Gaiser News

October 2021

Hello Gaiser Families,


Well, we are a month in and the kids are settling in as well as the teachers. We are plugging right along and getting kids settled into the curriculum, textbooks and activities! Our sports teams are playing well and showing positive spirit. I appreciate the fans that have shown up for football, volleyball and our cross country meets. I actually had another principal express how well our supporters travel to away games! Way to show Gaiser spirit.


In the classes our students have been working hard. There is a lot that our teachers are trying to do as the last 2 years have provided different opportunities for our students in terms of learning. As I walk into classes the teachers have multiple different activities for students to show their learning. We keep plugging away and challenging your students to be the best they can be.


It is always a pleasure to go to work. Our students have such a variety of personalities, I enjoy meeting and talking with them about their classes, their day, and their interests.


Take care and stay well,


Esteban Delgadillo

Principal

Hola familias de Gaiser,


Bueno, llevamos un mes y los niños se están instalando tan bien como los maestros. ¡Estamos trabajando para que los niños se adapten al plan de estudios, los libros de texto y las actividades! Nuestros equipos deportivos están jugando bien y mostrando un espíritu positivo. Agradezco a los fanáticos que se han presentado para el fútbol, ​​el voleibol y nuestros encuentros de campo traviesa. ¡De hecho, otro director expresó lo bien que nuestros seguidores viajan a los partidos fuera de casa! Manera de mostrar el espíritu de Gaiser.


En las clases nuestros estudiantes han estado trabajando duro. Nuestros maestros están tratando de hacer mucho, ya que los últimos 2 años han brindado diferentes oportunidades para nuestros estudiantes en términos de aprendizaje. Cuando entro en las clases, los maestros tienen varias actividades diferentes para que los estudiantes muestren su aprendizaje. Seguimos conectando y desafiando a sus estudiantes a ser lo mejor que puedan ser.


Siempre es un placer ir a trabajar. Nuestros estudiantes tienen una gran variedad de personalidades, disfruto conocerlos y hablar con ellos sobre sus clases, su día y sus intereses.


Cuidate y mantente bien


Esteban Delgadillo

Principal
