Local teacher studies with distinguished scholars

Earlier this month, a Gause teacher traveled to Austin to participate in a one-day workshop focused on teaching critical events from early U.S. history.

Debra Salcido, who teaches social studies at Gause Elementary and Junior High School, attended the workshop, which offered teachers the opportunity to work closely with leading scholars, studying events that shaped America between 1776 and 1836 while also reflecting on their lasting significance. Topics included James Madison, the Constitution, the Second Great Awakening and Jacksonian Democracy.

During the morning, participants attended dynamic lectures and presentations. In the afternoon, they joined faculty in small workshops to examine primary sources and develop effective strategies for classroom instruction.

FISD pride pals program seeking volunteers to mentor students

There are children in every school district who need a little extra attention to reach their full potential.
In Franklin there are programs and staff in place throughout the school district to assist children with their special needs. However, district officials understand that some students benefit even more from the extra encouragement and guidance of someone outside of the school setting.
That is where Pride Pals step in.
Pride Pals are volunteers from all walks of life who devote just half an hour each week to mentor a child on the elementary or middle school campus. The “pals” are carefully paired and meet at school weekly to work together on engaging activities developed by the child’s teacher. The time commitment adds up to less than 20 hours a school year. Program officials work closely with volunteers to schedule a time during school hours that best fits their schedule.

Pre-K round up

Calvert ISD is holding an event to get children enrolled into pre-k. The event will take place at Calvert High School from July 23 through July 25, between the times of 9-11a.m and 1:30-3p.m.
Information that you need to bring to enroll your child is a birth certificate, a social security card, current immunization records, and proof of residence.
Putting your child in preschool is important because it provides a foundation for learning both socially and academically to help your child succeed in elementary school. A highly structured environment helps young children learn to make friends and play well with others. This doesn’t mean there are lots of rules or that adults constantly direct children’s activities. On the contrary, the structure of a high-quality preschool classroom is largely invisible to children. Classroom space is organized to encourage social interaction, and minimize congestion and conflicts
