Here at Gilbert Intermediate all students receive character educational lessons that focus around our District's Core Values. Values such as Integrity, Relationships, Initiative, Growth, Personalization, and Excellence are given every six weeks during their athletics class. The focus starts with the value, then moves on into the traits associated with the value, down to the characteristics or behaviors that demonstrate such values at school, home, and in the community.
Gilbert Intermediate also offers an after school social club called the F.O.R. Club. F.O.R. Club, or Friends of Rachel club is open to all students at Gilbert. Members work throughout the year to help create a bully free school through fun activities, posters campaigns and social skill development lessons. Check out the F.O.R. Club page for more information!!! Here are a few good ways to handle bullying when it occurs and some information about the Anti-Bullying pledge our students sign every year to kick-off October’s Anti-Bullying Awareness Month.
