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.

Board Meeting Minutes–October 16

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.

Go Buffs
