Welcome to Gerber School
Building good fitness habits while young is one of the best ways to have a full, healthy life. Beyond our regular Physical Education, we are challenging all of our students and staff to run a mile every day this month -- That's 5 laps around our track! So far we're doing great, and are looking forward to a fit, healthy springtime. Talk with your students about the importance of fitness, and try to make time on the weekends to get in a mile every day!
Over the past months, we have been gathering input from all of the stakeholders in Gerber Elementary School, and we are proud and excited to announce that the school has decided on our new Mission Statement and our new Vision Statement to help guide us into the future.

We will continue to implement the Common Core State Standards this year and prepare our students for the new on-line accountability system; the California Assessment of Student Progress and Performance (CAASPP). The common core standards are not a new curriculum but a different way of teaching and learning. You may hear your child talking about working collaboratively with his/her peers and doing more talking and project work in class. This is to build children’s communication, creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking skills; which are the heart of the new common core standards. These skills are going to be key for job seekers in the future.
