You can see from the graph below how the implementation of the staff incentive program paired with the booster lessons more than doubled the amount of paws received.

Please turn in your paws weekly to Terrann. We will be placing our drawing at the end of the month. Our goal for June is 400 paws!!! Students and staff will receive an extra water day in July if we meet our goal!

Rigor and Relevance ~ The Learning Continues!

Earlier this week, Terrann emailed out the curriculum calendar. We will continue to focus on our daily jolly phonics, read alouds, and provided facilitated learning activities during small group instruction (even though it's summer!). Several parents last summer demonstrated concerns with the number of water days occurring and lack of instruction taking place in the classrooms over the summer months. Parents are continuing to pay for an educational experience over the summer months.

Due to parent feedback and our continuous focus on preparing our students for kindergarten, each classroom may only sign up for one water day per month (June and July). Students have an opportunity for water play through the indoor and outdoor sensory tables daily.

Sign up for your water days at:


Early Room Arrival

Tomorrow, students will be seated by their kindergarten classroom with cones at each table to help with the transition to the kindergarten rooms after breakfast. Please make sure students have name tags on for the first week of summer school.

Lost Child - Counting & Calling Names prior to Transitions

As a reminder, teachers should be counting students and calling names with the transition sheets throughout the day in the classroom, as well as when leaving the classroom or other location in the building. Just counting students alone doesn't guarantee you have all students with you. Keeping our students safe is the top priority at Gerner!
