GEMS stands for Great Educational Moments for Monroe County Students. It is an effort to shine a light on the great things happening in the District Schools. This is an initiative from the Curriculum Department led by Mrs. Theresa Axford, Executive Director for Teaching & Learning, which recognizes the GEMS in Monroe County.
In order to create a GEM, it takes the leadership of a great principal, the expertise of wonderful teachers and the commitment of outstanding students.
We will be looking for and recognizing GEMS throughout the school year – you will not be able to miss them as they sparkle and shine throughout our district schools each day! !
