Welcome to Carrie Gosch Elementary School! I am pleased and extremely excited to have
the pleasure of working with the students, staff and community members
dedicated to our school. My name is
Kimberley Bradley and I am the new principal of Gosch elementary. I have eighteen years of experience in
education. I began my tenure as a 1st
grade teacher here at Carrie Gosch and then spent the next thirteen years here honing
my skills and learning from some of the best instructional leaders in East
Chicago before becoming an administrator.
I am now back at Carrie Gosch as the principal and it feels like
home. I believe whole-heartedly in our
school’s mission: “Learning for All,
Whatever it Takes”. If I can be of
assistance, please feel free to inquire.
My goal is that all of our students reach their maximum potential.
Our teachers and staff are committed to the success of the
students who are entrusted to us and we have planned many wonderful learning
experiences to enhance their knowledge of state and national academic
content. Our character education program
is called PBIS (positive behavioral interventions with supports). PBIS is a system we
use to help our students model positive behavior and academic commitment at
school and at home. Through this system we have common expectations for
student and adult behavior in an effort to increase learning in every
We will utilize the 8 Step Process for school
improvement. You will notice that
students are excited to come to school in the morning in order to be a part of
our school-wide Success Period that will take place from 8:45 – 9:15
daily. We will have two success periods
throughout the day. The first one will
focus on math skills. During this time,
all of the students K – 5 will work on a set of standards for math. Teachers have planned games and fun
activities to engage students and enhance their skills. We are very excited about our Success
period. Please make sure that your child
is here at school on time every day.
Again, I am excited to have the opportunity to work with you
this school year. Best wishes to all of
you for a very productive school year.
Welcome From Mrs. Glenn
Dear Carrie Gosch Family,
I would like to welcome you to the 2014-2015 school year. I am the newly appointed assistant principal at Carrie Gosch. I am so excited to be with you this year and I am looking forward to working with the Carrie Gosch families to begin work on our new SCEC mission, of Learning for All….Whatever it Takes! I am also looking forward to rejoining the Carrie Gosch community.
Prior to my arrival at Carrie Gosch this year, I worked at several other East Chicago schools as assistant principal. I also taught at Carrie Gosch for over a decade before becoming an assistant principal. I have a total of 21 years of experience in education. I have served 20 of those 21 years in East Chicago. I am a native of East Chicago, and I attended school here in the city as a child. I am also a graduate of Purdue University and Indiana University. I am proud that I have been given the opportunity to serve our East Chicago families and I enjoy my experiences here.
This year I am excited to see our student’s progress while using the 8-Step Process and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports to support our academics. We look forward to working with the students, parents and staff to see our children grow academically and socially. Please feel free to come by and say hello, I would love to meet you and personally welcome you to Carrie Gosch. I wish your family and especially your student great success this school year.
Mrs. E. Glenn
The Carrie Gosch
The Carrie Gosch Family is eager to roll out our Positive Behavioral Interventions with Supports system (PBIS). The purpose of our system is to support academics for our children by teaching them routines and expectations. We will present lessons during our first weeks to teach our routines and procedures or, how we do things at Carrie Gosch.
We have 4 overall expectations for behavior:
We will explain what these expectations look like at Carrie Gosch. This year we will also have more of an academic focus to our system. The students will set behavioral goals and learning targets for themselves. Our mission this year is Learning for All…..Whatever It Takes, and the Carrie Gosch Code will help us achieve our mission.
Learning for All….Whatever It Takes!
