The School District of Pickens County (SDPC) will open on a two-hour delay on Thursday, January 20, 2022, due to the continued danger of ice on shaded areas and on secondary roads. The two-hour delay gives additional time for ice to melt off the roads and will improve visibility for drivers. -- Morning 3K and 4K classes are canceled. PM classes operate on a normal schedule. -- No Buses on Icy Roads -- High school students (including Career Center) should check their Schoology messages for adjusted class times and bell schedules.

Gettys Middle congratulates another outstanding teacher, Dr. Melanie Callahan that received WYFF’s Golden Apple Teaching Award. Students and parents alike have always commented on Dr. Callahan’s caring approach to her students and families. Even one of her former students, Ada Bates, commented that her former teacher’s incorporation of a pop song helped her remember some historical events that was needed on one of her AP Exams. Dr. Callahan volunteers her time after school with her leadership in our school’s History Club that has provided engaging Social Studies topics beyond the school day like our recent Veteran’s Day and a discussion on the events of 9/11. Dr. Callahan is “Making Gettys Great” so please join me in showing our appreciation and thanks to another outstanding Gettys Middle School teacher!

Our 6th grade writers were on parade today at GMS! Our 6th grade ELA teachers used the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade as a short unit of study to teach writing an objective summary. Students researched the history of the parade using Macy’s interactive website to complete this task. This activity culminated with ELA students building their own parade floats using shoe boxes donated by Under the Carolina Moon! Proud of their parade and work! Happy Thanksgiving!
