A Note from Mrs. Mitchell...
What a crazy year it has been! Our students learned some hard lessons during this pandemic, but they managed to persevere through all of them. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of your child's education this year, and we are definitely looking forward to increased normalcy in the fall. It'll be so exciting to meet our new 6th graders and to welcome back our 7th and 8th graders. If they're not already, they'll most likely be taller than me.
To all of our future Wildcats, you will be missed! Thank you for an amazing three years! Please remember that you will always be loved and valued at Gregory Middle School. Once a Pioneer, always a Pioneer!
Check out some of the highlights from promotion week. Special thank you to Elliott B. for the drone picture!

Please join us in four curious filled weeks of camp June 28th - July 24th for students in 3rd-12th grade. The STEAM Scholars2 is an innovative camp that will be held with a “Curiosity...about the Pandemic” theme this year. It is an inclusive, multi-faceted problem-solving initiative designed to increase the exposure of students to coding, chess, art, game design, science, math, STEM-careers and the college experience. The classes are taught by educators, teacher candidates, and STEM professionals who provide students with 12 hours engaged weekly instruction. Each week students will receive weekly materials for the camp.

Our Virtual Calming Room is a place where students, staff and families can find instructional videos, tools, strategies, and apps for managing feelings and emotions. You can find mindfulness activities, breathing exercises, quick and fun movement breaks/exercise, how to practice self-compassion and gratitude, relaxation techniques and much more. Each week we highlight a new coping skill in the announcements through the Happiness Challenge. Students are encouraged to complete the challenge independently or with their family between classes or during free time. Many teachers also do the challenges together as a class in advisory.
Students have access to these links and resources in their Counselor Connection Google Classroom and parents can find them on our GMS School Counselor Website. Please reach out to your school counselor if you are concerned about your child and need additional support or resources.
