Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Great Bend District Curriculum

During the elementary years, the basic focus is on literacy, communication, math, science and social studies so that students develop the learning habits associated with each subject. The literacy program has increased its scope so as to include a good amount of non-fiction so that students develop strong literacy skills in each subject.

Extensive support services are also available for students through the Barton County Special Services Center, and the Panther Enrichment Program provides resources for students after school to complete assignments, conduct study groups, meet with teachers for extra assistance, and make up missed work. Students, parents, and teachers may also utilize the services of the PTRC, the Parent Teacher Resource Center, for resources and supplies for projects. Advanced Placement courses are offered for high school students, and programs of study in fine arts, career and technical education, communications, and foreign language are also available.

Chalk Talk: Technology and Learning

Our children live in an ever-changing world with technology at the center. From Smart phones to tablets, they are connected and engaged, so it is important that we jump on the technology wave in in the classroom and at home to keep our children ‘in the know’. At home, you may create webquests that allow children to research a topic by reading articles, playing games, or viewing videos on the topic. You can use technology to play or design game for skill-building, or allow children to create their own presentations using different media. Encourage students to create projects using the technology that is available, from designing their own websites or blogs to producing their own videos and movies. By embracing new technology, we improve the success of our students because we tap in to the world they know and use.
