    Student presents information during symposium Gray’s Creek High School’s FFA Chapter recently hosted its very first Agriculture Symposium.  It was a huge success! Over 100 people were able to learn about several different interesting topics! This event was created in order to spread knowledge of agriculture to students and community members. But aside from agriculture, students were able to choose workshops relating to resume building, making goals, college and more. 

    Grays Creek Middle Schools FFA ProgramThere were a total of 16 workshops at the Symposium that included beekeeping, gardening, small animal pet care, stress management, backyard poultry, fishing, canning, photography and more. Mrs. April Pittman, one of the agriculture education teachers and FFA advisors, has been trying to get this event started ever since she began student teaching. She was beyond pleased with the turnout of the Symposium and is excited that this will become an annual event. Others who attended are also excited that this will be a yearly activity. Some who came were looking forward to learning about topics they’ve always wanted to know about and cross some things off their bucket list!

                Middle School Band Playing InstrumentsThe band programs at Lewis Chapel Middle School and Max Abbott Middle School celebrated March as Music In Our Schools Month with the third annual Collaboration Concert Project on March 6 and March 8, 2018.  For this joint venture, each band independently prepares four musical selections and then combines to rehearse them and perform at both of the middle schools.  This is a fantastic way for the administrations and band directors, Mr. Jasen Thompson and Mrs. Julie Jordan, to help students bridge the distance between the different schools with something they all have in common through the magic of music education!

                  Words Community Volunteers on School Watch with an image of an eye Members of the Board approved a school watch program that will use community volunteers to help safeguard local schools. The volunteers, who will be known as School Angels, will “provide an extra pair of eyes and ears” on school campuses across the district. They will work to alert administrators to any suspicious activities around schools; greet parents, students, and visitors; provide directional campus information, and inform administrators of any physical safety and security concerns. Plans are for the volunteers, who have to successfully pass a volunteer background check, to receive training in radio communications and on crisis management and the emergency handbook. Interim Superintendent Tim Kinlaw told the Board that a program facilitator will be needed to not only train, but recruit volunteers from across the County.
