Gator Gazette Volume 2 Issue 5

Our Mission

A journey of a thousand miles begins with one single step. It is our mission to provide all students with meaningful and engaging learning experiences in a safe and nurturing environment, in order to create lifelong successful learners.

February 2021

February is considered the month of showing LOVE!!! The teachers at Gilbert Elementary show love to our students each and every day. Our teachers are devoted and caring. This year has been a very unique year, but GES teachers have stepped up and been amazing. The teachers at GES are committed to providing our students with the best possible education, and of course, LOVING them each and every day. Our students are considered part of the Gator family. The love our teachers have for our students and their future is beautiful to see.

I believe that LOVE conquers all!!! I believe that no problem is too big to be solved if LOVE is at the center of the solution. In my years as an educator, I have explained to students what a world full of LOVE would look like. Could you imagine a world where everyone truly LOVED each other? Picture a world where all words are kind and positive. Picture a world where all actions are based on the happiness of others and their happiness is the intent of your actions. Picture a world where spending time with others is always joyful and happy. When I speak with students, I encourage them to be part of the solution. I encourage my students to be a reason others are happy and smiling. I encourage them to LOVE and how their LOVE for others could impact the world.

As we work throughout this unique school year, I want you to know that your student is LOVED by the staff at Gilbert Elementary School. We canโ€™t wait for this pandemic to pass and all of our families can come back and have a positive impact on the students at GES. We hope you have a wonderful February.

We Love Our Gators!!!
