GCMS Real-World Lessons


Graves County Middle School has conducted two recent events to allow students a taste of reality.   

7th graders experienced "Reality Zone," a simulation designed around making a household budget stretch on real-world expenses.  

8th graders participated in "Truth and Consequences," giving them a first-hand look into the serious consequences of some real-life decisions.   

Both programs, organized by GCMS FRYSC Coordinator Jean Ann Miller and Community Education Director Eric Walker, involved dozens of community member volunteers representing their career fields.  Our community was essential in bringing the activity to life. 

One 7th grader made the observation, "The real world is hard.  I'm glad I'm still young."

Graves County Schools sends a sincere thank you to all those involved in making these experiences possible.  Your investment now is helping to build bright futures for tomorrow.
