Through grants applied for and received by GCMS, the school was able to install a WeatherBug weather station. The weather station not only offers community members of Caldwell-West Caldwell up-to-date weather forecast and alerts, but the teacher resources offer lesson plans that incorporate weather patterns and forecast across content areas. A WeatherBug app is also available to download for smartphones.
The Online Weather Center allows GCMS to turn the school website into the source of local weather information for students, teachers, parents, and the entire community. It presents weather information from our new tracking station on the school’s website. The tool also includes additional weather-related information for the local area including; radar and satellite maps, camera time lapses, and forecasts.
The weather site is available from the GCMS website or by clicking below.
