Title I Parent Night

On Thursday evening, SGA parents attended the “A Day in the Life of an SGA Scholar” Parent Night.  Parents began their journey in the audeteria where they learned about the Title I program.  Then parents made their way to their student’s pod to experience what their scholar does during their academic day.  Students were excited to showcase their work and receive a home work pass.



Principal’s Reading Challenge

There was an exciting announcement at the Gaines Academy Parent Night. If our students reach 250,000,000 reading steps this school year, our principal will be doing a cheer leading routine to the Whip/Nae Nae. Better start practicing, Ms. Wilke because I’m sure our SGA scholars will meet the challenge.


Donuts with Dad Update

Fathers and other male role models streamed into Gaines Academy on Wednesday morning. They were treated to donuts and an inspirational message followed by smiles & laughter as they created a vision board with their child. Before leaving, the men signed the pledge to support and encourage their child’s success in school.

September COLT of the Month

The September COLT of the month was held on the afternoon of September 17th in the audeteria. The program started with a welcome message from Principal Wilke. Then, the SGA guidance staff led both parents and students in a fun activity that explained the month’s character trait. After the activity, the giving of the certificates ceremony began. Audience members were thrilled to hear why their child had been chosen by their teacher to represent their class in the power-up trait of RESPONSIBILITY!
