I am looking forward to a wonderful, exciting, & fun school year. First grade is amazing!


all about me

Hello! My name is Mrs. Lindsee Gourley. This will be my 8th year teaching for OPS, however, I have been with the district for eleven years. I love teaching at Standing Bear and am proud to be here. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. My husband, Scott, and I have been married for eleven years. We have three daughters; Nora (second grade), Ruby and Rose (3 year old twins). We also have two crazy dogs, Max and Rocky. I am originally from Des Moines, Iowa but moved to Omaha when Scott and I got married. GO CYCLONES!  

Scholastic Book Orders

Scholastic Book Orders

Dear First Grade Families,

       Above, you will see a link to order Scholastic books and help support our classroom library. You can complete your child’s book order online with this link. You can browse each catalog and the online store using the link above. If you choose to use this method, you can use a credit card to place your order. It eliminates the need to send order forms and checks back to school. Our class will still get bonus points to order new books for our classroom library.

       I will be placing orders both online and from the paper fliers this year, so please choose the method that works best for you. I have added a wish list to our class page.  Books purchased for the class will join our classroom library for all students to enjoy! I appreciate you supporting our classroom.

     With a $25 order, you can pick a FREE $5 Book (use code: READS).

I am often approached by families looking to donate additional items to our classroom. Below, I created a short list of donation items that we use excessively in addition to our Amazon Classroom Wishlist that I add to throughout the year:
