  9/7/18 Happy Friday from Gill Elementary School! Thank you all for a wonderful first week! I have spoken with a number of people who have been impressed by the intangible “feel” of the school this year. Kids seem happy, and comfortable (if a little warm) and there is a strong sense of community. We all feel fortunate to be part of that community. This afternoon, we held our first All School Meeting. A reminder that the first Friday of every month is an all-school meeting, and that the third Friday of every month is a school sing. We introduced our monthly theme which...
  Dear Hillcrest Families, We’re all together now!  It’s been wonderful to have all of our students here at Hillcrest this week.

Next week, we’ll hold our first Hillcrest Spirit Day on Friday, September 14th. On that day, our theme will be Sports and all Hillcrest students and staff members are invited to wear their...
Dear Sheffield Families, I send a newsletter home with students once a week, on Thursdays, along with other notices from the school. We'll post the newsletters on the school's website, too, so you can always find them there, too. Here's this week's news: Dismissal at the end of the day was changed mid-year last year and I neglected to include the change in my August newsletter. At the 3:15 dismissal all fourth and fifth grade students exit out the front doors of the school. All second and third grade students exit the side door toward the parking lot and Montague Street. This change...
Show your Sheffield Pride!  Sheffield School's first Spirit Day of the year will be Wednesday morning 9/12  (it's a 1/2 day).   We will do a combined "CLASH DAY &/OR TIE DAY" …it gives folks a couple of ways to participate!  "Clash" means in a fashion sense: really bright colors, mismatched socks, stripes with spots, plaids with stripes, etc.  Ties can be made of paper/cardboard, neck ties, bow ties, hair ties, etc.  A great day for tie-dyed shirts!  All clothing must be appropriate per handbook guidelines.  No hair dyes or face paints at...
Great Falls Challenge is an annual tradition held on the afternoon of the second day of school. After spending most of the first two days of school in their CPR (Circle of Power and Respect, or Advisory) groups learning about and practicing schoolwide and grade-level routines, on Friday afternoon middle school students head out to the football field with a bottle of water to show what they know.  They form into mixed grade-level tams of three and travel from teacher to teacher answering questions and making connections. This photograph was taken at the end of a successful afternoon under...
