Welcome to Gerber School
Fall is here! The Gerber School Halloween Carnival is THIS FRIDAY, between 5pm and 8pm, at the school. Join us for fun, games, and treats! We would love to see you there! The carnival is a great time to show off your costume -- we are asking students NOT to wear costumes during the school day, either this friday or on Halloween. Thanks!

Our computer lab is open! Technology was an identified priority through input for our Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) and with local dollars we are able to begin a 3-year phase in of technology at Gerber School. Technology plays a key role in preparing our students for their future, the common core standards and new accountability system (CAASPP), and 21st Century Learning. We have hired a full time technology teacher, created a new computer and technology lab, and are updating our Technology Plan.
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.
