Dear Florence Brasser Families;
“Together we teach and inspire excellence for all learners.” -District Mission
“Learning together, Leading together, Achieving together” -Building Vision
Brasser Elementary welcomes the family –school partnership:
Brasser Elementary is implementing a school-wide positive behavior system that seeks to teach expected behaviors in school and then reinforcees those expectations by earning tickets.
When school started, students learned and practiced expected behaviors in the cafeteria, playground and hallways. When they are “caught” showing the Brasser Way in those areas, they can earn a red ticket. As an entire school, we set a goal of earning 2,000 tickets. Once this number has been reached, we reward ourselves with fun experiences and activities. Students are learning that positive things happen when we make good choices. To date, our students have already earned a glow stick dance party and pajama/yoga day. We are so proud of them!
Moving forward, this is a framework that takes multiple years to become part of the building culture. We will continue to add more focus areas around the school and develop more ways to recognize students for following the Brasser Way: Respect, Responsibility, Compassion and Hard Work.
Elementary students created activity books for children in UR Medicine’s Golisano Children’s Hospital, making 300 of them to donate to patients ahead of the holiday season.
The GCHS Service Club brought in more than $4,500 for Gates Chili families through its annual homeroom drive. Each year the Service Club uses the funds from this drive to adopt families from around the district and provide them with food and gifts for the holidays.
In the next couple of months, all GCCSD elementary schools will have a salad bar. Armstrong fifth-graders Gianna and Caiden helped Superintendent Dailey learn how to use the new salad bar the Spartan Way.
The Gates Chili Athletic Department is proud to announce the 2019 Fall All-County Award Recipients in their respective sport.
Just as GCCSD prides itself on being a united community, so do the towns surrounding our campus. In a collaboration with local organizations, Spartan Circle provides the meeting point between the two.
