A Very Special Talent & Art Show

Greenbrier Public Schools is pleased to host A Very Special Talent & Art Show, an event for students with disabilities in central Arkansas. Students age 5-21 served in an area school served with an IEP are eligible to participate and encouraged to apply using the link with the logo below as soon as possible. Paper copies of the application may be requested from the special services office. The deadline for applications is Tuesday, March 31, 2020.

The talent and art show will be held on April 25, 2020 in the Greenbrier Schools Fine Arts Center, located near Greenbrier High School at 72 Green Valley Drive. Every participant will receive an award for their performance or art entry, a t-shirt, and talent participants have the option of scheduling a complimentary hair and/or makeup session, donated by local stylists.

This year’s theme is Lights, Camera, Action, so participants will receive the “red carpet treatment.” The goal is to make each student feel like a star! Individuals interested in volunteering or donating for the show may email huffmasterl@greenbrierschools.org.

Learner's Corner

As parents, we always want to know how our children’s day went at school. Have you ever asked your child, “How was your day?” and the answer you received was, “Fine.”? Here are some creative questions to ask your child to get them to open up about their day at school!

1. Tell me about a moment when you felt excited about what you learning today.

2. Was there a moment in class today when you felt confused?

3. What question do you have that came from your learning today?

4. Where there any moments when you felt proud of yourself today?

5. Tell me about a conversation you had with a classmate or friend.

6. What are you looking forward to tomorrow?

7. What did you learn about yourself today?

8. What did you appreciate about today?

9. What is something you learned today that challenged you?

10. Was there something you learned today that you want to know more about?

    How Does the Partnership Place Parent Center Work?

    • A teacher will fill a “prescription” out for your child with their need addressed (literacy/math and skill area)
    • Find an activity or game you and your child would enjoy playing
    • Take it to the Library to check out the item with Mrs. Stevens!
    • You do NOT have to have a prescription to check out an item! Always feel free to take a look around, check out what you and your family would enjoy, and return for someone else to enjoy!
