MRS. STEPHANIE APPLEGATE - 8th Grade Homeroom Teacher + All Middle School English Language Arts (ELA)
The eighth grade year at GMC is a fast paced year for the students. Core Academics include Algebra/Integrated Math 1, English Language Arts, Physical Science, U.S. History, Religion and Spanish. Art is interwoven in the curriculum. Online programs are integrated and support all areas of the curriculum.
Eighth graders have a requirement of service hours for graduation as they focus on the Mission Statement to learn, lead and serve in the Spirit of Jesus Christ.
Eighth grade traditions include a retreat focused on preparing for high school, flour baby simulation, passing of wisdom to the 7th grade students and special individual yearbook pages.
The 8th grade year is an exciting and wonderful culminating experience.
