News & Updates

6th Grade House Gators Give Back Service Announced!

We are very excited to be helping to collect items for foster children in the areas with our CREW project this nine weeks. Each CREW has been given a gender and a size to buy items for - these will, in turn, be donated to foster children transitioning from home to home or moving into the foster care system.

Thank you for your donations - they are very much appreciated!

Medieval Times

Please make sure that your child has brought in his/her money for the trip by Monday, November 16. We need to get this in so that we can make arrangements with buses and the Medieval Times folks. Thank you!

Penny Wars

To help those in need after the recent flood, student council is sponsoring Penny Wars at MGMS.

Remember - pennies are POSITIVE points, silver money and dollars are NEGATIVE points, and checks are DOUBLE-NEGATIVE points!

It’s a great cause and a fun way to raise money for our neighbors! Please encourage your student(s) to collect pennies or whatever change they can find, and plan to bring it in starting. The drive will continue until Friday, November 13!

The winning grade level will receive a BLOCK PARTY!

We've already raised almost $700 dollars, and our goal is $1000, but we want to raise as much money as possible to help our neighbors!

In a HUGE twist of events, current standings are:

1st Place: 8th Grade with -16,575 points

2nd Place: 7th grade with -19,596 points

3rd Place: 6th grade with -24,644 points
