Welcome to Gerber School
We are hosting our annual Open House on Thursday, May 28! Come by to see all the fantastic learning that our students have done this year, talk with teachers, and make plans for summer and the 2015-2016 school year. The evening starts with an optional Tostada Dinner ($4) at 5:30, to help fund the 8th grade graduation events -- Open House continues between 6pm and 7pm. We'd love to see you! Yearbooks will also be on sale at the Open House -- $15 for this years, or previous years for $1.00.
We will host a ceremony to celebrate and honor our 8th grade Rams as they prepare to advance to High School! We're very proud of their hard work and the young women and men they are becoming! Join us at 7pm on Thursday, June 11 for the Graduation Ceremony.
We are always looking for new and better ways to stay in touch with our students, families, and community, and our wonderful counselor, Mrs. Dittner, is excited about starting to post regularly to our social media sites. Check out the wonderful things our students and staff are doing, and keep informed and in touch over the summer by visiting our facebook page or our instagram account: @Gerberschool.
Between the April 20th and May 29, Gerber students grades 3-8 will be taking the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress. This test showcases Gerber School for the state. Please make every effort to help your student be healthy, well rested, and at school during these last weeks. Thank you!
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.
