April Fools Fun!

A few teachers around the district had some April fools fun! Mrs. Ostrem has a scientist of the month board that students help her decorate each month. These boys took it over today and made Dr. Doofenshmitrz from Phineas and Ferb the scientist of the day! Mrs. Weber brought the students brownies (brown E’s)!

Thank You Bus Drivers!

Leader In Me is a framework that teaches students what leadership means and can look like. Leader In Me teaches students 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and 5 Core Paradigms to see leadership in a different light. At Gilbert, we give the students different opportunities to show leadership with different committees. Every month, students have the opportunity to apply for a different leadership role! The leadership roles can range from Door Greeter, to Office Assistant, to Photographer, and anywhere in between.

Mrs. May is in charge of the kindness group for Leader In Me. She had her students work on a thank you card for the bus drivers for all of their hard work they do for our district. On February 14th, we delivered this card to the bus barn and gave the bus drivers a little treat.

We really appreciate everything the bus drivers do for our students. Be sure to ask your student about their leadership roles. To learn more about Leader in me, click here!
