    You've said you want better channels for enriching your kids' lives here at Gant, and we've listened! For the 2019-2020 school year, we're launching this new section for parents who want to roll up their sleeves and get to it.

    Welcome Back Picnic


    We could see and feel the difference during the Zero-Waste Lunch Challenge 4/1-18! We reduced trash 50% (good for the planet), and we increased TerraCycle (good for the planet and revenue for programs).

    To prepare for our first Zero Waste Lunch Challenge for 2019/2020, which will be Sept 3-13, please visit our Lunchbox fundraiser site for all your zero Waste lunch needs and to help raise funds for Minnie Gant.

    Here is also a link for discount code for more zero Waste lunch items at

    Please continue to collect as part of our TerraCycle program over the summer break. We will begin our Terracycle collection on the first day of school. 

    2019-2020 PTA Executive Board

    Welcome to our new board members for the 2019-2020 year. Along with many others, the PTA board members give considerable time to our school. They go to meetings, go to trainings, and go the extra mile for our school. Many have served for several years while welcoming and training newer members to maintain a strong PTA and programs that support our school and all of our children.  So, welcome new members, and thank you to all. We are very grateful Gators!

    Lost & Found

    Please mark all items brought to school (jackets, sweaters, lunch boxes, backpacks) with your child's first and last name so that they don’t end up on the red racks outside of the auditorium!

    All marked items will be returned to your child's classroom & the rest (not picked up) will be donated to charity at the end of each month.
