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.

Please join us this Friday, November 10, at the Veterans Day Program to honor and thank all of our local veterans for their service and sacrifice.

A coffee reception will be held in the commons area afterwards for all veterans and their families.
On November 7, Mrs. Quinteros and Mrs. Waddle took 26 Gibbon High School students to UNL to attend the Latino Leadership Symposium.

By attending this event, they are also now eligible to receive UNL’s Emerging Leaders Tuition Scholarship worth $2,000 which is renewable for four academic years!
