Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Gering District Curriculum
In Mathematics, the learning strands of this school district contain the development of communicating concepts in algebra, such as representing, generalizing, and analyzing relationships; applying rules about geometric and numeric patterns, and creating and synthesizing these patterns with the use of tables, graphs, and text. Students are expected to learn how these apply to real world situations and be able to solve problems using the best methods.
In the Reading curriculum, the K-12 goals include vocabulary acquisition, such as academic terms, literary terms, and vocabulary that is content specific. Determining meaning using word patterns, word origins, parts of speech, suffixes, affixes, and abbreviations is also required to meet the benchmarks of this reading objective. Relating the vocabulary that has been previously learned across all disciplines demonstrates that the students truly understand the meaning of the terms.

Keeping Informed: Recent Gering Educational News
- Pup Packs - In Gering Public Schools, they have a program that will help students that need meals on the weekends. Pup Packs gives a backpack of nourishing meals and snacks to students who receive free lunch during the school week. Since the program was developed in 2010, over 7000 backpacks have been given out to needy children. This is a wonderful way to make sure no child is hungry when outside of school, and truly helps families who are in need! Thanks to the efforts of the Scottsbluff and Gering Public Schools, as well as the Ministry Council, the students are kept healthy and happy!
- TeamMates - If anyone has just one hour a week, they can be a mentor to a student who needs someone to look up to outside of school. The mentor does come into the class to work with the student, but this program has been a positive aspect of a variety of students’ school days!

Chalk Talk: The Benefits of a Mentor in the Schools
Unlike a counselor, a mentor is more like a “friend” to a student who simply needs a boost. Mentors can come into the classroom or take the student out of class for a bit (but stay within the school) and spend time with their student by playing a game, doing a hobby together, talk, or have fun on the computer. A consistent mentor can raise a student’s self-esteem and really make them feel important. The teachers collaborate with the parents before recommending a particular child, and then the child is matched with a volunteer. What a great way for kids to feel restored, and perhaps even perform better in the classroom!
