Our 3rd Parent Engagement Night will be held February 28.  We are inviting all parents to come out from 6:00 until 7:45 in order to learn what your students will be doing the next quarter.  Teachers will provide valuable information that will aide in assisting students at home.  We will also have drawings and students will receive PROWL tickets for your attendance.

 

March 8 we will host our Career & College Fair.  Last year all students benefited from this experience and we had over 40 representatives from various businesses, colleges & universities.  If you are interested in hosting a table to discuss your career field with a floating room of students, please contact Barnanne Creech or contact the front desk at 919-404-3630.

 

CONGRATULATIONS to all stakeholders of ZGTMMS!!!! We received the National Merit Award of Magnet School of Distinction 2019!!!!  Thank you for your continued support and encouragement.

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.
