Welcome to the Grand Isle School Home Page!
Grand Isle School is a welcoming community where every family and staff member is invested in our students. We recognize and celebrate the whole child. We provide an equal opportunity and the right supports so all students and adults are successful. We practice positive and collaborative teaming and teaching throughout the school.
G.R.A.C.E • Wednesday, December 17th
GRACE would like to share some of the upcoming programs for the next session
that will be starting when we return from the holiday break on January 5th. In
after school we are always trying to find new and exciting ways for our students to
engage in learning that is also enjoyable to students. My goal in GRACE is for
students to always be safe, nurtured and engaged in learning. Our goal is to also
help every child to feel cared for, comfortable with who they are and that their
opinions matter. In an effort for GRACE to share the opinions of our students we
have added a section in the Wildcat Wisdom called Voices of GRACE. Every week
students write in their journal about different subjects and/or their feelings about
certain things. One student entry is then chosen to be highlighted in the column.
Please take a moment to read our students’ thoughts. They are amazing young
people with a voice. GRACE is always looking for input from students, parents, staff
and anyone who would like to share. We are also looking for GISU teachers and
staff, program assistants, parents, and anyone who would love to make a difference
in a child’s life. If you are interested in playing a role in after school we will attempt to
work with you in accommodating your schedule. Please be safe, be well, and have a
great holiday with family and friends. See you next year!
Cooking Club: Dinner
In Cooking Club this session, students will make different popular dinner recipes of
their choosing. All students will find a dinner recipe we can make and each week a
new one will be chosen. Students then guess the day's recipe that's been chosen
based on the laid out ingredients, take turns doing jobs to get dinner prepared, eat
as a group and clean up as a group. One week students will even create a recipe on
their own (in groups) based on the ingredients laid out as a fun competition to see
who can create the most unique and tasty dinner!
In Computers, students will learn how to use PowerPoint, Microsoft Word, and
different search engines. Each week students will look up online games that are
related to social studies, science, math or language arts (one of these subjects each
week.) Students will then master the game they've found and each week different
students will be picked to teach their game to everyone else in the class using the
smart board. Then everyone will have the chance to try the game on their own. The
last two weeks we will pick a topic rated to the core subjects, use the search engines
to research the topic and present the learning in PowerPoint.
Kids Cardio: Dancing
In Kids Cardio: Dancing, students will begin each day by warming up and stretching
to music. We will then learn different dance moves to do across the floor one at a
time or with a partner. Students will pick different Just Dance songs to master as a
group and begin work on their own within a group, in partners or individual dance.
The last day will be doing a performance, showing each other and all GRACE
students our dances!
