Have you ever shopped at the school supply store? The GBMS School Store is open every morning from 7:15 to 7:30. There, you can purchase all kinds of helpful school supplies like pens, pencils, paper, glue, and notebooks. However, what most people don’t know is that the money students spend at the store goes to help others. Ever since Mrs. Grace Freeman took charge of the store about eight years ago, income has been used to help pay for the Veterans Appreciation Breakfast every November.

This is a very important time which is set aside to recognize the men and women who sacrificed to make our country great and give us the freedoms we have today. Funds that are left over go to help students participating in the National History Day competition.

Several GBMS students volunteer weekly at the school store. “We get to hang with our friends and socialize while earning community service hours,” says store volunteer Amy MacKinnen, 8th grade. Deanna Harwell, 8th grade wanted to volunteer after hearing about the store at an NJHS meeting. Also, Hailey Ward, 8th grade encourages other students to apply next year, saying, “If you are looking for service hours and you are a very sociable person, then yes!”
