 Welcome to Poet



Welcome to Gladys Poet-Christian School. We are a K-8 school and offer a family environment for our students. We offer mostly single grade classrooms but also have a multiage option for grades 5-8. The Beginning Team is the home of our incoming Kindergarten students. Once students leave Kindergarten they enter our Primary teams. The Primary Team is comprised of two first grade and two second grade classes. The Intermediate Team is home to two third grade classrooms and two fourth grade classes.  The Advanced Team is home for students in grades five and six.  We have two 5th grade classrooms and three 6th grade classes. The Middle School Team is the final team at Poet. There are two seventh grade classes, two eighth grade classes, and one multiage class.  The multiage class takes an accelerated path with Math.  These students study an Advanced math class in the first year and Algebra I as 8th graders.   Our eighth graders move on from Poet to attend one of the three comprehensive high schools in the District.
Because we are officially a Magnet School, parents have a choice to enroll their children at Poet.  We are very excited about the opportunity to offer Art and Dance classes at our school.  All of our students in 1st-8th grade will have Art or Dance every day during the school year. We work hard to create an environment in which we are strongly united around a common set of values and beliefs. The two main values of the school are Respect and Responsibility. These values are encouraged and supported through a Character Education program emphasizing the six pillars of character: Trustworthiness, Caring, Respect, Citizenship, Fairness, and Responsibility. We help each of our students to demonstrate Respect and Responsibility in themselves and in the school as well as the other Pillars of Character. 
A school is as strong as its membership. The staff is dedicated to providing the best educational opportunities for your child. They spend time planning and working together to ensure that students gain from the insights and expertise of all of the staff at that age level. As the principal of the school, I promise that I will provide a safe and secure campus for your child and I will focus our collective energies on providing instructional strategies and meaningful curriculum that meet the needs of our students.
The staff and I expect our students to come to school ready to learn and aware of their responsibility as learners. Children will be challenged as long as they are willing to accept the opportunities given to them at Poet. We believe in an open-ended curriculum that allows for maximum challenge for all students at all times.
Our school has enjoyed a great deal of success because of a commitment from the Poet Staff, Parents and Students. The parents at Poet have been a big part of the school’s success and we look forward to continuing a strong partnership with parents in the coming school year. It is imperative to Poet’s success that we have the support and commitment from parents and we are asking our parents to make a commitment to the school by volunteering time at the school. We realize that many parents work, therefore we arrange for ways for parents who work to do things to help the school at home. We believe that involved and active parents are better informed and therefore more supportive of the school efforts. We look forward to working with you for the best education for your child.
