Dear Gilbert Families,
Welcome to the 2021-22 school year! Last year brought new challenges as we started off the year postponing in-person instruction until we moved into our hybrid schedule in March. This year we are excited to welcome all our students back full-time. Rest assured, we are committed to provide our families with guidance as CDPH updates schools. Gilbert staff will continue to offer high quality learning to meet the needs of our students and will provide communication, guidance, and support every step of the way.
This year we will continue to focus on our District's Strategic Plan: Academic Skills + Personal Skills = Lifelong Success! Our academic program is rigorous, engaging, and aligned to the state standards. Our amazing teachers use research-based strategies to develop students’ critical thinking skills, including the meaningful use of technology in instruction, learning how to collaborate, and helping students develop scholarly habits and motivation. As a staff, we are committed to 21st Century Learning to best prepare students for a successful future. In these challenging times, it is also a priority at Gilbert to support the social-emotional well-being of our students and families. This year, additional resources have been allocated to support students with recovering from the challenges and trauma from the events of the past year.
Mrs. Santana, Principal
