Good morning Grant Middle School, today is Wednesday, February 6th- 2019. Today is a  “B “ day


Students  reminder that we have begun our spring fundraiser. Please try to sell at least one item from the Double Good popcorn order form.

Reminder students the expectation in the hallway is to use appropriate language at all times— We are at school, be mindful of the language and respectful if corrected.


A big shout out to the GMS Scholastic Bowl Team.  The A team WON against Jefferson and came  close in their match against Pawnee, missing the win by 10 points.  The B team easily beat Pawnee.  Jacob McCloud gave a great performance for Jefferson, . Jefferson did not have enough players, so Jacob played for them.  He then answered more questions correctly than anyone else. If you see  team members , be sure to congratulate them.


Good luck tonight to the 8th grade boys basketball team as they travel to Effingham for the Sectional Championship.
