April Showers

Greetings from Gallatin County Middle School! April is certainly showering GCMS with many blessings! We are ecstatic to have ALL of our in-person students in the building, and they have been working hard to finish out the 2020-21 school year strong! Our staff has been busy planning our end-of-year celebrations, we hope to finalize those plans after Spring Break. Please continue to encourage your student to STRIVE FOR SUCCESS in these final weeks. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our front office.

8th Grade Moving Up Ceremony

We are pleased to announce that this year our 8th Grade "Moving Up" ceremony will be held on May 12, 2021, at 1:30 Pm with an awards ceremony at 1:00 PM. We would like to make this ceremony as normal as possible, however, COVID restrictions will still apply. Information regarding ticket information will be finalized after Spring Break.


It is important to note, not all students who participate in the ceremony are guaranteed to be promoted to the 9th grade. Many students are still recovering credits and will continue to do so during our summer session. We would like for all students to have the opportunity to participate, but please know that participation does not guarantee promotion.


Be looking for more information regarding tickets very soon!
