    Principal'S MESSAGE

    Gant families! 

    As we head into February, I am constantly reminded about how truly amazing our students are at Gant. 

    In December, they made Christmas cards for the VETS at the Long Beach VA hospital. With so much love in their hearts, classes are now making Valentine cards to be delivered. The smiles on those receiving, as well as those that are giving, are just priceless. 

    Our kids really do understand the importance and value in making others feel loved and appreciated. 

    Thank you to the parents, teachers, and Gant staff for being such great role models in teaching our Gant students to give back ☺. 

    Minnie Gant Principal

    Valentines for Veterans

    PTA will be collecting valentines to deliver to veterans in the Spinal Injury Unit of the VA hospital.
