March 1, 2023 Dear Friends and Families of Globe Unified School District, Can you believe it’s already the 1st of March? It seems like this year has flown by. We are entering our third trimester of school here at Globe Unified School District. Before we know it we will be approaching the end of the school year and I didn’t want that to catch us all off guard. With the approach of spring, I just wanted to take a couple of minutes to update you about what is coming up in the next few weeks and months. Parent-Teacher Conferences-Parent-Teacher conferences will be held next week March 8th and 9th, 2023. Please be proactive and be in touch with your child’s teacher. This will help ensure a successful completion to the school-year. Spring Break- GUSD will be observing Spring Break from March 13-16, 2023. There will be no school for the week. State Testing – Beginning on March 29th and ending on April 20th for grades 3 and above GUSD will be administering Arizona state testing. I encourage all of you to support your students and help them be in a frame of mind to do their best in this task. Please feel free to contact your building principal if you have questions about state testing and how it impacts your student. Graduation and Year-End Activities- Globe High School graduation will be held on Thursday, May 25th, 2023 at 7:30 PM at Harbison Field. Please keep in mind that there will be many other year-end activities in each of our schools. There will be assemblies, programs, and events. Please be on the lookout for these activities. There is much to do in the remaining third of the school-year and I wanted each and every one of you to be aware of how quickly the time is marching on. Thank you for continuing to support our students and staff as we seek to live up to our vision of “Capturing Hearts, Empowering Minds”. Best wishes over the next weeks and months, Jerry Jennex, Superintendent
School Board Meeting for 02/01/2023 will begin at 5:30 PM.
January 19, 2023 Dear GUSD Family (Staff, Students, Parents, Guardians, and Community), I wanted to take a minute to update you about the work being done on next year’s calendar. At our GUSD governing board meeting last evening results of the recent calendar survey were shared with the board. The survey was posted on the GUSD website for about 10 days over the past couple of weeks. Two calendar options were presented. One continued with same pattern the district has operated with over the past several years with school starting in late July or early August and finishing by Memorial Day. The second option provide a full week off for Thanksgiving rather than two days, but required students and staff to return for 3 days after Memorial Day. There was a total of 975 responses to the survey. 606 responses were from parents and guardians, 213 responses were from students, and 156 responses came from staff. Overall the results were tipped slightly in favor of option 2 with 52.5% favoring that choice. Staff preferred option 2 with 53.2% choosing that calendar. Parents and guardians favored the option 1 calendar (similar to our current calendar) with a 52.3% preference. Student preferred option 2 by an almost 2 to 1 ratio with 65.7% preferring that option. The governing board will make a decision about the 23-24 calendar at the next regularly scheduled board meeting on Wednesday, February 1, 2023 at 6:00 PM in the Mofford Center (old junior high) Board Room. The survey results were indicative of no real clear opinion about how important a full week off at Thanksgiving is to our stakeholders. Parents and guardians slightly preferred to mirror the calendar of the last several years. Staff slightly preferred to have a full week off at Thanksgiving and return to school after Memorial Day. Students clearly wanted a full week off at Thanksgiving. Overall option 2 was slightly preferred, but not by a wide margin. Taking all of the information into consideration, I will be recommending that the board approve a calendar for 23-24 which reflects the same pattern as we have been operating on for the past several years. I want to thank everyone who took time to participate in the survey. The closeness of the results illustrate how difficult it is to make everyone pleased with a calendar. I trust that we can all work together to do our best with the calendar the board approves. Thank you all, for all you do to support GUSD as we try to live out our vision, “Capturing Hearts, Empowering Minds”. Best wishes to all, Jerry Jennex, Superintendent
