Open House and Reception
Open House and Reception
The students and staff of the Governor Morehead School for The Blind (GMS) would like to cordially invite you to attend an Open House and Reception on Monday, November 26, 2018 from two until four o’clock in the afternoon.
The purpose of this event is to share with our community various student demonstrations and information on the services and programs offered at GMS. The GMS Ray Gymnasium will be filled with exhibits (by students and staff) featuring the school's unique programs and services. You may also tour the facilities and observe children in classrooms and other instructional areas. The Governor Morehead School has the distinction of educating not only students with visual impairments, but students who may have additional disabilities as well.
A visit to our campus will also showcase an exclusive opportunity to experience the school's “Whole Child” initiative as GMS provides a residential setting as well. GMS also offers the students additional opportunities necessary for both growth and development to participate in curriculum and activities not always available in the local public-school system.
We hope that you can take advantage of this opportunity to become more knowledgeable about the Governor Morehead School, and we look forward to your learning more about our school by participating in this very worthwhile and exciting event!
Governor Morehead School for visually impaired celebrates 2018 grads
Blind cheerleaders dominate, devastate, dazzle
They took the floor with pom-poms swinging, hair done up in ribbons and white sneakers tied tight – the blind cheerleaders holding their partially sighted friends by the elbow.
Once on the mat, they stood with hands on hips as the crowd of 100 people whooped and banged their hands together, applause they could feel rising to the rafters. And when the judges’ call came – “Begin! – eight teen-age girls from the Governor Morehead School jumped and pumped fists with all the attitude of a show pony.
