2019-2020 Redo/Retake Policy

Greer Middle School is implementing a Redo/Retake Policy as a strategy to help ensure the mastery of content for our students and encourage our students to have a growth mindset regarding their academic work. Mastery is considered 80 percent or higher. Our guidelines for a redo/retake plan have been designed with input from teachers, administrators, parents, and students to ensure consistent implementation school-wide.

ACE Awards

Coaches 4 Character

Coaches 4 Character, a non-profit organization whose mission is to teach at-risk youth the value of education and character development, will honor one male and female from each middle and high school in grades 8 and 12 who are considered the true “unsung heroes” in their schools.  The ACE Award is designed to honor these students who demonstrate an unusual commitment to academics despite various obstacles and who all too often are not recognized for their accomplishments.  To nominate a student go to http://www.coaches4character.com/ace-awards.html.  You may also contact Karen Clinkscale in the counseling department at kclinksc@greenville.k12.sc.us or 355-5804.  The deadline for nominations is January 31, 2020.
