Attention 7th Grade Parents
Before students can enter 7th grade, the school must have a new Tennessee Certificate of Immunization proving that the student has received:
2. Two doses of Varicella (Chicken Pox) Vaccine
Contact you medical provider or the Knox County Health Department at 865-215-5150 to see if your child has proof of these vaccines.
Chili is a H.A.B.I.T (Human-Animal Bond in Tennessee) dog that will be working at Gresham this year. A H.A.B.I.T volunteer will bring Chili to school so that students can interact with her. She is a H.A.B.I.T. approved dog. Students receive psychological and physical benefits from animal interaction. The goal of H.A.B.I.T. is to bring a nonjudgemental and unconditional loving animal into the schoolhouse to create a supportive environment for students. A student's parent or guardian must sign a form before he or she can spend time with a H.A.B.I.T. dog.
A team of students from Gresham Middle School have worked since September 2014 to design an experiment through the Student Spaceflight Experiments Program’s (SSEP) Mission 7 to the International Space Station (ISS). Their experiment was chosen through a national review at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum and recently completed the NASA Flight Safety Review. Now, students are refining the experiment for flight configuration before sending it to NanoRacks, LLC in early June for payload integration. This experiment measures the effects of microgravity on antibiotics. It is expected to be transported to the ISS aboard SpaceX-7 from Cape Canaveral, Florida, on June 19, 2015. This date is subject to change according to NASA’s requirements. For the full story, visit knoxschools.org.
