Dear Parents:

Welcome back from spring break! We hope everyone enjoyed down time and is now ready for the final sprint of the school year. It’s hard to believe that in just two short months our Class of 2019 will graduate!

In the meantime, please note that re-enrollment contracts and related information were emailed to current parents before spring break. If you did not receive any communication from the school, please contact Mrs. Alma Nieves (anieves@ghcds.org or 340.778.1974).

A quick congratulations goes to Ms. Bishop (2nd), Ms. Fitzgerald (3rd), and Ms. Hill (3rd) for their acceptance into the Units of Study Writing summer workshop at Teacher’s College, Columbia University. Last summer we were thrilled that Ms. Sundaram (6th) and Ms. Cerni (K) were invited to attend. Robust professional development opportunities like these will continue to help strengthen our writing program overall—and we hope that all our K-8 language faculty members will eventually have a chance to receive this training.

Similarly, next week our 6-12th grade math team (Ms. Dykstra, Ms. Cole, Ms. Baker, and Ms. Holt) will receive on-site CPM (College Prep Math) coaching from Susan Hoffmeier. Susan provided helpful training last year as well in Year 1 of the program implementation, and we look forward to continuing to improve. Bridges (K-5 math) coaching will take place April 17-18.

Another congratulation goes to our Math Counts Team who placed 2nd in yesterday’s Math Counts Territory competition.

Lastly, we are counting down the days until our Mamma Mia! Musical—rehearsals are going strong!

Have a wonderful weekend,

Kari

Around Campus

Geometry students use real and virtual blocks to explore surface area and volume of a solid and develop procedures for finding those quantities. In our problem-based math curricula, students develop a deeper understanding of the traditional algorithms through exploration and collaboration.
