Extra Opportunity: Buffalo Round Up Wednesday Nov. 15th

Wednesday November 15th is an early out for GPS students.  There will be an extra Buffalo Round Up hosted in the Distance Learning room from 1:00-3:00 PM Wednesday afternoon.  All students on the ICU list are encouraged to attend to get work completed.

Remember the ICU list is a communication tool.  All assignments are all important to a student’s education.  By using the ICU list, teachers can communicate to parents when a student has not done their part in the education process.  This is not punishment, it is just a reminder that a student needs to complete their work in order to learn all that we have set out to learn, meaning, the Nebraska State Standards.

Encourage your student to take advantage of the Buffalo Round Up opportunities!  Daily, Buffalo Round Up is offered before school (starting at 7 AM), after school (until 5:00 PM), and over lunch.
