  • Pasta For Pennies

    Posted by Webmaster at 2/2/2015
    Starting Monday, February 2nd, we will be participating in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Pasta for Pennies, presented by Olive Garden.
     
    During the program, students collect money to support LLS’s mission: to find cures and ensure access to treatments for blood cancer patients. The goal is to take all that change lying around under couch cushions, on your dresser, or in your car console. By you and your child collecting this, you can make a difference in so many lives.
     
    Donations can also be given online at www.schoolandyouth.org. Be sure to click on Cecil E. Gray Middle School and type in your child’s first period teacher so they get credit for it. The first period class that raises the most money will receive a pasta party from Olive Garden including pasta, salad, and breadsticks.
     
    Thanks to you and your children for helping LLS create a world without blood cancer.

  • Go Red for Women

    Posted by Webmaster at 2/2/2015
    Each year, 1 in 3 women die of heart disease and stroke, but we can change that because 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented with education and lifestyle changes.
     
    When it comes to beating heart disease and stroke, change can be the cure. To save lives and raise awareness of this serious issue, the American Heart Association launched Go Red For Women.
     
    The first Friday of each February has been declared National Wear Red Day. Join GMS as we wear red on Friday, February 6 for our Annual National Wear Red Day. (Sponsored by American Heart Association)​

  • Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Essay Contest

    Posted by Webmaster at 1/22/2015
    For the third year in a row, Gray Middle School has won Lake County’s traveling trophy for the most participants in the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. essay contest. Each year, in honor of Dr. King, Lake County conducts an essay contest in which students write about individuals who are continuing Dr. King’s legacy. This year’s writing theme was “Embracing the Dream” and through their writing, students were to address the efforts men and women have made to help create fairness, equality and opportunities for all people. In the Language Arts classes in each grade level, students received an overview of Dr. King, his contributions to society, and worked together to develop ideas of people from modern day that continue to support his dream of equality and fairness. Once students had an idea of who they should write about, teachers worked with the students to plan, write and revise an essay before sending it to the county judges. This year, Gray Middle School had over 750 students participate; 19 of which were semifinalist and recognized at an award ceremony on Friday, January 16th. Each of the 750 students that participated will receive a certificate in recognition of their hard work.
     
    The Language Arts department is very proud of each and every student here at Gray Middle School and see this accomplishment as just one of the many steps we are taking towards moving Gray from good to great.
