Gables Weekly Summary


Pastries with the Principal: PBIS/SEL

Next Friday's Pastries with the Principal will feature a special guest, Ms. Jacquie Pencek, our regional PBIS Coordinator. She will explain PBIS and SEL in our school and present strategies on how to continue them at home. This is an important topic - parents and guardians should attend the Zoom if possible!

  • Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) is a framework that districts use to promote and celebrate positive behavior.
  • Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is the process of helping students develop the skills they need to succeed in school and life - skills like emotion regulation and social awareness.

CCS Transportation Contact Info

Save the Transportation number (614-365-5074) in your contacts in case buses are running late. The best source for information - morning and afternoon - is the Transportation department.

Keep Parent Portal Current

Keep your contact information current in the Parent Portal (especially email and phone numbers). Given current weather and COVID-19 reports, last-minute changes to school could happen. In those cases, the district uses the information you have on file to notify you.
