Gra-Mar Middle School (as well as all MNPS iZone Schools) will have an expanded schedule this year as we add 8 days to our school calendar. The iZone schools are using increased learning time as a catalyst to accelerate learning, deepen student engagement, and improve instruction.
Research shows that when children have more time to learn, they do better in school. That is why the Tennessee Department of Education has afforded us the opportunity to extend our calendar by adding four days each semester.
To meet this requirement, our students will add four days each semester during the week designated in the district as “Intersession”. All iZone schools will be designing academic and enrichment activities during these additional days to help your student improve their reading and math skills. We believe this will be a tremendous advantage for your child and will help all our students do their best.
Please mark your calendars and plan to have your child in school for these additional school days:
Spring Session: March 17-20 (Monday – Thursday)
• Regular school hours (8:55 a.m. until 3:55 p.m.)
• School bus transportation will be provided to students who normally ride the bus
• Cafeteria will serve meals as usual
• Children will have a full week of spring break March 24-28
Thank you for your participation and support of these additional school days to benefit your child. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher or call the main office at 615-262-6685.
For additional details, please see the school calendar.
