Welcome Back Gant Gators!

Dear Gant Families,

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!  I hope you all had a fabulous summer.  As we rapidly approach our 2017-2018 school year, I am getting more and more excited about all of the advancements on the horizon for our incredible school. 

We have quite a few new faces joining our Gant family this year!

In kindergarten, we welcome Joan Russell. She has jumped right in and is ready to be part of our kindergarten team. In first grade, we welcome Lorine Hankinson. She taught first grade at Webster, and we are thrilled that she will be here with us now. 

In second grade, please welcome Alisa Wakefield. She has subbed in 2nd grade throughout the district. 

With 2 retirements in third grade, we are pleased to welcome Kathleen Suarez and Michele Johnson. Kathleen comes to us from the elementary curriculum office and Michele taught 4/5 Gate at Tincher.

Lynda Peoples will be returning to 5th grade. She is excited about returning “home.” Also in 5th grade, we welcome Jennifer Barragan. Jennifer has been teaching GATE/Excel for several years at different sites throughout our district. 

So, when you see them, please take a moment and say hi! I have been bragging about what an amazing community we have at Gant and I look forward to another partnership this year!

Parental Involvement Opportunities

Our students, at Gant, succeed due to everyone in our community working together.  Teachers, students, and parents work together to provide the highest quality educational experience for our students.  Parents are a critical piece of this partnership and we seek to involve YOU in many different ways!  This  includes our Parent Teacher Association (PTA), our School Site Council (SSC), Volunteers In Public Schools (VIPS) and our various parent forums.  Many of us are also very busy in our professional lives which may make it difficult to be involved in school committees, we want your input as well!  If you have an idea, thought, or seek to understand elements of our school, please feel free to come in to the school office, call on the phone, or send an email.  We will do our best to contact you within 48 hours and consider each and every idea to support all of our students as they progress to become college and career ready.  Our school telephone number is (562) 430 - 3384.
