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,

We have just one Monday left in our school year (remember, we do not have school on May 27th in observance of Memorial Day). We have so many wonderful end of the year activities planned for students and I hope that you can come enjoy with us. Field Days are next week, as are a number of class field trips to some amazing sites. Be sure to contact your child’s teacher if you have questions!


As many of you may already know, GES is a member school of the Early Literacy Grant. Over the last three years, the grant has helped us fund between 1 and 1.5 teacher positions for reading intervention, conduct professional development, and purchase approved interventions and materials for students. The funding was contingent upon meeting certain goals in grades K-3. I am happy to share with you that, this year, our K-3 teams have met all three goals set by the Colorado Department of Education and, as a K-5 team, we have never had a higher percentage of students reading at or above benchmark level. I am so proud of your children’s teachers. It is truly a team effort and everyone, regardless of their position at our school, has played an important role in this success. Thanks, too, for all of your support of your children. Have a wonderful weekend and I hope to see you at Field Day!
