  • My Daughter was transferred from Lincoln into GMES. My daughter is so much happier at GMES and she has a better teacher. The class she transferred from was disruptive and out of control. Mrs. Dunn and the rest of the staff has made her learning experience so much better.

  • I wish more parents were at the PTA meeting.
    Well they call it PTO. Associations to me is better but anyhow. We all are created equal. Overly educated and the average daily working parent or grandparent or who ever you are, loving your Garnet Mesa Student. We all make a difference and count. Degree or no degree. Please come and be heard. If we get enough people to join we can vote on presidents and secretarys. I am not college educated infact I see things backwards sometimes, but my voice can and will still be heard. Besides in years to come your child will be glad you just attened a meeting to at least see what is happening. Its you and your kid that make a difference in this big wide world. A parent who understands. We Love our kids @ GMES. All of them. NO kid left behind in their feelings and self esteem. as time goes on i will re rate the school but since its only bee the first month I think I should wait. blessings to all who read this. oxox a happy mom ps. I do like my daughters teacher he is good, and the leadership is awesome, they see each one as their own.
