2019-2020 Short-Term Sessions

We are excited to offer eight short-term sessions this year for students (K-12) with visual impairments from all across North Carolina. Students will receive tailored, intensive instruction in the Expanded Core Curriculum (Orientation and Mobility, Assistive Technology, Compensatory Skills, Independent Living Skills, Recreation & Leisure, Visual Efficiency, Career Education, Self-Determination, and Social Interaction Skills). These are skills critical for students with visual impairments due to their unique disability-specific needs. Each session is 5 days. Attached is the application form.

2019-2020 Registration

Welcome Back, Chargers! If you still need to register, contact Shonny Williams at (984) 292-3033 or shonika.williams@esdb.dpi.nc.gov and make arrangements. Safety is very important to GMS; therefore, no student will be admitted without coordinating with Shonny. This will ensure the school has all updated information including contacts, medical needs, and prescriptions. We appreciate your cooperation!

Principal's Message

Hello GMS students, families, staff, stakeholders, and community. We are all excited to welcome the students back onto our beautiful campus. Many preparations have been made to make this an engaging and fun year that will allow all our students the opportunity to achieve their highest potential. A big thank you goes out to those who helped in these preparations all summer long.
 
My family and I would like to thank you for your warm welcome to the school and state of North Carolina. I am so honored and humbled to be able to serve you as the principal of GMS. I have been spending my time learning about the school's rich history and accomplishments. I have also met and interacted with this year’s teaching staff. I am excited to be a part of their energy and drive to provide our students with high standards, a quality education, and enriching life experiences. Their dedication to the students of GMS and the community is inspiring. I am especially appreciative for the continued work, support, and guidance of Dr. Jailall, Mr. McEachern, superintendent Mrs. Bacon, and the School Improvement Team. I look forward to our continued collaboration and work together.
 
Most importantly, I am excited to meet our students and families on Sunday, August 18th from 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM in Lineberry Hall. 
 
As the year progresses, I look forward to personally developing relationships with our families and stakeholders and being part of the collaborative effort, it takes for our students to be part of a 21st-century learning community. I invite you to get involved with us at GMS by being active in the PTA and The Governor Morehead Foundation, supporting GMS's athletic teams, music, arts, and technology programs, being a community partner, and much more. 
 
Thank you again for your kind welcome as I make the transition into the position as principal at GMS. Please feel free to stop by my office and say hello.
