Grant Scholastic Bowl 2017-2018

Scholastic Bowl is a high-speed trivia team that practices and participates against other schools in the area to test our school's academic prowess. The team is currently looking for students in 6th/7th and 8th grade who might have a particular strength or strengths in academic and trivia arenas of Math, Science, Literature, Authors, Grammar, Spelling, Art History, Music, Composers, U.S. and World History, Geography, Current Events, and Sports.

We have currently established this year's team but are not opposed to adding players as we proceed through the season. Please see Mrs. Romer in 208 or Mr. Graves in room 209, for more information and study material to prepare for tryouts to be held sometime in early October. We are in real need of students who are strong in math and in grammar. If you feel like a Jedi in one (or many)of these areas come... join the "Dork Side".

GMS has a chess team that is a group of kids who want to learn and possibly compete against other teams around the district. Starting in September, there will be boards available in the library on Tuesdays and Thursdays for those who would like to play a quiet game at lunch. If you would like challenge Mr. Graves to a game (our GMS coach), then find this bald teacher in the hall or in room 209. If you want to know more about chess, check out this movie about a young African chess player. Or if you'd like to see a great movie. http://www.timeforkids.com/news/all-hail-queen/458721 . Chess nights will begin in mid November. More announcements to follow.
