Zebulon Gifted & Talented Middle Parents,

 

The PTA meeting has been rescheduled for November 8 Thursday at 5pm in the Media Center.

  

Tuesday is a 2 hour delay.  ZGTMMS students may begin arriving at 9:45.  Classes will begin at 10:15. 

 

We will host a Veterans Day assembly Thursday for 6th Grade and a guest speaker Friday for 7th and 8th Grade.

 

Friday October 30 will be make-up picture day.

 

The end of the 1st quarter is October 30.  Report cards will be distributed November 9.  If you would like a conference, please contact your student’s teachers directly and or counselor.

 

Would you like to share with students about your professional career as we help students navigate all the school to career possibilities?  Our Career Development Coordinator Mrs. Creech is looking for professionals to come and have lunch with 3-4 students and share about their chosen career field.  Please complete the google contact link on our website entitled "ZGTMMS School to Career - Lunch and Learn".  Two lunch and learns per month will be organized by invitation only for 8th grade students who have an interest in the career field of the professional career guest. 

 

Parents, a few reminders. The school day starts at 8:15 and doors are open to students at 7:45am.  Students arriving earlier than 7:45am need to remain in the front of the building and are not supervised by adults. Students arriving after 8:15 are considered tardy and must be checked in by a parent.  Carpool is located in the back parking lot. 

 

The school day ends at 3:00pm and the staggered dismissal process begins.  Walkers and students riding carpool will be dismissed first.  Bus riding students will be dismissed once their bus arrives on campus. 

 

Our daily schedule has been adjusted so that students have 6 classes; three electives each quarter and 3 core classes each semester.  ELA and Math are year-long and Science and Social Studies will alternate semesters.  This provides extended time in core classes and less courses to focus on at one time.  There may be some adjustments in individual student schedules to ensure that your student has the best student experience.
