Zebulon Gifted & Talented Middle Families,

 

Please join us at the PTA Meeting Tuesday January 8 at 5pm in the Media Center. 

 

8th Grade Parent Night Thursday January 10, 2019 at 6 PM in the Auditorium.  The Student Services Department will present information on the Magnet High School application process.  General information will also be shared about High School registration for the Class of 2023! 

 

Zebulon Chamber of Commerce Networking and Magnet Grade 5 Open House Showcase will be held Thursday January 10.

 

Early Release will be observed Friday December 21.  Students will be released at 12:30. 

 

Please help us to remind students of the 40 Book Challenge.  Students will receive PROWL tickets for every 4 books read AND recorded on reading logs.   We will add more incentives to this.  All students should staple their reading logs in their agendas (on an old page) and bring them to the media center to be verified.

 

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.
