Principal's Note

Jim Woytek - Principal

The mission of the Gunnison Elementary School is to develop lifelong learners in a safe, caring environment by providing a standards-based instruction at each student's level, meeting assessment targets, and increasing individual achievement.


Dear Families,

I want to thank everyone who attended Thursday’s Family Literacy Night. Mrs. Pike and our staff put on an amazing evening of fun and literacy for the whole family! Our next big family event will be Family Math Night on 3/14 (Pi Day!). I hope you can join us.

Thank you to our staff at Lake School for hosting a wonderful week of conferences; GES will host them the week of March 12th. Thanks to PTA for providing meals for teachers throughout the week, and for the coffee cart (donated by Mocha’s!) this week at both schools. We have a wonderful group of parents and teachers who help support this organization and remember that it’s NEVER too late to join PTA. Just $10 in dues and helping with one event can go a long way!

I hope that you have a wonderful President’s Day Weekend. Please remember that there is no school on Monday, February 19th and Tuesday, February 20th. After we return from break, we will be heading into a very busy time of the year. State Assessment, Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) is just around the corner. The State has cut the amount of time assessments will take in grades 3-5, which is a positive for both students and teachers! Please keep an eye out in March for the District’s opt-out policy and paper-pencil testing request.
