January 2018

North Gem Patrons,

Happy 2018! I hope that all of our North Gem families had an enjoyable Winter Break! I want to express appreciation to all of the students, staff, and community members that participated in our holiday activities. We are grateful for those that attended our Christmas concerts. We want to thank all of the community members that participated in our Angel Tree activity, which provided Christmas gifts for children in our community. We also want to thank of the elementary students, who wrote kind letters to their classmates; the middle school students, who sang Christmas carols to the residents of Edgewood Senior Living Center and the Living Center at Caribou Memorial Hospital; and the high school students, who helped clean the Bancroft City Shop and Fire Station. We also appreciate the staff that organized and supervised these Cowboys in Action service projects.

January will be another month of great teaching and learning at North Gem! The end of the first semester of the school year will be Thursday, January 11th. Report cards for the first semester will be sent home with students on Tuesday, January 16th. For parents who would like to visit in person with teachers about their students’ progress, Parent-Teacher Conferences will be on Thursday, January 18th from 4:00 to 7:00 pm. There will also be many high school basketball games and wrestling meets in January. The middle school boys will also start their basketball season this month. These are exciting opportunities to come out and support our student athletes.

With the continuing winter weather, please be sure that you are set up in school notification system so that you will be notified of any school closures or delays. Information about how to get registered into the notification system is in our monthly newsletter.
