Principal's Message

Dear Gilbert Families,

Welcome back to the new school year. The Gilbert Staff and I are excited for the 18-19 school year. I am happy to report that last spring we were one of the schools in Garden Grove to receive the Honor Roll Award earning recognition for high achievement in student success, reduction in achievement gaps, and high college readiness in students. In grades 3-6, students continue to demonstrate growth on both ELA and Math SBAC tests and have surpassed the county results. 

This year we are committed to continuing the lunch time Pure Game Soccer program that also focuses on character development. We are excited to implement a new program, Parents in Action-Healthy Kids First, that trains parents to lead students in healthy activities during recess three days a week. We continue to seek parent volunteers for this program and to also join our wonderful PTA. Parent involvement is an important part of your child's success and connectivity to school. Please be sure to set up your Seesaw account to stay connected to what your child is learning at school and too communicate with the teacher.

On behalf of the Gilbert staff, we are committed to a partnership with all families to ensure each student's success.

 

Mrs. Santana, 

Principal
