Graves School District Family Night 3/19

Graves County High School, for the second consecutive year, has cleared the schedule for a Family Night. This year, Graves County Middle School and the district’s eight elementary schools have joined in the “non-activity.” It’s scheduled for Tuesday, March 19.
“Teachers have been asked to not send any homework and coaches have been asked to not have any practices,” said GCHS interim principal Matthew Madding. “Our goal is for everyone to be off our campus by 3:30 p.m., so they can go spend an evening with their families.”
With more than 20 varsity athletic teams, as many junior varsity and freshmen teams, more than 30 other extra-curricular clubs, teams, and organizations, and the demands of homework from a rigorous curriculum, GCHS recognizes that its activities often can present roadblocks to families spending quality time together. Rarely are there nights when some obligation at GCHS does not require many families to adjust their time together.
Middle and elementary schools across the country have steadily increased through the years in the number of athletic, music, club, and other extracurricular activities they offer as well. After seeing the success of last year’s initial Family Night, the entire Graves County District has decided to join in this year.
