The first Greylock Talk of the year will take place THIS THURSDAY, Oct 29th, during Directed Study. Our speaker is a senior at Williams from Jamaica, Christian Alberga. Christian is deeply committed to global sustainability and has set a personal goal to make Jamaica 100% renewable in his lifetime. Christian is also member of the Jamaican National Swim Team and the Williams Swim team.
Dear Mount Greylock Community,
While there are many things that are different about this school year, we are glad to announce that student government will continue to play a vital role in the Mount Greylock community. After three days of voting that took place through google forms, results are in from the 2020 Mount Greylock Student Government elections.
I wanted to let you know that the @mgmounties Instagram account is posting MG news, people, and events EVERY day. For example, earlier this week we highlighted and thanked our hardworking cafeteria staff, and yesterday and today we spotlighted our two awesome new music teachers - Mr. O'Connell and Mrs. Vinette.
If you are an Instagram user, give us a follow! (@mgmounties)
The following list includes the co-curricular offerings we are planning to be able to offer at Mount Greylock this school year. This list may be adjusted as regulations change and as organizations are added through student proposal. This list will also be published on the school website.
Update: Changes made to timeline | Student elections are around the corner. Consider running for a seat on the Student Council or School Council or role as a Class Officer. Descriptions of these roles are available below.
The MG community came together last Friday for our first virtual whole school assembly. After hearing some nuts and bolts from Mr. Schutz and Mr. Shebar, Mrs. Barrett introduced the students to the young adult history book, and the first-ever MGRS school-wide read, Stamped: Racism, Antiracism and You, by Jason Reynolds and Ibram Kendi. Mrs. Barrett then invited everyone to a live virtual discussion with Mr. Reynolds, who is an award-winning, bestselling young adult author and the current National Ambassador for Young People's Literature.

We are happy to say that we are holding our annual wreath sale this year, though it will be a little modified due to COVID. Pickup location will now be at Lanesborough Fire Station, and wreath pickup will be outdoors under the shed. Supplies will be limited, so order early!
I am attaching our flyer with details and prices (same as last year: $25, 35, 50).
Looking forward to seeing you all on Wreath Sale day!
Chromebook screens are fragile! Sleeves and cases are beneficial, but will not necessarily protect the screen from heavy books in a backpack. Now that students are once again transporting materials to and from school, we recommend that they carry their Chromebook cases independently - and not put them inside their backpacks- to best avoid any damage.
We are currently accepting applications to fill a Lanesborough vacancy of the Mount Greylock Regional School Committee. This will be a two year appointment to serve until the term expires in November 2022.
