gains informational meeting Monday, September 26th

Ladies of Buchser! Are you interested in hearing about women who have challenged themselves and overcome obstacles to make it in the STEAM world? Come to Mrs Winslow's room Monday September 26 during 7th and 8th grade lunch to hear about the GAINS club and our plan for the year. Feel free to email Mrs. Winslow if you have any questions.

What is GAINS?

GAINS stands for Girls Achieving in Non-Traditional Subjects.  GAINS runs from 6th grade through 12th grade in most secondary SCUSD schools. 

The program's main goal is to encourage girls interest in math and science careers, as well as to introduce them to careers that they might not normally consider.  

GAINS will meet monthly at a time to be determined. During these meetings, girls have the opportunity to hear a female speaker from the community talk about the career path she took to get to where she is today.  They will learn about the many different careers available out in the world, as well as educational opportunity.  

Attendance is required at scheduled events!!  If students cannot attend an event, they need to inform Mrs. Winslow at or Mrs. Kodi at

GAINS stresses personal responsibility.

TO OUR BUCHSER COMMUNITY:  We are always looking for new and exciting speakers to come and visit our GAINS girls.  If you know of any influential women in the workforce, please contact Mrs. Winslow or Mrs. Kodi.
