Supts On! – April 4, 2018

Gibbon Public Schools is taking a serious look at the protocols and procedures associated with School Safety. This serious look involves revisiting language and expectations for students and staff, reviewing information for different drills and our response to each situation, and setting the stage that being familiar with our safety protocols and procedures is the responsibility of our entire family. Students and Staff.

The past two weeks, representatives from our safety and crisis teams presented information on Gibbon Public School’s Standard Response Protocol to staff and secondary students. Our goal is to strengthen our approach to school safety while increasing the level of knowledge connected to the Standard Response Protocol. Reviewing information is the first step.

Practicing different scenarios will be our next step, and learning from each time we practice a drill will help us improve procedure and protocol. On March 28th,  we practiced our processes and protocols associated with a Tornado Drill. This went well and we are in the process of evaluating how we might improve our approach to this particular situation. In addition, we feel it is important to share with the community of Gibbon that our intention within the next few weeks is to take our students and staff through another drill focused on a different situation. Please be on the lookout for more information on our next drill.

Please do not hesitate to contact me or the school if you have any questions or suggestions on how we
might improve. School Safety is a family issue, and in Gibbon, #WeAreFamily.

Continuous Improvement – Calendar Change

The Gibbon Public Schools is committed to continuous school improvement and dedicated to raising the level of academic performance required of all students. Providing professional development where educators are trained in the areas of unpacking academic standards, creating a strong curriculum, identifying levels of performance expected of all students, and developing classroom assessments to determine that students achieve the level of performance established for them is absolutely critical in the support of this commitment.

We share this information because a change in the district calendar will take place to offer the time
necessary for quality professional development. April 11, 2018, was originally scheduled as a 1:00 p.m. dismissal for school improvement. The change, there will be NO SCHOOL on April 11th so that our education family can participate in a full-day of professional development in the areas mentioned above. We value your support and appreciate your patience while we make this subtle change to the school calendar.

Thank You!

Supts On! – Preparing Students for College and Career

Preparing Students for College and Career

Supts On! by Dr. Fisher

Gibbon Public Schools is constantly focused on successfully preparing our students for life after high school.  Accomplishing this meaningful task requires school districts to continuously examine current practices and determine if those practices reflect what is occurring in the real-world.  We are looking at increasing academic and behavioral expectations, redesigning courses required for graduation, and connecting our curriculum to real-world experiences to determine if these experiences truly prepare students for life after high school. These goals will….

Gibbon Nation – Featuring Gibbon Varsity Cheerleaders

Hey Gibbon Nation.  Did you know our cheerleaders host a cheer camp for our youth?  The Gibbon Cheerleader Team held a cheerleader camp in September and we wish to celebrate this event.


During the week of September 5th through the 9th, the cheerleaders hosted a “Little Buffs Cheer Camp” for ages preschool through 6th grade.  WE had a wonderful turnout with thirty-seven students participating in this event.  Our youngsters practice cheers with the varsity cheerleaders for three days.  The culminating activities included the opportunities to cheer along with the Gibbon cheerleaders for the first half of the varsity football game versus North Platte St. Pats, ending the camp with a performance of a couple of new cheers at halftime.  Sponsors for the camp were Code 3 BBQ, Lambert’s Family Pharmacy, Show Stopper Kites, Lonnie Jurgens Company, Mark Jurgens Construction Inc., and Jacobsen Orr.  The cheerleader family wishes to thank these sponsors for their donations and support of the Gibbon Varsity Cheerleaders.
