Parent Teacher Conference

On February 8th from 2:45-4:00 we will have another opportunity for Parent Teacher Conferences. Because of our overwhelming response we had in the fall, we have to limit all conferences to no more than 10 minutes and we will have to cut our time off at 4:00. If you can not attend during that time or feel that we need a longer time to meet with you, please contact your child's homeroom teacher and we can get a time set up for you.

Savings Book Fundraiser

On Wednesday, Jan 27th our school began the Savings Book Fundraiser. Students who chose to participate took home a coupon book to sell for $20. Students should use that book as a sample to show other people to get them interested in buying a book for themselves. The goal is to sell as many books as possible - turn the money into the homeroom teacher and receive more coupon books. If you decide not to participate, just send the book back to school with your child and no money is required. The fundraiser ends on Friday, Feb 12th.

Fire House Subs School Night

Fire House Subs in Hope Mills is donating a portion of their proceeds from Thursday, Feb 4th from 4pm-8pm to Gray's Creek Middle School. Please help us by visiting Fire House Subs!

Social Studies Update

The unit on ancient Rome has been changed to the last 2 weeks of February and the first 2 weeks of March. During this time, we will complete numerous in-class mini projects. For this civilization, the students will need to bring in 1 terra cotta flower pot either 6 or 8 inch size and markers. We will use these for a mini project on 3/11/16. If the students do not bring a flower pot, an alternate assignment using paper will be offered.
