Ongoing Goals…..

Improving English Language Arts and Math achievement.

Standardizing communication between home and school.

There are many advantages to K-8 schools, including smaller class sizes for 7th and 8th grades and more individualized attention at such a crucial age.  Unfortunately, smaller class sizes result in fewer elective options (foreign language, technology, woodworking, etc) for our middle school students.  The school's SAC is committed to finding a solution.

Determine how classroom teachers, related arts (specials: art. music, P.E.), and parents can work together to offer more project-based learning opportunities for our students.  This type of learning is hard-work on everyone’s part, but studies show that it is far more enjoyable and memorable.  Project-based learning also provides students with more relevant experiences that prepare them for the real-world and provide better comprehension of complex subjects.  The basics are also presented and learned in project-based learning, so don’t worry, our students will still learn reading, writing and math – it’ll just be easier and more fun to remember.  Many of our teachers currently use project-based learning in their classrooms and SAC would like to see it expanded to all classrooms. 

What ideas do you have for Gonzales Community School?  You’re invited to share them at the next SAC meeting.
