Michael J. Seefried - Principal


Mission: “Ensure All Students are Successful”

 

Hi GES Families,


Student Progress Reports went home today (Friday, January 21) with the students for grades 1 -5. The Progress Report gives information regarding your student’s progress toward meeting the Colorado Academic Standards (CAS). Your child is also being assessed on his or her overall progress towards achieving the characteristics of an effective learner. Please contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions and/or need more information.

 

Remember, before sending your child out to the bus stop or dropping them off at school, please take a few moments to make sure that they are dressed appropriately for the weather. Students should come to school wearing clothing that keeps them warm and appropriately dressed for outdoor recess.

 

Also, please remember that if you use the school parking lot, please do not park or drop off/pick up students in the bus drop off zone. The buses need to be able to pull through the bus zone unobstructed. Thank you for keeping our students safe!

 

Have a restful weekend and stay in touch with us and let us know if you have any questions. As always, we are ever grateful for your support.

 

 


Kind Regards,

Michael Seefried


Gunnison Elementary School 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.
