Magnet Open House a Success!
Greenville Middle's Magnet Open House on Oct. 11 was a huge success! After attending an informational meeting on GMA's unique curriculum focus and the application process for applying to the school, over 200 parents and students went on a "Pokemon Hunt" to discover our school. Everyone was able to catch a different Pokemon by visiting and participating in each of the following classrooms: Gateway to Technology, STEAM Science, RamRadio, French and Spanish classrooms, Global Studies, Google Basics/Mutlimedia, Journalism, Speech & Debate, Art and the Media Center. Sixth, seventh and eighth grade academic teachers also helped students "Catch Em All" as they spoke with parents about our educational advantages and superior writing instruction. Additionally, our guests were entertained by our fabulous Strings students and Chorus. The evening ended with refreshments in the school courtyard.
If you know of someone who missed this opportunity to hear about the application process available to students outside of GMA's attendance zone, please have them call Alonda Rollison at 355-5670.
