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!
