We are looking forward to another exciting year here at GMS.  Please read our welcome letter as this may answer a few questions for our new and returning parents.  We'll see you soon! 



GMS will host an Open House on August 3rd 
from 3:30-5:30.  Parents and students will have a chance to meet their teachers, pick up school information, and tour the building.  We can't wait to see everyone!


Check out what's happening 
during the month of May!

 All students will now receive free breakfast everyday! Due to Provision 2, breakfast will now be provided to all students free of charge.  We still strongly encourage parents to complete the free/reduced lunch forms as this only includes breakfast meals and not lunch.  Forms will be distributed to your child during the first week of school, or you may fill them out online at the Gilmer County Schools homepage.  











To request a hard copy please
call 706-276-5030 and ask for Angie Strawbridge and we will send you one.










It's so easy to support us and free!
