  • 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.

  • Gray Middle School Science Fair

    Posted by Webmaster at 1/20/2015

    Thank you to everyone who helped make our Science Fair a success! We had 224 projects displayed from students and groups, with more than 300 participants! The students tested natural water filters, how music influences memory, and what airplane design flies farthest! We were so glad to see so many parents and families come out to acknowledge our student’s hard work.  The Science Fair is the ultimate answer to that age old question “Why am I learning this?”. Our students used the methods they are learning in their science classes to ask questions, test their hypotheses, record observations and data, and come to their own conclusions.  We know these investigations will lead to more questions and more learning – helping us to accomplish our goals in the science department.
