As many of you are aware, Green City Elementary School was identified as a Focus School by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education during the 2012 school year. This identification was due to having low achievement of those students identified as a part of a subgroup. This subgroup consisted of students who received free/reduced priced lunch, racial/ethnic background, English language learners, and students with disabilities. The achievement of these group of students were in the bottom 5%-15% of the schools in the state who receive federal money through Title programs over a 3 year period of . . .

“So what’s in our stands?”. ..Hopefully, respectful fans. As I sit in the stands during ballgames (of which there have been plenty over the years), it is interesting to watch the fans and hear the verbal messages sent out. I have come to realize the huge impact that those messages have on the players, coaches, other fans, and most importantly...our children. There are times of frustration when our team is not performing up to their potential; times of excitement when the teams experience success; and those times when our emotions flow out through our mouths. It has been through moments of . . .

It’s official – we have six more weeks of winter. This winter’s weather has been very wishy-washy, switching from very mild to very cold and back again. Our students sometimes forget it IS still winter, and don’t button up their coats or wear hats and gloves when going outside. Many are suffering from earaches, head colds, and stomach flu symptoms right now. Please help keep your kids well with plenty of fluids, increased hand washing, and proper bedtimes with a full night’s sleep. Wearing layers of clothing to school helps them be comfortable in the classrooms, making it easier for them to . . .
Students in the third grade have had a quick start to the New Year. The first couple weeks were spent completing assessments, reviewing expectations, and reestablishing classroom routines. While doing this, we also participated in Innovation Day where students were able to create and produce a project of their choice based on what interested them. Last week, we celebrated our 100 th Day of School. This allowed for reflection time on how our school year has gone so far and where we would like to be by the end of the year. Each month third grade students fill out a form to track their monthly progress towards this end of the year . . .
The fifth graders at GC have been busy this month! When we came back from Christmas break, we had our innovation day. We've been working on completing Solar System Projects and we celebrated our 100th day of school! Our innovation day was a success. The students had the opportunity to choose any topic they wished. They were then given time to research their project and created a supply list. We had crafts, woodworking, cooking, building, paper mache and even research/poster presentations. Students were given one whole day at school to complete their project. This was a wonderful learning process for . . .
