Lockdown Drills

posted Sep 8, 2014, 11:19 AM by Gubser Elementary

Practicing Lockdown Procedures

State law requires schools to conduct two lockdown drills per year. Schools will be conducting a lockdown drill within the first two weeks of the school year, and again within the first two weeks after winter break. These drills will not be a simulation of a threat and are not intended to scare students. We do want students to take the drills seriously so they are familiar with lockdown routines and procedures.  We will practice this procedure Wednesday afternoon, September 10th.

If you have safety concerns, or notice any gaps in our security, then please tell the school principal. As parents, you have a valuable perspective that can help improve safety procedures. As gaps are identified, we will continuously refine and improve our lockdown procedures.

Thank you, Keizer Station Starbucks!

On Tuesday, August 26th, representatives of the Keizer Station Starbucks came with rakes, trowels and wheelbarrows in hand to help pull weeds and make the front beds look great for the start of school. They even brought coffee for the teachers who were busily meeting to get ready for the students.  We appreciate the partnership with them!

ReadAbout Celebration

posted Jun 11, 2014, 3:20 PM by Gubser Elementary

ReadAbout is a reading program that uses adaptive technology to focus on the three key components of reading; comprehension skills, vocabulary, and content-area knowledge. Students using ReadAbout receive direct instruction and practice in the comprehension skills and strategies crucial to extracting meaning from nonfiction texts. ReadAbout also presents a rigorous yet fun approach to vocabulary instruction, in which students learn grade-appropriate academic and content area words.


Our 88 students who participated in the program this year grew and average of 161 lexile points. A growth of one hundred points is considered a full year’s growth in reading. Most of our students came in below grade level in September over half of these students are at or above grade level now. A big thank you goes to Keizer Volcanoes and Big Town Hero who stepped in at the perfect time to motivate our students to do their very best. The students’ hard work and attendance in our before and after school program is to be admired! They are proof positive that Gubser Gators really DO rock!
