Again this year, we are offering 8th grade parents the opportunity to place recognition ads in the 2015 MGMS Gator Tales Yearbook. These ads give you the opportunity to publicly express your love for your child and to recognize his/her accomplishments while here at MGMS.

The order, photos, text and payment for your child’s ad are due by Friday, December 5, 2014. Everything to be included in the ad must be at the school by 3:30 p.m. on that date. Please make checks payable to MGMS. Thank You!

Celebrating our Veterans

8th Grade students honored our veterans last week at Town Hall. Students recreated the setting of the "white table" to honor the men and women who served in America's Armed Forces, especially those missing in action or those held prisoner of war. Our table was set and placed in the Gator Grill for the day as a gentle reminder of the many sacrifices our veterans have made for our country and our freedom. We thank you veterans for your service!

8th Grade Tales with a Twist

8th grade ELA students celebrated the publications of their "Tales with a Twist." They created traveling posters/displays with QR codes to link directly to their stories. Students shared their work within the grade level and hope to share it with the entire school.

Thank you for sharing your children with us each day!
