Due to the winter weather we missed Monday January 9th and Tuesday January 10th. Each day was re-classified as a workday (one required and one optional) We have decided not to use the January 23rd make up day. Our high schools need this time to prepare for the start of a new semester. January 9th will be made up on Friday March 10th which was originally designated as an optional teacher workday. January 10th will be made up on Friday March 31st which was originally designated as a required workday. We are hoping that we have seen all the ice and snow for the winter but in case we miss more school due to inclement weather, please be prepared for our district to strongly consider using a Saturday to make up additional days in the calendar.
Congratulations to Ms. Anissa Gillis, 4th grade teacher, for being named Mt. Gilead Elementary's Teacher of the Year. The TOY award is a special honor since it is voted on by one's peers. "The staff at MGES chose well in selecting Ms. Gillis for this honor," says Principal Anne McLean. "Ms. Gillis plans every day to be successful in her classroom, so she is. I'm happy her colleagues recognize what I have already seen in the short time I've been here." Congratulations to Ms. Gillis!
