IMPORTANT THOUGHTS FROM THE Jewel City School COMMUNITY

THINGS PEOPLE APPRECIATE

Everyone is very friendly –

Student population –

I appreciate working with the community that we serve at our school. I feel a great sense of pride in knowing that we as a staff are teaching our kids. Our families are working families that need all the support they can get. Our school offers great programs that provide enrichment opportunities.

Appreciate this year –

1.As a teacher I appreciate the collaboration between teachers. The trainings allows teachers to discuss what they are doing that works in their own classroom.

family involvement –

Efforts by principals, teachers, support staff –

It has been a tough, overwhelming year. More piled on plates and nothing taken off yet. Lots of exploration but no known roadmaps yet with CCSS.

SOME CONCERNS

Technology resources are inside the classroom are outdated. –

Desktops, keyboards, mouses, headphones, and CD players are most in poor condition.

Our budget for supplies for outdoor play are very limited –

Inadequate space –

There continues to be inadequate appropriate space for all of the programs on campuses.

Budgets for our programs –

Report Cards –

The new Report Card this year is causing a lot of confusion and frustration among students and staff. With so many changes taking place in conjunction with the Common Core State Standards, it seems we are asking too much from teachers, administrators, and parents all at once.

OTHER THOUGHTS SHARED

I love to see our afterschool programs growing –

GUSD is a great district –

I appreciate how hard the individuals in our district work. I think that overall things work pretty well, and that everyone always has the students’ and the community’s best interests in mind. I am grateful to be a part of this team.

Changes, construction, departmental shifts, etc. ===== take lots of effort –

Effort going out for moves, construction, departmental shifts, etc. Effort is mental, physical, and emotional. Lots of withdrawals with very few deposits.

It really support parents and kids –

Cleaning out unwanted supplies would be more organized –
