Become Involved with Rebel U

This year we are offering an unique opportunity to Godfrey-Lee teachers participating in Rebel U - a photo contest!

Bring your camera or cell phone the day of Rebel U and start snapping away!  There are two categories you can submit photos to, but feel free to share any pictures you take throughout the day with us as they could be used for our Rebel U 2011 slideshow.

  1. Theme: A picture that represents Rebel U

  2. Godfrey-Lee: A picture that symbolizes Godfrey-Lee Public Schools

The winner of each category will receive a web cam.

Take pictures throughout the day and then choose 1 that fits a category theme.  One entry per person per category is accepted.  All pictures must be e-mailed to Sarah Wood by 8:00am on Wednesday, August 31, 2011.

All entries will be judged by the Technology & Media Team and winners will be determined based on relevance to the category themes.  All submitted images must be original images belonging to the person submitting them. Winners will be announced by the end of the day on Wednesday, August 31, 2011.  All submissions must include:
  1. Picture Title

  2. A brief description

Even if you choose to not participate in this contest, we encourage you to take pictures of your experience throughout the day.  Feel free to send any pictures to Sarah Wood as they could be included in our Rebel U 2011 slideshow!

Also, don't forget our netbook give-away!  There is still time to submit a lesson plan - click here for more information!

SB-CEU Application Submitted

posted May 4, 2010, 6:53 AM by Sarah Wood

As part of our Rebel U day, we would like to offer teachers the opportunity to apply for SB-CEU's.  We have submitted our paperwork to the ISD (as our sponsor), who has in turn submitted the paperwork to the Michigan Department of Education for approval.  The paperwork we submitted would allow teacher to receive 0.5 SB-CEUs for the entire day for a cost of $5.00.  We are hoping to hear back within the week or so if we are approved to offer this credit to teachers.

RebelU 2010 Planning Underway!

posted Apr 30, 2010, 9:08 AM by Sarah Wood   [ updated Apr 30, 2010, 9:43 AM ]

The Technology and Media Department is in the process of planning RebelU, a new professional development day that is part of the professional development that all teachers must attend at the beginning of this school year.  As our district continues to move forward with establishing a web-based environment, we want to provide all teachers with the opportunity to learn about these tools to encourage anytime, anywhere access.

As the planning for this day develops, all information will be found on this site.  This site will also serve as a resource for teachers before, during and after the professional development day.  If you have any questions about this day, please contact Sarah Wood (
