Student Safety

Student safety is always our number 1 priority at the Gerner Center. Our cubs know the expectation is to remain with an adult at all times. Please remember to keep your child with you at all times when entering or leaving Gerner each night.

Summer School 2015

All students attending the Kindergarten Summer School need to be enrolled in kindergarten and summer school by May 6th.


Students enrolled in the Tuition Preschool summer program were automatically enrolled in the Kindergarten Summer School Program.


Students not attending Gerner Tuition Preschool MUST enroll in the Kindergarten Summer School program by May 6th in order to receive transportation. As a reminder, there is no before or after school care available for kindergarteners at the elementary sites. Students must enroll in Tuition Preschool and attend at Gerner if before/after care is needed through Park Hill School District.

Please contact April McFerran at 816-359-4601 if you have any questions.

Spring Fling Update!

Thank you so much to all of our families who contributed or attended the Spring Fling on April 18th! As all programs at Gerner are funded by state, federal or tuition provided by families, any technology or playground equipment is purchased through fundraising.

We raised $4908.25 as a building. Funds will be used to purchase the final two smart boards for Miss Fales' and Mrs. Powell's classrooms. Additional funds will be used towards PBIS incentives for students and staff and ECSE/Title I fall 2015 field trips.

Due to the inclement weather that day, the train and bounce houses will be here on May 21st for students to enjoy during their outdoor play times!

End of Year Celebration for 2015 Kindergarteners ~ May 15th

The End of Year Celebration is on Friday, May 15th. ECSE / Title I families need to arrive by 5:45 p.m. at the Park Hill High School Auditorium. Tuition Preschool families need to arrive by 6:45 p.m.

Seating is first come, first serve. Parents will first watch a slide show as students are preparing to enter the auditorium. Students will provide a wonderful singing program and then will exit out of the auditorium. Parents will pick up their child at the designated location and sign out through the teacher. It is crucial parents do not take their child without signing out for student safety.

More information about parking, classroom locations, etc. will be coming out the week prior to the End of Year Celebration.
