We have an annual Christmas tradition at Granite Baptist School of providing needed items to the Baltimore Rescue Mission.  This year we have attached their wish list and hope to collect as many of the requested items as possible.  If you are interested in contributing, please send in the items to the School Office by Tuesday, December 19th.  Thank you for your generosity!



As a reminder to our athletes, students must be in school by no later than 10:15 am (unless at a doctor’s appointment) in order to practice, participate in a home game or attend an away game.



If GBS is closed or has a delayed opening, you can be notified the following ways:  School Cast messaging; our website; our phone messaging 410-761-1118 option 2 and option 2 again; WBAL-TV Channel 11; WRBS radio FM 95.1 and WBAL radio AM 1090.



This year we are offering season passes to all of our home basketball games and tournaments.  Season pass holders will save approximately 50% if they attend every home game.  The price is $35 per adult, $20 per child and a $100 family max for immediate family members (i.e. mother, father, child).  The regular ticket price is $3.00 per adult and $2.00 per student, per game. If you are interested please come to the School Office to purchase your season pass.  Let’s go Braves!



Please remember that students who are ill or have a fever are not permitted to attend class and should not be brought to school.  A child who wakes up with a fever and is given Tylenol is still a sick child.  Please do not send your child to school within a 24 hour period of fever, vomiting or diarrhea.  No student with a temperature of 100 degrees or above will be allowed to remain in school. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.


School standard dress must be worn for all school activities including after school games, Saturday tournaments and evening events.  Students are not allowed to change out of their school uniform for any reason other than P.E. or sports practice.  Students who are not leaving school immediately after P.E. or practice must change back into their school uniform for aftercare and/or games.
