Our School

Hello Gilbert Heights Families,

October 8, 2020

We are finishing our third week of comprehensive distance learning and it has been a learning curve for teachers, students and parents. I value your partnership and patience as we all learn together. The teachers have expressed their joy in seeing their students online, getting to know them and excited to dive into learning.

1. NEW GH Food Pantry starts Friday, October 9, 2020 at 2:30-3:30. First come, first serve! 

Urban Gleaners is our partner in the food pantry. They rescue fresh, wholesome food from grocery stores, farmers markets, restaurants and small businesses that would otherwise go to waste, and get it to people who can use it.  Their aim is to help families and kids that need a little extra support, so that children in our community can be set up for success while learning and growing. They partner with places like Imperfect Foods, New Seasons Market, Zupan’s Market, Market of Choice and many other local businesses. 

2. Parent Information Sessions on FuelEd

To learn more about what FuelEd provides our teachers as they help your students Learn, Grow, and Thrive during Comprehensive Distance Learning, we invite you to attend one of our Family Introductions Zoom meetings listed below.

Spanish interpretation will be available for all sessions. Vietnamese interpretation is available 10/9 and 10/16.

Each meeting will cover the same topics, so it is not necessary to attend more than one.
