS student body about being an AWESOMIZER instead of an AWEFULIZER!

Buses will not be running this morning because of the extreme cold temperatures. As with any situation, the safety of our students is the utmost importance. We do not want our students standing outside in these extreme cold situations. Buses will be running this afternoon as the temperatures are supposed to warm up by then. As with any situation like this, if you feel it is not safe to get your kids to school, please call the school and let them know. We feel it is important for parents to have a choice and make the final decision for their student. Please know that these decisions are not made lightly as we know these situations can cause extreme inconvenience for many families. Thank you for your understanding in this difficult matter. Again, buses will not be running this morning because of the extreme cold. Thank you!

I just wanted to inform you that there was gas smelled in the office at Washington Middle School. The building was evacuated to ensure that everyone was safe. Both MDU and the Fire Department were called. There was no gas detected anywhere when investigated. I want to thank the building administration and staff for taking immediate action and keeping our student's safety their number one priority. As is standard protocol, we will take precautions like this when we think that our students could be at risk. We will continue to try and inform everyone as soon as we are able in these types of situations. Thank you!

We just want to inform you that we have found a sewage line break at Washington Middle School under the south part of the building. This line is an original sewage line that has been in place since that part of the building was constructed in the 1930’s. The break is not affecting the entire building, just the south part. Due to the break, we can not use the restrooms, sinks or drains on any of the floors on that part of the building. We have relocated multiple classes because of the smell to those rooms. The Glendive Fire Department has assured us that there is no safety risk for our students/staff to continue our regular operations. We DO have functioning bathrooms and sinks in other parts of our building and the kitchen was not affected by this leak. Lastly, we have had to cancel our pre-K classes for the remainder of the week until this issue is resolved or we can set up another part of our building to accommodate their needs. We will be continuing to work through this issue and hope to have everything back to normal operation as soon as possible. We will continue to try and keep everyone informed about these types of situations. Thank you!

7/8th girls basketball and wrestlers need to bring their uniforms/equipment/practice gear to school on Wed, 12/19 and turn it in after school. The coaches are not WMS employee’s and are taking time off away from their jobs to come to the school and get the equipment checked in. It is vital that players are there after school on 12/19 to get the stuff turned in. If this is not possible, please contact the coach and make other arrangements to get the equipment turned in.

Sixth grade math students are learning how to compute the mean, median, mode, and range using Skittles. They are collecting data from their own bag of Skittles and then from a partner. Then the two partners collect from another two partners. Then the group of four collects and organizes the data and continues to find the mean, median, mode and range. The group of four finds another group of four for the final computations. The students were then allowed to eat the Skittles after completing all the math work. GO DEMONS!!! #WMSDEMONS
