2016-17 Elementary Teacher Requests

Posted by on Feb 29, 2016 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

If you are interested in requesting a teacher for your child for the upcoming school year, please complete the information on the link below. List up to three teacher requests.  At least three requests are required in order for your request to be considered and allow us to balance classroom assignments.  Parent requests should be made on sound educational criteria.  Please resist the urging of your child to make requests based upon friends.

It is not always possible to honor requests; we need to equally balance homerooms.

In the event of a staff resignation or reassignment, your child will remain in the originally assigned homeroom.

This request form must be returned to the Principal of your child’s 2016-2017 assigned school in order to be considered, no later than:

Gebhardt Family Survey

Posted by on Feb 29, 2016 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Hello Gebhardt families!

It is time for a very important part of our planning to take place and that is to get your input! Everything we do here at school is to serve you and our students the best way possible. If there is a way we can do things better, we want to know. If there are things we are doing well that we should continue, we’d love to celebrate and carry on with those things, too. Attached is a link to an anonymous survey that we ask you to complete. It is 10 short questions and should only take about 5 minutes to complete. Your feedback is our gift and we appreciate the time and effort you put in to give us your thoughts. To make it a little more fun, we’ve decided to have a little contest between Gebhardt and Third Street Elementary families to see who has the best turn out. The school with the best response rate will get popcorn to enjoy here at school!! Please use the link below to take part in our survey.

Gebhardt to hold open house August 27

Posted by on Aug 17, 2015 in News | 0 comments

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 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!!
