Back in December 2022, the Gower Foundation sent out a Parent Engagement Survey asking for parents to help us determine what topics are important to the Gower community.  The Gladiator Soundboard launched Spring of 2023 and continues into its second season this fall!  Below is the first episode of Season 2.  All of Season 1 episodes can be found below! 

 

 

SEASON 2 EPISODE 1- "WHAT DOES CHILDREN AT THEIR BEST LOOK LIKE IN GOWER SCHOOLS?"

Gladiator Soundboard is back for season 2! We're excited to kick-off the season talking with our school administration--Mrs. Rodewald, Mrs. Capizzi, Mrs. Murphy and Mr. Prorok--as they share insights into how they manifest our school mission, "Children at Their Best", everyday. We also discuss changing education strategies and philosophies and important advice to parents who might be feeling the pressures of raising today's students.
