What Makes Us Unique
Responsive, Individualized Instruction - All teachers are part of collaborative teams, meeting weekly to assess student achievement and plan for differentiated instruction. We feature school wide intervention programming that supports students in literacy and math. This work helped earn Gideon Pond the Reward School designation from the Minnesota Department of Education for four straight years.
Community Support - The support of parents and community members is essential to our work with children. Gideon Pond is fortunate to have an active Parent Teacher Organization and amazing volunteers. They support unique learning opportunities including field trips, teacher mini-grants, the Junior Great Books program and much, much more.
Academics and Activities
Specialists - Education is about more than just math and reading. All students have art,
physical education, digital learning and music classes, too.
Band - Students in fifth grade can explore instrumental music as part of the Gideon Pond band, receiving small group lessons, full band instruction and performance opportunities.
Chess Club - The game of kings: Members compete with one another, against other District 191 elementary students, and at local tournaments throughout the year.
Enrichment Opportunities - We offer opportunities for students to pursue interests and learn beyond the classroom with programs including Spanish enrichment, Math Masters, Soccer, and Decathlon Class.
Project KIDS - Before and after school care option for school-age children.
