The Gebhardt Elementary Open House is from 4:00-6:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 27. Please bring your school supplies and take the opportunity to meet your new teachers!
If you haven’t done so, please log in to http://www.ptcfast.com/schools/Gebhardt_Elementary to sign up for a time for your child to do his/her benchmark assessment (BAS) for literacy. This important assessment helps us to better meet your child’s needs at his/her personal reading level.
Online registration is open! Please log in to Family Access and review your child’s information to ensure we have the most current information for your child. A challenge we often face is having accurate phone numbers with folks switching cell phones, changing jobs, or similar circumstances. Thank you so much for your attention to this!!
At Gebhardt Elementary, we schedule our conferences electronically. Please use the link below and follow the directions for our fall benchmark assessment appointment on August 28th or August 31st. They will last 45 minutes, and you do not need to stay during the assessment. Class placements for 2015-2016 will come home with report cards, so please sign up for your time with the teacher listed. As the dates for the benchmark assessments come closer, you will be sent reminder emails if you have signed up. If you are a new enrollee or have questions, please contact email@example.com for more information. Don’t forget to “like” Gebhardt Elementary on Facebook!
Please find the K-5 supply list here.

This is the second installment of what Literacy Collaborative looks like in the School District of Black River Falls. Reader’s Workshop is one of the three blocks in the Literacy Collaborative framework.
The goal of this block for primary students (K-2nd) is for students to gain knowledge of the reading process through guided reading where students in small groups read texts selected to meet their specific needs and through independent reading where they read a variety of self-selected and teacher-selected texts. Students engage in conversation about literature and activities that support comprehension of texts. Other students at this time, when not receiving direct instruction, are actively engaged in independent reading, writing, and word study centers.
The goal of this block for intermediate students (3rd-5th) is for students to read for extended periods a variety of self-selected and teacher-selected texts at their instructional levels. They construct meaning through personal and textual connections demonstrated in weekly reading journal letters between students and teachers, regular meetings in guided reading groups, and literature study groups. Students internalize effective comprehension strategies that they apply to fiction and nonfiction texts.
Watch for more exciting literacy information to come!
