A heartfelt congratulations go out to this year's STAR Award recipients. Thank you for being a part of our neighborhood. The GMC PTO will present the STAR Award recipients at a red carpet event on Thursday, April 20th.
The GMC PTO also took a group of students to Nashville for their annual Day on the Hill. On Wednesday, March 29th, the GMC PTO hosted the annual trip to visit the capitol building in Nashville.
Students who participated began their day with meeting Governor Bill Lee and posing for a photo, then onto a mock session in the House chambers. We then were led on a tour of the capitol building, followed by lunch in the Legislative Lounge, where students met Representatives Mark White and Jeff Vaughn, Secretary of State Tre Hargett, and the Legislative Librarian.
The visit was wrapped up with a visit to the Tennessee Archives, which just opened in 2021. GMC PTO is honored to be able to offer this opportunity to GMSD students in grades 6-12 each year and we are always impressed with how well students represent our district.
We appreciate our adult chaperones, too, including GMSD School Board Member Angela Griffith and GMSD Teacher of the year, Alicia Breen. Special thanks to Terry Rogers, GMC PTO Legislative Chair and each of the Legislative Chairpersons at the school PTOs who worked ltogether to make this day happen.
Lastly, the GMC PTO will announce the student winners of their annual art and writing contest later this week! We are looking forward to seeing the winning works.
