Preparing Students for College and Career

Gibbon Public Schools is constantly focused on successfully preparing our students for life after high school.Accomplishing this meaningful task requires school districts to continuously examine current practices and determine if those practices reflect what is occurring in the real-world.We are looking at increasing academic and behavioral expectations, redesigning courses required for graduation, and connecting our curriculum to real-world experiences to determine if these experiences truly prepare students for life after high school. These goals will prove to be rewarding work that contributes to the quality of life for our students and for our community.

Gibbon Nation - Featuring Gibbon Varsity Cheerleaders

Hey Gibbon Nation.  Did you know our cheerleaders host a cheer camp for our youth?  The Gibbon Cheerleader Team held a cheerleader camp in September and we wish to celebrate this event.
During the week of September 5th through the 9th, the cheerleaders hosted a “Little Buffs Cheer Camp” for ages preschool through 6th grade.  WE had a wonderful turnout with thirty-seven students participating in this event.  Our youngsters practice cheers with the varsity cheerleaders for three days.  The culminating activities included the opportunities to cheer along with the Gibbon cheerleaders for the first half of the varsity football game versus North Platte St. Pats, ending the camp with a performance of a couple of new cheers at halftime.  Sponsors for the camp were Code 3 BBQ, Lambert’s Family Pharmacy, Show Stopper Kites, Lonnie Jurgens Company, Mark Jurgens Construction Inc., and Jacobsen Orr.  The cheerleader family wishes to thank these sponsors for their donations and support of the Gibbon…

Supts On - Dr. Vernon Fisher

My name is Vernon Fisher and I am the very proud superintendent of Gibbon Public Schools.  In partnership with the “Clipper,” Gibbon Public Schools would like to establish a monthly column for the primary purpose of sharing information with our constituents.  Supts On is intended to serve as a direct source of information from the superintendent of schools to our wonderful community with the ultimate goal of generating a two-way dialogue between you and your school district.  One strategy that will help us achieve this goal is through the use of a blog.
