Geneva Faculty and Families:
Welcome to Geneva Elementary School for the 2017-18 school year. We are excited to make this “The Best Year Ever” for our staff, students and community.
We are pleased to announce that two new great things will be part of our school. First of all we are now a 21st Century STEAM School. We were accepted into this program last Spring. This will be made available to our 4th-6th grade students. Their teachers and others staff received training in June. STEAM stands for: S-Science; T-Technology; E-Engineering; A-Arts; M-Math. Students will participate in a hands-on approach in math and science, using technology and engineering strategies to enhance their learning this year. We will also do a few activities with students in lower grades. We feel that this will better prepare our students for future educational, employment and citizenship opportunities. Geneva is STEAMing ahead!
Secondly, our first grade teachers and students will be part of a reading cohort that will allow us to increasingly focus on reading skill development. It is paramount that we build a strong reading foundation with respect to our students’ learning experience in their early childhood years. We are excited for this chance to serve our first grade.
We will continue to have “Family Nights” and family activities and welcome you to Geneva Elementary School. Please stop by the office and sign-in. Then go volunteer in your child’s classroom. We need our parents to be our partners with us at Geneva.
In September we will again have our annual “Fall Carnival”. More information will be provided as we get closer. We look forward to seeing you at Open House on August 21st , 4:30-5:30. Come visit your child’s teacher. Information is provided on Skyward and will be posted on the door of each teacher’s classroom instead of on the front doors, to ensure student privacy in the public.
Remember: “Read with your Child”. Keep it Simple: Work! Learn! Have Fun! That is what we will do at Geneva this year. Join us!
