Gant Calendar

From Your Principal

WOW!!!! A whole year has gone by! Where did the time go? We have had a very successful year here at Gant. As we finish off the year, let’s reflect on all of the positive things going on at Gant.

Our students are amazing! Each month we celebrated and honored those who represented our monthly grow mindset mantra. Each student recognized worked hard and was a great example for his or her classroom!

Let’s talk about Jiji… this was the first time in Gant history where a class met the 100% goal of completion! Way to go Mrs. K and class! Coming in a close 2nd, was Mrs. Johnson’s class reaching 99.7%! Both classes were rewarded a free dress day!

Speaking of free dress, before the end of the school year, we will be sending home an updated dress code policy for the 2018-2019 school year, which will include holiday dress attire, as well as a monthly college day!

We had several new teachers to our Gant family this year, and I want to say thank you for embracing them and making them feel like part of our Gant family!

Enjoy your time off with your loved ones and I look forward to hearing all about your summer adventures!

Congratulations, 5th Graders

It’s amazing to celebrate, yet hard to say goodbye to our amazing 5th graders.

Congratulations for all you’ve done and who you’ve become during your time at Gant.

It may be time to say, “Later, Gator” but please don’t be a stranger. You’ll always be part of the Gant family.

Minnie Gant's FUN RUN was FUNTASTIC!


Thank you to all of our great volunteers, families, and communities for supporting our annual fundraiser and fun-time!

The Gant PTA relies on fundraising to support our school with resources such as a computer aide, physical education aides, and classroom enrichment for the nearly 600 children who attend Minnie Gant, and we couldn’t do it without you!

With the 4th of July holiday fast approaching, the Long Beach Fire and Police Departments would like to remind residents, visitors, and staff that all fireworks, including those marked “Safe and Sane,” are ILLEGAL in the City of Long Beach. 

The Fire and Police Departments will be out in force the days leading up to and on July 4th to ensure compliance of the Long Beach City Ordinance that bans fireworks. Although both Departments seek voluntary compliance to ensure public safety, this duty often requires strict enforcement of all laws through arrests and citations. Anyone cited or arrested for fireworks violations may be faced with a $1,000 fine, sentenced to jail for six months, or both. The fines and penalties may increase depending on the fireworks’ classification. 

Fireworks may be voluntarily disposed at collection bins located at:

  • All fire stations
  • Lifeguard Headquarters 2100 E. Ocean Boulevard, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Any police station

For more information, alerts, advisories, and emergency news please visit www.longbeach.gov/fire, "Like" us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and Instagram, or contact LBFD Community Services at (562) 570-2525. 

If you See Something, Say Something! Call Long Beach Police Dispatch at (562) 435-6711 or 9-1-1 if you observe dangerous or illegal activities.


Together, we can enjoy a safe holiday!



These meetings help the school district to strategize programs to support Pacific Islander students.  View the attached flier for details and a schedule of meetings through September.


State law requires all public schools to create a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about your child's school, which includes:

  • School Description and Mission
  • School Programs and Instructional Materials
  • Opportunities for Parent Involvement
  • Test Results
  • Safety Plan
  • Facilities

We invite you to view the School Accountability Report Card (SARC) for your child's school.  You can find your school's SARC here.
