Welcome to Greenfield Middle School
A message from our principal:
We have been thinking of ways to thank those students that are here most, if not every day. This might include such things as certificates, extra recess time, after school or weekend get-togethers. Being in school does not necessarily mean that students will succeed, but not being in school or constantly being late to school often does mean that students cannot succeed.
To this end I would like to bring all parents/guardians attention to dropping students off on Federal Street. Several people are doing this and, not only is it against the law, it is extremely dangerous. We have seen near misses and screeching tires of unsuspecting oncoming traffic.
I ask that you pull into our staff parking lot between the church and school, drop students that then will come up the front walkway to the Federal Street door, while you continue out of our parking area and onto North Street.
I thank you for your attention of getting your child to school on time and safely.
Principal, Greenfield Middle School
January’s character theme is COOPERATION. We ask that students cooperate in many ways. One way that families can help cooperate with the school is by supervising your child’s online and texting interactions. We have noticed that some conflicts are from online social media or by text messaging. Many of these social media sites are for students 13 or older. We hope that this supervision will reduce the number of conflicts brought to school. Thank you for your continued support.

Box tops! Box tops! Box tops! Please collect them and have your child bring them into school. If students collect $500 worth, PTO will fund a fun day!
Did you know that PTO help pay for field trips? This is made possible by fundraisers. Look for upcoming fundraisers this spring!
We would love more parents to join PTO. We meet on the first Tuesday of every month. Next meeting will be Tuesday, February 4th at 6PM here at GMS.
