The GMS Dance and Cheer Teams are excited to announce Gorzycki's Red Carpet Affair for 7th and 8th graders on Friday April 8th from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m.
We realize this is short notice. The event was just recently approved due to Covid restrictions being lifted and there were no other available dates on the school calendar that didn't already have a planned event for the rest of the year. After the last two years of missing out on so many school activities and events, we feel the opportunity for the kids to have a memorable experience will outweigh the stress of last minute planning and scheduling conflicts that may arise on this day. The Dance Booster Board is ready and excited to plan this event, and appreciate all the offers to help as we pull this all together.
