SGS ACADEMIC TEAM:  Salyersville Grade School has participated in Kentucky Association for Academic Competition (KAAC) events since 2013. Until 6th grade classes were relocated to Herald Whitaker Middle School in Fall 2016, SGS had both a 6th grade and 4th/5th grade team. 

KAAC events consist of written assessments in arts & humanities, science, social studies, mathematics, and writing composition as well as quick recall. To date, the combined number of medals awarded to SGS is 47 for individual assessments and quick recall.

The 2016/2017 4th/5th grade team is composed of 11 students all of whom have worked diligently to increase their overall content knowledge and problem solving skills.
