Mission: “Ensure All Students are Successful”

\

Hello GES Parents,

I am so proud of how hard our students are working, and of course, how much time and energy our teachers put into planning engaging, rigorous lessons for their students. Go Mustangs!

I look forward to seeing all the great learning happening in our building during the month of February. February is a short, but a busy month so please make sure to keep in touch with your classroom teacher. This year, our 100th day of school falls in the month of February! This is always an exciting day and I love seeing how some of our classrooms choose to celebrate this day. Also, our 4th and 5th grade class will wrap up their downhill ski program and 3rd grade will continue to participate in cross-country skiing.

I so am proud to work with such an outstanding staff and my appreciation goes out to all of them for making this year such a success. All effective schools rely on connection and belonging. We realize and recognize the need to shift our expectations and pay close attention to our students’ academics, but also their social-emotional needs.

Have a restful weekend and thank you for your continued support of our students and school and we look forward to seeing everyone on Monday!

Kind Regards,

Michael J Seefried, Principal

Happy New Year! I hope your children all had a wonderful Winter Break and have enjoyed their week back at school. This time of year is when we see some of our best academic growth, so it's an exciting way to start off the new decade! 

 

With the snow and ice build-up in the parking lot, you may notice that the curb is not so pronounced as it is in warmer months. Please mind your speed in both the parking lot and the student drop off/pick up area. The safety of our students is our top priority and we appreciate you looking out for all kids! Likewise, please note this friendly reminder that the parking lot loop is for buses only. Please drop off or pick up your children in the loop parallel to 11th street. Only use the parking lot if you are parking in a space and walking into school. 

 

I would also ask you to take note of a few changes at Gunnison Elementary School that are being implemented in this New Year. If you are picking up your child during the school day, we ask that you sign him or her out at the front office and wait for your child at the office while our staff pages the classroom. Your child will meet you at the front office. This will help limit distractions to teaching and learning. If you have questions, please feel free to address them to me.

 

Finally, in an effort to better prioritize my time to support teaching and learning, Mrs. Hannah and I are working together to make my schedule more conducive to spending more time in the classroom. This means I may seem less available for drop-in visits or telephone conversations. However, I deeply value communication with family and community members, so, when you would like to speak with me, please feel free to call or email Mrs. Hannah at the front desk, and she will schedule a time to speak. 

 

Thank you for your patience while we continue to implement these changes and thank you for your ongoing support of our schools. Have a wonderful weekend.
