The Veterans Day Project will begin on Monday, October 28th through Wednesday, November 7th.
Families are asked to bring in supplies to support our troops serving overseas. Boxes will be on the stage in order to collect: toothpaste, toothbrushes, decks of cards, hand sanitizers, magazines, hard candy, powdered drink mix, chap-stick, baby wipes, and small toys such as balls and yo-yos.
Also, if you have a family member currently serving overseas, we would like to send them a care package. Please send their name and APO address to Mrs. Gould in the library or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for supporting our troops!
The non-school day on Friday, October 11th allowed the opportunity for staff to engage in an activity and conversation around organizational culture, diversity, and individuality. The activity was to address the district goal of Organizational Health:
Embracing the culture of Dublin City Schools’ staff, students, and families work collaboratively to create a positive climate in each school.
The learning and discussion during the day incorporated strategies to uphold and foster a community and school culture of acceptance through seeking to understand the differences in individuals. Congruent with our choose kind motto and start with hello initiative, our learning included activities and conversations that we can do with our students to further deepen our school community.
This professional learning also gave the staff time discuss the transition process with students and families that may be affected by redistricting. It is important that we prepare the students and families that may be leaving GRE with the skills to successfully acclimate to a new school community. In addition, it is equally important to prepare the students and families that will remain at GRE with the skills to successfully welcome the new families that will be joining our school community. These conversations and activities today were occuring at all 20 of the Dublin school buildings.
Thank you for making arrangements for your children to be home today. Again, it allowed valuable time for the staff to work together to further meet the needs of current and future students and families of GRE.
