The ConVal School District has been fortunate to be involved in the viewings of 3 movies as part of a mental health trilogy. We have had community viewings for UPSTANDERS in October and LIKE in February. The final movie, ANGST will be shown to the community on May 5th from 6-8 PM. Please follow this link to register your family to view the community viewing of ANGST.
Register now! The second installment of the Mental Health Film Trilogy is scheduled for Wednesday, February 24th at 6:00pm. LIKE is an IndieFlix Original documentary about finding a balance in our digital world. Technology is a tool. It’s here to stay and social platforms are a place to connect, share and care, but what’s really happening?
Students in Ms. Cullinan’s advisory created memes about school and learning this year. Students are experiencing a year like no other and Ms. Cullinan encourages students to connect with each other in many ways through their shared experiences. Head over to our Facebook page to see some more student memes.
On December 15, we heard from Sarah Paradis (a district Speech Therapist), that her 5 year old son was adamant about doing something to help others. After looking into a few options, they settled on donating snacks and other non-perishables to GBS. On Friday, December 18th they delivered their donation. Thank you so much to the Paradis family.
As we come to the week of Thanksgiving, I have so many things to be thankful for.
I am thankful for…
…the whole Bobcat community for welcoming me as the new principal here at GBS in such an unprecedented time. Your grace, flexibility, and understanding has been humbling.
…an amazing staff,
Students and teachers at GBS are re-imagining how to “do school” this year. Even though we can’t use most of our tents yet, classes are happening outside. Students are connecting with their teachers, as well as their in-person and remote peers. Teachers are finding new and creative ways to engage their students academically while supporting their social-emotional needs.
Even though our tents aren’t quite ready for use – teachers are still taking advantage of the good weather to conduct classes outside. We are anticipating the good news that we can use the tents as outdoor learning spaces, but until then…we will get creative!
On September 8, 2020 Great Brook School opened its doors (physical and virtual) to welcome students back to school. With safety measures in place such as health screenings, temperature checks, mask wearing, and physical distancing, students joined the teachers in the building. Although not all of our students are back in the building yet, we are providing instruction to our “Remote Bobcats”
Dear Bobcat Community,
On Friday, the district will send out the draft of our reopening plan. We anticipate that you may have questions and we would like to invite you to a GBS community meeting to get answers to those questions. On Wednesday August 5th, there will be two GBS specific meetings. The first one will be at 5:00pm and will take place in the ConVal High School Gymnasium.
