Geneva Faculty and Families:
BIG NEWS! Geneva Elementary School will live on. We will remain together in our building for at least the next few years. All are happy about this. We appreciate the input that members of our school-community shared with our leaders and elected officials. We are grateful to these leaders for keeping us together at our site.
PTA provided us with another wonderful Fall Carnival. All had a great time. Many activities and events were provided. The Cake Walk and Dunk Tank seemed to be big hits, once again. Way to go PTA!
Our Transformation Day went well on October 7th. About 150 people participated from our community, with Student Council, folks and families from Fidelity, Inc and “Hands-on” coming together to make it a great Autumn day of service. Many hours were donated to beautify and spruce up our building and grounds. Fidelity also donated STEAM materials and iPads. We are so grateful for these two tremendous organizations and all they have done these last two years. A big thank you to all who participated.
On October 25th we will conduct our first STEAM Night at 6:00. We invite our patrons to come celebrate this evening with us. STEAM stands for: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. These skills are being enhanced among our 4th, 5th & 6th grades as we endeavor to prepare our students for the 21st Century learning and work force.

May each of you have a festive Autumn Season and enjoy this time of year of giving, sharing and celebrating. As always, come serve with us at Geneva. “We are Family!”
Remember: “Read with your CHILD!” Our academic goal includes helping 100% of our students to make progress in reading and to increase our/their reading proficiency to 75%-80% on DIBELS.
