Dear Brasser Families,
We have nearly reached the mid-way point of the school year and it’s amazing how fast this year is flying by! There are so many wonderful things going on in your child’s classroom and we hope you have a chance to hear about them each day. As always, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher or us in the office if you have any questions or concerns.
By now, you have obviously noticed the pace, workload, and expectations continue to increase in all classrooms and at every level. We continue to expect growth when we assess students on their reading and math. The most noticeable improvements are made by those who are working hard not only at school on live days, but those who are showing effort at home by doing their homework and reading every day.
Brasser Elementary would like to invite you to join us on our “Journey Along the Path of Equity.” Staff will be participating in a 10-week challenge to promote and understand social justice. We will provide parents an article each month to help your journey also. Keep your eyes open for an article in our monthly newsletter.
We look forward to finishing this year strongly by working with you and your most treasured resource... your child.
As educators, we must ensure that our students understand that what happened in our U.S. Capitol today is abhorrent. We have spoken to children from a very young age about violence and how it’s never the answer. Today’s actions were egregious and contrary not only to the conscience of our nation, but also the Spartan Way values we hold dear at Gates Chili.
Benham, a longtime physical education teacher at Gates Chili High School, has served as head football coach for 20 seasons, compiling a record of 80-76. He led the Spartans to Section 5 titles in 2003, 2006 and 2008.
New requirements do not mandate an automatic closure; however, testing would still be required
COVID-19 positive data reported on this site includes students and staff in the district. These cases have been validated by Monroe County Health Department.
In the event of a move to the orange or red zones, the district must test 100% of in-person learners to be able to reopen to in-person instruction. Without this consent, we cannot test and therefore, would be required to remain fully remote if in the orange or red zones. We ask families to complete a consent form for each in-person learner in their household.
With face masks and costume masks galore, the annual event moved outdoors to the GCHS parking lot on Oct. 29. Dozens of seniors arrived as early as 6:15 a.m. to show off epic costumes for a costume contest, eat breakfast served on the Spartan Eats bus, stay warm by fire pits and make memories as a class. It was the first time this year they've been able to gather as a class.
