Dear Gilbert Junior High Parent,
Grade and assignment information, attendance information and communications from teachers and the school will be available on the Infinite Campus Portal. In the introductory phase, access to the information on the Portal for both students and parents will be accessed from the Student Portal using the student's ID.
Once there, use the Student ID Number as the username.
The password is (first inital)(last name intial)(birthdate in MMDDYY format)
An example for Abraham Lincoln would be - al021209
Inside the portal, students and parents will be presented with several choices on the left side of the screen. Clicking on each tab changes the contents of the screen. The information is accurate and reflects any changes recently made.
One area that is particularly important is the - Contact Preferences tab. Students can use this tab to input their personal email address. This will allow teachers to communicate with students via email.
At this time, because we are only using the student portal to access student information, there is no option for parents to enter their email address themselves. You can check to see if your email address is already in our system by logging on to the Student Portal. Once there, click on Family Members and then click on your name. If the email field is blank, we do not have your email address in our system. Please contact our office 480-892-6908 and we will add your email to the system.
At some point during the semester, parents will be provided a special access code in order to register in the system. You will then be able to update your own email addresses, etc. However, during the initial introductory period, you will only have access to the student portal information.
Advisory Period/Late Work/Academic Support
Tiger Den (Advisory Period)
Students are placed with an Advisory Period teacher into a Tiger Den. Tiger Den will be the students’ home base for the Advisory Period. Students will be in the Den for month of August. During this time, students will learn norms and consequences, grade monitoring, PAWS to organize and other campus guidelines. Once Tiger Academies begin in September, students will be in their dens every Monday and Friday and for full weeks in between academies. In between academies, student will be placed in necessary intervention classes. Students not placed in an intervention/grade recovery class will have the opportunity to preview the enrichment catalog and sign up for classes.
Tiger Academies are three week mini intervention/grade recovery and enrichment courses. Students who are struggling in an academic area due to low grades or skill level will be placed into a Tiger Academy. Students who are not placed into a specific course will have the opportunity to sign up for an enrichment class. Sign- ups are typically done by student GPA.
Monday – Tiger Den
Tuesday – Tiger Academy
Wednesday – No Den or Academy
Thursday – Tiger Academy
Friday – Tiger Den
*In between Academies, students will be in Tiger Den for a full week.

Academic Support is an after school tutoring program where students can meet with individual teachers and receive extra help and guidance for a specific class. Academic Support will take place before or after school. All teachers will post their schedules as times may vary due to individual teacher schedules.
Assignments that are late/missing will need to be made up with the teacher during Academic Support in order for credit to be received.
Students need to schedule appointments with teachers to attend Academic Support. It is the child's responsibility to attend Academic Support to make up work.
