Principal's Note

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.

From the Principal’s Desk:

Dear Families,

Remember that Sunday is the beginning of Daylight Savings Time. I’ll forever be reminded of a conversation with someone who asked who the genius was that scheduled PARCC testing to begin the day after the time change and I had to admit that it was me! We won’t begin PARCC testing this week, but State assessments will begin on the first week of April. All students in grades 3, 4, and 5 will take the PARCC English Language Arts and Math assessments, and 4th and 5th Grade will take CMAS Social Studies and Science, respectively. We are required by Federal and State Law to meet 95% student participation on these assessments, however, if you have concerns about your child sitting for the assessments, please contact me before the testing window opens on April 3rd. Also feel free to contact me any time with questions about State and local assessments. Have a wonderful weekend and a great week of conferences with teachers!
