Proposed Science Resources for Elementary Schools
A teacher selection committee has recommended the adoption of STEMscopes as the new primary Science resource for GBSD elementary classrooms. STEMscopes is a phenomena-based digital curriculum that is brought to life through hands-on experiences and student-driven inquiry.
With school board and budget approval this spring, STEMscopes will be rolled out in two phases. Grades 3-5 will begin implementation during the 2019-2020 school year and grades K-2 will implement the following year. STEMscopes was recently adopted as the primary Science resource for grades 6-8 in GBSD classrooms as well.
If you are interested in learning more about STEMscopes, please click the link above. Reach out to Director of Teaching and Learning at firstname.lastname@example.org with your feedback or questions.

TRANSPORTATION HOME CHANGES
If you know that you are going to be making a change to your child’s Transportation Home, on any given day, we would appreciate a call before 2:30pm. This way, your child and all staff involved will know in plenty of time so we can avoid any end of the day confusion.
Thank you for your understanding
The State of Oregon now requires schools to notify parents of their immunization exemption rates for each required vaccine. These rates will now be posted on our school’s website, in our school office and sent home to parents twice a year. The rates attached are the exemption rates as of last spring. Schools are required to publish this information twice each school year. Approximately the second week of March we will post the updated rates. These new rates are collected and tallied in mid February.
El Estado de Oregón requiere que las escuelas notifiquen a los padres de las tasas de excepciones de inmunización para cada vacuna requerida. Estas nuevas tasas serán publicados en la página web de nuestra escuela, en la oficina de la escuela, y se enviaran a los padres dos veces al año. Las tasas adjuntas son las tasas de exención en cuanto la primavera pasada. Las escuelas están obligadas a publicar esta información dos veces cada año escolar. Aproximadamente la segunda semana de Marzo vamos a publicar las tarifas actualizadas. Estas nuevas tarifas son coleccionadas y contadas a mediados del mes de Febrero.
