Mount Greylock Regional School Accolades

September - October 2019

Two years ago, a staple of School Committee meetings and the website, Accolades tried to capture the various successes of the Mount Greylock community - students and staff alike - in and out of school.  Some accomplishments have been noted in other venues like our Twitter accounts @MG Mounties and @AthleticsMG or new Instagram accounts @MGMounties and @ActivitiesMG. We look forward to its return as a round-up of some of the great things our school community members do. Students, staff and families are welcomed to share news for future publications to mmacdonald@mgrhs.org.
