Mrs. Brandi Gray
Welcome to Music Class! My name is Mrs. Gray and I am so excited about starting my 17th year teaching both choral and general music. I am originally from Concord, NC which is right outside the Charlotte area. I graduated from Pfeiffer University with my bachelors degree in music education and shortly after married my sweet husband, Brandon. We have one son, Aiden and a labrador retriever named Max. Before coming to GKE, I taught chorus and general music in Cabarrus County schools for 13 years, served on the curriculum writing team for K-5 music and represented the county at NCDPI is assessing the effectiveness of ASW testing for music. I have also worked with adult choirs for the past 16 years. In my spare time, I enjoy water skiing and snow skiing and Panthers football. Go Panthers! I can't wait to connect and share music with each our our GKE students this year.

We are offering a new opportunity for our families this winter break. Parents are invited to sign up to receive holiday meal kits that will be distributed from all of our high school sites. Each meal kit will include seven days of packaged breakfast and lunch meals per child.
Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
