Zebulon Gifted & Talented Middle Families,



We had an awesome testing cycle last week!  Thank you for all of your assistance.  Monday is a holiday January 21.



As we continue our forward trajectory of providing the best environment for students to be academically successful, we know and recognize how integral of a role all parents and guardians play in our success.  So that we can continue to provide the absolute best to all stakeholders, please complete the following survey: (PARENT PBIS/CKH SURVEY)



Students will have the opportunity to participate in the James E. Shepard Alumni Association Annual Essay Contest.  The essay theme and other information will be available for students January 22.  Deadline to submit essays February 22.  Practice with finalists March 5th & 6th.  Essay and Speech Contest presentations by contestants March 7 @ 6:00pm.


There will be a ZGTMMS Magnet Tour January 23 for 5th grade parents looking for a magnet option.


Sent on behalf of the WCPSS Magnet Office:  Magnet Families please remember -

  1. 5th and 8th grade magnet students MUST apply to continue in a magnet middle /high school. They do have priority but they have to submit a magnet application. 
  2. Entry grade siblings of returning magnet students MUST apply. They will be seated first but they must submit a magnet application.


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.
