What's New!

We miss you 2 AG banner 1 AG banner 2 Any WPS family who is need of a Chromebook to access learning can request one completing the Electronic Device Survey link WPS School Closure Plan by April 1.   Please read the document carefully to understand your responsibility as a parent and your student's responsibility.  Chromebooks will be distributed at a later date once all information is collected.   

At Abner Gibbs we all soar to success. We have expected behaviors throughout the entire school building and we use the acronym S.O.A.R. to reinforce those behaviors.  

While you are spending time with your children at home you can continue helping them SOAR to success. Click on this link for examples: PBIS home expectations for COVID 19.

Hello Abner Gibbs Families:  

Mrs. Poremby and Mrs. Crowley understand the feelings that the uncertainty of what we are going through are causing. We are all feeling a lot of stress and frustration. Below are some coping skills that may help you and your children. If you have any concerns or questions please email us at:d.poremby@schoolsofwestfield.org and a.crowley@schoolsofwestfield.org. If you are on Twitter please check out @caselorg for Social Emotional Learning (SEL) ideas and support.



Dear Abner Gibbs Families-
Teachers have been working hard at getting their Google Classrooms up and running. Please take a moment to email your child’s teacher your most recent email address. This will allow teachers to send you the class code for their Google Classrooms and your child will be able to join. Once they are in Google Classroom, teachers will be able to post enrichment activities, videos, and communicate with families. This would be the most centralized location to find enrichment activities and to communicate with teachers. We hope you and your family are staying healthy through this challenging time.
