Mrs. Frischmann

Mrs. Frischmann has published another book!  You can find it HERE on Amazon.  Congratulations, and we look forward to seeing the next three that are scheduled for release this year!
Bike Vault Program

Help deter bicycle theft with Bike Vault, a free service from Grand Canyon National Park, South Rim Patrol.  Stolen bicycles registered with Bike Vault are reported to the National Crime Information Center so that every police officer in the USA knows whom the bike was stolen from.  Statistics suggest that 48% of all stolen bicycles are recovered by the police every year, but only 5% are returned to the rightful owner because they don’t know whom to return the bike to. Thieves think twice about riding a bike when every police officer knows it’s stolen!  Protect your property and deter criminals in your community with Bike VaultOfficer Phil will visit GCS on October 22 and teach you how to protect your bicycle in four easy steps -- click HERE for more information.

Principal's Forum

Daily Math Skills
 

Students in grades K-8 are now receiving the critically acclaimed Daily Math Skills curriculum available through Beyond Textbooks.  Teachers implement daily 20 minute math fact lessons to improve math fluency (speed + accuracy) so that students are able to perform computational tasks as well as higher level skills while not getting bogged down on the "ABC's of math."  Implementing Daily Math Skills in other school districts has historically demonstrated immediate gains on math AIMS scores, specifically the number of students who exceed the standard.
