We Struck Gold Again!


 Gregg Middle School has received another Palmetto Gold Award for General Academic Performance! Congratulations to the staff and students for working hard to achieve this award for another year. As we all say here at GMS, success is the ONLY option!

 As stated in the press release from State Superintendent of Education, Mick Zais:
The Palmetto Gold and Silver Awards program, founded in 1998, recognizes schools for general performance and closing the achievement gap. Within those two categories, a school may be awarded either the gold or silver designation. This is the sixth year that closing the achievement gap has been included as part of the program.
