New Course Offering at Greenville Middle for 2016-2017
We are excited to offer a new course to our students next year. Greenville Middle will now offer a Gateway to Technology (GTT) course to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. The course will allow students an opportunity to use robotics, solid modeling and design techniques. Students will learn sketching, measurement, computer modeling, and robotic design. Students will be able to explore all facets of technology in our newly designed GIT Lab. We believe this course will enhance our technology opportunities at GMA and allow students to be better perpared for a technology-driven society. If you would like to sign up for the course, please contact the school office, 355-5600.

Read Up Greenville!

Read Up! Greenville Book and Author celebration of Young Adult and Middle books and authors will be held Saturday, August 6 at the Peace Center. By bringing teens in close contact with authors through book signings, panels, and interactive events, the festival will encourage youth to continue their love for reading and hopefully encourage nonreaders to become readers.

The first annual event will be a day of celebration. There will be book sales, author signings, panel discussions, and keynote speakers. The day will feature multiple panels specific to different themes. One panel may focus on graphic novels, another on romance YA books. To learn more and check out the authors who will be coming, visit the Read Up website at readupgreenville.com
