Thank you to our outgoing board members and welcome to our incoming board. We're looking forward to another great year for the Mountain Gap PTA!
At Mountain Gap, we have a very large school community. A good number of our Grizzly students and families (as well as some teachers and staff) are new to us this year. Whether they're starting in the pre-K or Kindergarten, joining the middle school from Weatherly, or simply brand-new to Mountain Gap and Huntsville, we want to give a very warm welcome to all new members of the MGS community!
We recognize that there is a great deal of uncertainty that surrounds this school year due to the presence of Coronavirus in our city. The Mountain Gap Schools PTA will continue to support our awesome schools, faculty, and students through these unprecedented times. For up-to-date communication and information, please sign up for our weekly newsletter HERE and join us on Facebook (Mt. Gap PTA).
In 2019, the Huntsville City School Board voted to split P-8 schools into two individual schools, meaning Mountain Gap became Mountain Gap Elementary and Mountain Gap Middle. However, after consulting with the Alabama State PTA and Huntsville Council of PTAs, it was decided to have the Mountain Gap PTA serve both schools, a decision that remains effective for the coming school year. The board feels this is how the PTA can best serve both schools and the entire Mountain Gap community.
Mountain Gap has been named a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the U.S. Department of Education. This is a widely recognized symbol of exemplary teaching and learning; we are extremely proud of our entire school community for working hard to make this honor possible.
