    Teacher Appreciation Day!

    People in the United States started celebrating National Teacher Day in 1953 when Eleanor Roosevelt persuaded Congress to set aside a day to recognize educators. It did not become a national day until March 7, 1980.  People continued to celebrate the day in March until 1984, when the National Parent Teacher Association designated the first full week of May as Teacher Appreciation Week.  The following year, the NEA voted to make the Tuesday of that week National Teacher Day.


    The NEA describes National Teacher Day as "a day of honoring teachers and recognizing the lasting contributions they make to our lives."  Students typically show their appreciation for teachers by being extra sweet and writing thank-you cards.  Don't forget to honor your teachers.

    GATOR CAMP is a program designed to help INCOMING SIXTH GRADERS become familiar with the campus, classrooms, and some of our teachers.


    Students will participate in various “classes” and take a tour of the campus. Students will be given information on dress code, agendas, supplies, textbooks, discipline, academics, and enrichment classes. A special treat will be given during the tour.


    Students should be on campus no earlier than 8:45-9:00am and picked up promptly at 11:00am on Magnolia Street at the parent pick up/drop off area. We hope to see you all there! For further information, please contact Gray Middle School at (352) 429–3322.


    GATOR CAMP is also a program designed to help incoming 6th grade parents become familiar with our academic focus, the bell schedule and a few helpful hints on being a middle school parent.


    Parents will participate in a group meeting in the auditorium from 9:15-10:45am, Parent participation is strongly encouraged but your attendance is not mandatory for your child to attend GATOR CAMP.
