Wednesday, January 19, 2022 will be a Digital Learning Day for the School District of Pickens County due to the continued danger of icy roads. Students will not attend school in-person. While there are areas in our county that have improved, there are many shaded areas that continue to have noticeable ice and black ice on roads. Temperatures are expected to drop again tonight and are not predicted to rise above freezing until after 9:00 am. Even with a delay, transportation would have to occur on the roads prior to this time.

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! https://www.wyff4.com/article/gettys-middle-school-teacher-wins-golden-apple-award/38390317

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!
