Ashley Rocha has been busy with a new project...learning how to create audio books. She's been learning how to record herself reading the books and edit the audio files. She's also learning how to create a music soundtrack to go with the book. She's busy adding sound effects to go along with the books as well. She has done a really great job so far and plans to record more books throughout the rest of the year.
Her third series of audio books are from author Lynley Dodd. These were recommend by one of our Guthrie teachers. Ashley hopes that these recordings will be enjoyed by many of our students who are learning to read.
If you have any questions or would like her to record a book for you and your children just find her throughout the day and let her know, she will be happy to. Thank you and we hope you enjoy listening to them.

Guthrie students, teachers, and staff engaged in embedded professional development on the morning of March 8, 2013. The learning for the day continued to focus on the Guthrie Graduate Profile (GGP). More specifically, the focus of the morning's work was on the dimension of the GGP titled, "Persons of Strong Character." Ms. Sammie Jones and her students led the learning on the topic of Healthy Habits and Lifestyles. Ms. Marianna Graves and the 8th grade students directed the learning on the topic of Persevering Toward Achieving Personal Goals. Ms. Tammy Hatfield and the 3rd grade students facilitated the learning on the topic of Honesty and Trustworthiness. Dr. Coulter fostered the learning on the topic of Assertiveness and Competitiveness.

January is school board appreciation month in Texas. The Guthrie Common School District (GCSD) is blessed to have seven dedicated and selfless individuals serving as trustees on the local school board. The GCSD Board members for 2012-13 are: Jay Hurt (President), Travis Adams (Vice-president), Terry Daniel (Secretary), Brenda Jones, Justin Johnson, Terri O'Neal, and Toby Oliver. These fine public servants invest their time, their energy, their thinking, and their leadership (and a fair amount of sleeplessness) in the interest of making GCSD an exemplar among school districts and one that ensures a World Class education for ALL its students. GCSD is proud to acknowledge the work and service of these fine folks.

The Guthrie CSD faculty and student body engaged in team learning on Tuesday, December 11, 2012, as has been our practice for the last four years. Faculty gathered in groups to have dialogue on how they have attempted to address the Guthrie Graduate Profile (GGP) dimensions in their classrooms over the last four months. As well, discussions were had by the educators about how we might create learning tasks that address the academic curricula while at the same time aligning with the GGP.
While faculty were learning and thinking together, students were assembled by age groups to engage in learning activities centered on one specific dimension of the GGP: Effective Communications. The students were guided in those activities by communications consultant Stephanie Stanley-Allen of Lubbock, Texas, who did a marvelous job of providing students with sound and practical strategies for effectively communicating.
The GGP consists of five dimensions, which the Guthrie community has deemed powerful components for living, learning, and earning in a 21st century global environment. Those five dimensions are:
The professional educators of Guthrie have made a serious commitment to creating the best possible futures for our students, by focusing our efforts and resources in an intentional way on the whole child, not just the academic curricula. In the process, we recognize that the individual growth of the faculty/staff along those GPP dimensions is an important and critical piece in accomplishing that goal.
On Friday, December 21st, there will not be a JV boys game. The Varsity girls will start at 5:30.
