Parents, students, and Community Members,
Welcome to Giant City School 2016-2017! We are ready for another amazing school year! Over the summer the support staff and I have been very busy! The custodial staff have worked hard painting, cleaning, and waxing in preparation for the students' arrival. Our office staff have been filling out reports and running off registration packets and handbooks.
In May the school marked its first anniversary with the Little Giants Daycare. We would like to thank all of the families that have helped to make this program such a success! We currently have full and part-time slots available. Children ages 2-5 years may be served from 7:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. each weekday. The daycare is DCFS licensed and is open year round. In August, we expect the daycare to be filled to capacity once again.
Last year we began Student Led Parent/Teacher Conferences. Throughout the school year each student prepared a portfolio of their work and made goals for reading and math. During the P/T Conference the students attended with their parent to explain their progress towards the goals. This year we will add a second Student Led Conference in the spring as children prepare to move to the next grade level.
Giant City has been able to maintain its extra-curricular acitivities through the support of GCSPA and the Booster Club. Our students have benefited from these experiences and we look forward to continued positive relationships with both of these groups.
