School Supply Store

     The GLMS PTSA has a new SCHOOL STORE. To make this the most successful store possible, we are asking for donations to help fill the shelves. The items of most importance are loose leaf paper (college and wide), mechanical pencils, lead (.05, .07, .09), pens, and highlighters. If you would like to help, but don’t like to shop, you may also donate gift cards or make a monetary donation. Please drop your donations off at the GLMS front desk Monday – Thursday 9am to 3pm. As always, we thank you for all your support! The PTSA would not be possible without the support of our GLMS families.
