Students in Mr. Mark Hyde's Gilmer Middle School classes were recently awarded a major audio/visual technology grant from the Georgia Department of Education which included video cameras, encoder, iPads, and related hardware and software.  Pictured with some of the new equipment is the GMS Morning News Team consisting of Lucy Ray, Lily Thurman, Edgar Guzman, Angelo Spadaro, and Caden Farist. Mr. Hyde and his students are very excited and eager to share their productions with the community in the near future.

 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.
