Pasta for Pennies

More than 14.4million students and 10 million educators in almost 29,000 schools across the country are participating in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) School & Youth Programs, Pennies for Patients, Olive Garden's Pasta for Pennies, and High School Program. By participating, kids learn not only about the differences they can make, but they learn about leadership, teamwork, and what "doing good" for others can mean. Click Here for more information!

Attention Parents

Most after school activities (practices, club meetings, etc.) end by 5:30.  Because it gets dark around this time, students must be picked up by a parent/guardian.  For their safety, students are not permitted to walk home or to the library at dusk or after dark.

Congratulations Madison and family!

GLMS recognizes Madison for being invited to be the invoker at the SCPS School Board Meeting on November 18. Thank you for your leadership Madison! We are proud of you.



SCPS is ranked #1 of the 17 largest districts in reading, mathematics and science. I am very proud of our incredible students, I am thrilled for our hard working teachers, administrators and staff and am cheering for our incredibly supportive community” stated SCPS Superintendent Dr. Walt Griffin.

In an era of increased statewide assessment and accountability, SCPS students continue to outperform the state in Reading by 10 points and 12 points in Mathematics. Students, parents, and teachers have a reason to celebrate this success and the tremendous effort put forth this year to reach for standards of “proficiency” and beyond, as defined by the State of Florida.

Part of the reason for that success is our progress based monitoring efforts, which allow us to provide personalized instruction to all our students. As many are aware, progress based monitoring is required three times a year by the state in reading. In addition, SCPS also utilizes progress based monitoring for both science and math in an effort to improve student achievement through identifying skills that help determine a student’s strengths and allow us to focus on areas that need improvement.

In particular, we can not emphasize enough the hard work of our classroom teachers who continue to deliver exceptional instruction to all students. Their work and planning translates to performance measured on mandated statewide assessments but it goes beyond just “testing.” They prepare our children for success in the 21st Century and the data overwhelmingly supports it! This is why SCPS continues to remain one of the highest achieving school districts in the state.
