State Testing Dates for ALL (virtual & in-person) GMA students:
We're just days away before taking the SC READY assessments! We want students to be as prepared for these tests as possible and ask parents to review the Parent Testing Presentation with their student. Information in the presentation includes tutorials, the Online Tools Training, as well as sample items for each tested area. We ask parents to ensure appointments are scheduled around testing dates. While tests are untimed , most students typically finish around 12:00 PM.

Students did a great job last week with testing. We're proud of their focus and efforts. Keep it up this week as we continue with testing. On Tuesday, May 23, students will take the SC READY Mathematics assessment and on Wednesday, May 24, 6th grade students will take the SC READY Science assessment and 8th graders taking Algebra I will take the End-of-Course assessment. Students, please make sure you are at school, on time, ready to begin testing. Eat breakfast so you can focus and do your best. Remember that Chromebooks should be fully charged. Also, cell phones and smart watches will need to be placed in your lockers. They are not permitted in the test sessions. More information can be found on our website.
All library books and materials need to be returned to the media center by Tuesday, May 23.
Students will be returning Chromebooks this week. Please ensure the Chromebook cover is returned with the Chromebook as well as the Chromebook charger.

School Bulletin - Week of May 22
Thursday, June 1 and Friday, June 2 are HALF DAYS. Students will be dismissed from school at 12:45 PM. Lunch will be served before students are dismissed.

Please pick up medications from the Health Room by June 2. Medication must be picked up by an adult and may be picked up during school hours daily 8:00 - 3:00 PM. If you need to arrange another time for pick-up of your student’s medication, please contact Nurse Catherine.
Any medications remaining in the health room on the last day of school will have to be destroyed per school district policy. Than you for your assistance!
As we are preparing for the next school year's registration, it is most important that we have your correct address information on file. This determines the school your student will attend. All address changes require proper documentation (two proofs of residency) to be presented to the school.
If you have moved or will be moving, please email Sherry Coleman, our Registrar, at email@example.com or call 864-355-5604.

Celebrate Summer Reading! Even though school’s ending for summer break, doesn’t mean reading needs to end as well! Extensive research shows that young adults who continue to read during the summer maintain or improve their reading skills and perform better when school resumes. Greenville Middle Academy's 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade students are encouraged to select the books they want to read, histories, mysteries, sports, and graphic novels. Or listen to audiobooks or podcasts. eBooks and audiobooks are free through the Sora app with your school username and password. The link to GCSD Sora library is found at the bottom of our school webpage.
Students should choose books at their interest and reading levels. Students must record titles and authors on our Celebrate Summer Reading form. Include four sentences about your favorite book read this summer. And, students MUST have a parent/guardian signature to verify the books read. Completed Celebrate Summer Reading! forms must be turned in to Mrs. Carey in the Media Center by Friday, August 25, 2023. Top Readers will be recognized!
Anyone interested in trying out for our Greenville Middle Girls Volleyball team needs to fill out this Volleyball intent form. Thanks!
Magnet Application Windows. Learn More Here.
Admission into magnet academies is open to all eligible students, but spaces are limited. Students may apply to more than one magnet academy. Applications are scored based on four criteria: attendance, discipline, grade average (student interview in Grades K-5, 1, 2), and a student statement indicating why the student would like to attend the magnet academy. Students who apply and qualify during the first application period have a greater chance of being offered a slot than those students who apply and qualify in later rounds.
