I would like to thank the amazing Greenwood Lakes Middle School teachers and staff. From day one, they have done their very best as a team to make this a successful school year. I thank them for their dedication, efforts, and support in helping students learn and achieve. I truly have the best staff! A special thanks to our PTSA Board, SAC, Partners in Education, and our dedicated group of Dividends. Please continue to be involved, because without your involvement, Greenwood Lakes Middle School would not be as successful as it is. We have had a great year because of our teachers, staff, parents, and students.

As we approach the end of the school year, please remember:

  • Report Cards can be found on Skyward Family Access.
  • If your student took an End of Course Exam (EOC), the grade on the report card will not be finalized until the scores are received. Revised report cards will be available if requested.
  • Rising 7th grade students MUST provide the school with updated tDap immunization documentation. Additional information can be found on our GLMS website.
  • You can update Emergency Contact information and monitor student grades anytime through Skyward Family Access. A change of address will require you to visit the school and provide updated documentation.
  • SAVE THE DATE - Schedule Pick-Up will be Thursday, August 8th! Times will be posted on our GLMS website.


In preparation for the 2024-2025 school year, students are to complete a summer Reading and Math assignment. Each Math and Language Arts teacher have provided details, information will be posted on our GLMS Website, in this newsletter, and sent to all feeder elementary schools. Additional reading is also recommended, and The Florida Sunshine State Books are an excellent way to build reading skills.

Thank you, Eagle Families, for concluding another strong year of educating our youth. I wish you a wonderful summer. If you have any concerns during the summer, we will be open Monday through Thursday from 8:30am to 4:00pm. Together we will continue to help your child succeed.

As Always, Let’s SOAR Eagles!

Breezi Johnson, Principal
