Welcome to the 2013-2014 School Year!

District Update

It’s been a very busy summer for our district filled with many great activities. The summer kicked off with 14 staff members participating in a Google Apps for Educators training facilitated by teachers, Michelle Albanese and Marie Kittle in the Deer Creek Technology Lab. Four teachers also attended the Google Apps for Educators in San Jose.

Our district housed the Emotionally Disturbed (E.D.) County Summer School Program at Seven Hills. The E.D. Program was followed by the Grass Valley Police G.R.E.A.T. Program at Seven Hills with maximum student participation. This was followed by a three-week, First 5, pre-kindergarten program at Deer Creek.

Coach Looney and Coach Ellis worked with the Lady Raiders, three days a week over the summer – go Raiders! The Seven Hills reroofing project began on July 25, 2013—the delay was due to red tape with the Department of the State Architect. Ninety-five percent of the work will be done by local Nevada County businesses.

Ms. Albanese oversaw the huge technology infrastructure update bringing us up to the 21st century. We are wireless throughout the district and upgrading our internal bandwidth – our Internet will be fast!

2013-2014 School Year

In beginning this new school year, we can be reminded of our district’s mission: In partnership with parents and the community to provide all students access to high quality curriculum, rich in relevance and rigor that inspires students to use critical thinking and problem solving; that includes greater use of informational literacy; supports students in making positive contributions to society, and prepares them for their college and career choices.

It is important that you have all of the information you need for a strong beginning of the school year. The information in the first day packet is to help you make informed choices about your child’s academic pathway. We are here in pursuit and in support of student success while students attend the Nevada City schools. Teachers, administrators, and staff members are prepared for the arrival of new and returning students.

I am grateful to share that the district has maintained excellent academic and enrichment programs. Please read the first day packet carefully as your signature is required (on multiple forms) in order for your child to participate in various school programs and for the administration of first aid if your child should be hurt at school.

In education,

Roxanne Gilpatric, Superintendent
