Greenwood Lakes Middle School is fortunate to have outstanding teachers and staff.  I thank them for their dedication, efforts, and support in helping out students learn and achieve.  A special thanks to our new PTSA Board, SAC, Partners in Education, and our dedicated group of Dividends.  Please continue to be involved, because without your involvement, Greenwood Lakes Middle School would not be as successful as it is.  We have had a great year because of our teachers, staff, parents, and students.


As we approach the end of the school year, please remember:

- Report Cards will be available in June in the Front Office.  Report Cards can also be viewed on  

Skyward Family Access. 

- If your student took an End of Course Exam (EOC), the grade on the report card will not be finalized until the scores are received.  Revised report cards will be available if requested. 

- Rising 7th grade students MUST provide the school with updated immunization documentation. Additional information can be found on our GLMS website.

- You can update Emergency Contact information and monitor student grades anytime through Skyward Family Access.  A change of address will require you to visit the school with updated documentation.

- SAVE THE DATE - Schedule Pick-Up will be Thursday, August 8th!  Times will be posted on GLMS website.


In preparation for the 2019-2020 school year, students are to complete a summer reading assignment.  Each Language Arts teacher will provide details, information will be posted on our GLMS Website, and in this newsletter.  Students will maintain access to iReady Reading and Math this summer and we encourage this continual practice.  Additional reading is also recommended and The Florida Sunshine State Books are an excellent way to build reading skills. 


Thank you Eagle Families for concluding our 32nd year of educating our youth.  I wish you a wonderful summer.  If you have any concerns during the summer, we will be open Monday through Thursday from 8:30am to 4:30pm.  Together we will continue to help your child succeed.  


As Always, Let's SOAR Eagles!
