GMS Closed for the Summer

Please be aware GMS will be getting some major improvements during the summer of 2022. Our HVAC system will be completely replaced along with all new and improved lighting throughout the school! Due to these major improvements, GMS will be closed beginning May 27, 2022 and will reopen in late July. Our summer learning camps and programs will be held at Greeneville High School.


During the time of our closure, you will still be able to reach out to GMS. Our school phone will be accepting calls (423-639-7841), and you can reach out to administration via email.


Please check our weekly newsletter, website, and social media accounts for updates about dates, times, and locations for summer activities and athletic tryouts and practices.

Important Message from GMS GSIA

The GMS GSIA Board would like to thank you for your partnership with GSIA during the 2021-22 school year! Your support through donations and volunteering have enabled GSIA to celebrate and support all our students and staff in numerous ways throughout the school year including:

  • Allocating $50 to each classroom to celebrate successes and provide rewards to students through their Leader in Me class. A total of $2,250 was donated.
  • Donating $700 to support startup of additional clubs for student involvement
  • Organizing fundraisers that allow students to enjoy special events during the school day, rather than asking students to sell products.
  • Providing staff appreciation luncheons throughout the school year
  • Decorating and providing refreshments for the 8th grade dance

Important Information Regarding Car Tags

Current 6th & 7th Grade Students

  • All 6th & 7th grade families should KEEP your car tags for next year. You will not receive a new car tag for the new school year. Your current car tag will remain active.
  • If you would like to purchase additional car tags for next year, please use the following link to order tags now: https://forms.office.com/r/kJ1vW9HQXd. Information will be sent to families in July about picking up these new car tags before school begins. You will pay for the new car tags when you pick them up.

8th Grade Students

  • Your car tag will be deactivated after this school year ends. If you have a sibling starting at GMS, that child will receive a new car tag. The old tags can be reactivated by request. You will need to come into the school to do that at the beginning of the school year.
