"Preparing for the 2024-25 School Year" - The GIPS Cast, Ep. 038


How do we prepare for a new school year?

Two of our school Principals, Jessica Schroeder from Howard Elementary and Kayla Wichman from Westridge Middle School, joined the podcast to answer that very question.

Throughout the conversation, they share a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the large number of details, tasks, and plans that a school Principal tackles before kicking-off another year of learning. 

Whether it is lunch period times, class schedules for students, school culture initiatives, improvement plans, or updating posters for common areas – no job is too small for our building leaders.

Because every student and family deserves to feel like they belong at school.
