The Houses of Gulf 2019-2020

We are so excited to announce that our school will be launching a new initiative that will help enhance the already amazing climate and culture of our school.
We will be implementing the "House System" in which every student and staff member will take part in to create a strong community of learners. Through this initiative, each student will be sorted into a house. These houses will have students of all grade levels in them as well as a variety of staff members. Students and staff will work together throughout the year to build strong bonds and relationships that will allow them to feel more connected to our school. Our goal is for students to feel as if they truly know the staff and students in our school and that we are united as one.
Each house represents a specific character trait and we will work together to represent their trait with pride. Houses will meet throughout the year to participate in team bonding activities, work on character trait development and complete special projects together. 
Students will also be earning points for their houses. Points are a way we are reinforcing the positive behavior that our amazing students show. There will even be friendly house competition between all the Houses to see who will be our "House Champion" for the school year.
We encourage you to participate in this experience as well. Ask your children about their House, show pride in their House by wearing House colors. We look forward to working together with you to grow our community.
