school School Store

At the first of the school, we sent out flyers about School Store. Many of you signed you child/children up for it. Now is a great time to be using it! Tompkinsville Elementary can make money that will be used for our students, and it is very EASY to do. If you are shopping online, go first to www.schoolstore.net, find Tompkinsville Elementary, and then click on merchants. It is that easy! The prices will be the same as it is on the store website. There are over 400 stores to choose from, for instance Wal-Mart, Target, Children’s Place, The Gap, etc. So I know that this is an extras step, but it is a quick step. TES has earned $60 already from great parents like you, but we could be making more money. Feel free to tell grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc., that they can also go through this site to order online.

Campus Safety Improvements at MCHS and MCMS

Beginning December 8, 2017


  • During school hours access to Monroe County High School and Monroe County Wellness Center will be from Old Mulkey Rd.
  • Access to Monroe County Middle School will be from Gamaliel Rd. 
  • Chains will be up from 8:00am to 2:30pm. 
  • This will allow us to have better control of the traffic on the MCHS and MCMS campuses which will provide a safer campus for our students and staff.
  • We have experienced drivers using the campuses as an access road from Gamaliel Rd. to Old Mulkey Rd.  During the school day we have students who use the area between the schools for physical education and other activities.  To reduce the risk of someone getting hurt, we are closing access from Gamaliel Rd. to Old Mulkey Rd. during school hours.
  • In the near future, we will be installing a check-in station at the entry of MCHS.  This will allow us to monitor who enters and exits the student parking lot.

solar Solar Eclipse Information


Gamaliel Elementary School will be in the path of totality on August 21, 2017.  The eclipse will begin at 12:00 pm and will reach totality at 1:29 pm.  Totality will last for approximately 1 minute and 29 seconds. 

During the solar eclipse, all Monroe County students in grades 4th - 12th will be transported to Gamaliel Elementary School to participate in activities and view the period of totality.  Families wishing to have their child(ren) in 4th - 12th participate in the viewing will need to sign and date the waiver going home with students today.  Click here to download a copy of the waiver. 

Students in grades K-3 will have the opportunity to view the solar eclipse from NASA's live stream via technology in the classroom.  This will allow our primary students to safely view the event with their peers. 

Any student who does not have a signed waiver in grades 4th - 12th will view the eclipse from the NASA live stream inside their school building. 

Due to the number of students that will be on the GES campus, there will not be any parking or space for public viewing.  However, there will be various spots throughout the community of Gamaliel for public observation. 

Parents wishing to watch the eclipse with their child(ren) may choose to check them out of school to view the eclipse at one of the public viewing areas prior 10:30 am at each school's location. 

Students will not be dismissed to parents while at the Gamaliel Elementary School location.
