If you have previously opted out of Survey Monkey you will not receive the link for voting via email. If you vote via paper ballot, fill out one ballot for each student enrolled. Only the number of election ballots you are entitled to submit will be accepted.

 All board members are expected to attend monthly board meetings and called meetings, participate on committees, attend school events whenever possible and assist with fundraising for the school. Board members are also expected to complete required State training prior to swearing in and participate in on-going Board training during the term. The board is elected each year by faculty, staff, and parents.  At GMC each faculty and staff member receives one vote. In addition, every family has one vote per child currently enrolled at GMC. It is extremely important for you, as a member of the GMC community, to exercise your right to vote. Please take time to vote either electronically when you receive the email with the election link or see Mrs. Clark in the office to vote in person via paper ballot.
