The Gordon School

Family engagement survey (and December showcases!)

Gordon’s Family Engagement Committee is a subcommittee of the Board of Trustees that has been hard at work this fall.

Before people head off for break, they would like to hear from as many parents and caregivers as possible about the ways in which families are feeling connected with or disconnected from the Gordon community. Their questions cover your relationships with faculty, staff, leadership, other families, and the programs of the school.

Your feedback will help them gain greater insights into the community at large and establish goals and priorities as they look to the winter and spring ahead. Whether you are a new family or have been at Gordon for years, your feedback will be valuable as this group plans for 2022.

This survey was created using software that a parent volunteer uses professionally. Though it will say “Wheaton College” your answers are private and will not be visible to anyone at Wheaton except for the parent volunteer.

Come to the Commons after drop off any day during the week of December 13th to connect with a member of the Family Engagement Committee and fill it out there! 

While you are there, you can take in one of these showcases:

Middle School student showcases
8:15am in the Commons, every morning December 13th-17th

Middle School students will be in the Commons each morning after drop off ready to share about a particular aspect of their Gordon experience. Whether you are a Middle School parent who wants to gain deeper insight into the academic curriculum or you are the parent of a younger student curious about what lies ahead, we want to see you!

On Monday the 13th, students talk about Shakespeare and eighth grade humanities.
 
On Tuesday the 14th, students give a robotics show and tell.
 
On Wednesday the 15th, students talk about Middle School academic support.

On Thursday the 16th, students talk about Spanish: the experience for new learners and for bilingual speakers.

On Friday the 17th, the Student Leadership Co-Presidents will share some reflections on leadership, and the G-Notes, Gordon’s a cappella group, will perform a song.

And, an Early Childhood and Lower School faculty showcase
8:30am, Friday the 17th, in the Commons

After the G-Notes perform their song, stay and connect with Early Childhood and Lower School library, music, arts, physical education, Spanish, and science teachers. These incredibly dedicated teachers will be available for a meet and greet until 9am.
