Summer Reading Challenge
Summer Reading Challenge 2015
Gum Springs Elementary School is challenging students to read 40 books or 20 hours this summer. This is the same challenge that has been set by your local public library branch! This means that you can visit your local library this summer to check out some amazing books and to fill out a reading log with the same books that you are including for your school reading log. Completed reading logs are due Wednesday, August 12th. Students who read the designated number of books or complete their 20 hours of reading, will be able to participate in a fun and exciting activity at GSES! Check out the Summer Reading Challenge website for more information: http://jcssummerreading.weebly.com/
Stakeholder Input Needed
Jackson County School System is seeking community input in reviewing and revising our Comprehensive LEA Improvement Plan (CLIP) and System Parent Involvement Plan.
These plans help school systems coordinate their federal programs so the needs of the students can be met.
The goals for federal programs are:
- Improve student achievement
- Provide professional development and growth opportunities
- Improve parent involvement in their children's education
If you would like to make suggestions and review the plans, we welcome you to attend our upcoming meeting:
May 26th at 6:00 p.m. or May 27th at 8:00 a.m. at the Jackson County Central Office.
Gum Springs Elementary School understands the importance of utilizing technology to stay connected with our parents and community. Please click here for more information!
