Gulf Shores Middle School taking distance learning to a fun new level


Gulf Shores Middle School may be closed to students but that hasn’t kept principal Robert McCartney from connecting with his students on a virtual level.

McCartney has been creating daily Distance Learning Broadcasts for his school as students and parents learn to navigate this new form of learning in this unprecedented time.

The videos, posted on the school’s YouTube Channel, Gulf Shores MS Broadcast, include important reminders about school resources, educational segments, special guests and examples of McCartney’s athletic prowess.

Mr. Prince has conducted science experiments, superintendent Matt Akin answered questions and gave updates and shown parents and students how to navigate virtual work. These videos are more than announcements, they are connecting the school and community and bringing school into your home.

The videos can be watched daily on the Gulf Shores Middle School Facebook page or Gulf Shores MS Broadcast channel on YouTube.
