Yearbook Cover

Each year, students in all grades get the opportunity to submit a design for the yearbook. Of the entries, one is selected for the front cover. However, there also submissions that are printed on the back cover, as well as one on every class page. We attempt to put as many submissions in the yearbook as possible. The contest kicks off on Monday, October 21st. Your child will get more information in their art class (or classroom for kindergartners). The deadline for yearbook cover submissions is Friday, November 1st. More +

Roller Coaster Innovation

Students have been enjoying testing out the roller coasters  in the hallways that some fourth graders have recently created.   The designers of the roller coasters were challenged to work collaboratively with each other to make functional and innovative roller coasters.  Working through the research and design process, students have received feedback, made tweaks, and continued elaborating their creations.  Another key component for the project included a self reflection component for students in which they reflected on how they functioned as part of a team and how they worked through challenges.

Staff Learning

Staff Professional Learning

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.
