    Thanksgiving Food Drive

    Way to go, Gant Gators!!! Look at all that food we collected for the Long Beach Rescue Mission and Lutheran Social Services food bank. Thank you to the Millikan Compass Capstone kids for picking it and making the delivery.


    PTA Reflections AWARDS NIGHT

    On November 10, a virtual reception was held to honor all Gant students who submitted original works of art for the PTA Reflections Program! This year's theme was "I Matter Because ...", and despite this year's challenges, Gant received 25 fabulous submissions, showcased in these videos.

    A big hand to all the talented students who participated! Artists who received first place at Gant will move on to district-wide competition. A special thank you to Ben Rolly for chairing this year's program and putting together the video showcases.

    Thank You, Veterans
    Frightfully Delightful

    Every pumpkin-decorating submission this year was a winner! We applaud your ghoulish creativity and ghastly humor, Gant Gators.

    Teacher Spotlight

    My name is Trinette Coster, and I grew up in Anaheim. I graduated from CSULB and began working as a teacher’s aide for LBUSD in 1984. I eventually became a teacher in 1991 but took off several years to care for my children. In 2000, I was asked to take over a class at Minnie Gant and ended up staying till 2010. All in all, I’ve taught kindergarten through sixth grade and at several different schools throughout the district. 

    I currently live in Seal Beach with my husband, Cosby cat, and my dogs Cupcake, Bon-Bon, and Layla. I enjoy walking, dancing, bike riding, gardening, antique hunting, watching classic movies and spending time with friends and family.

    I feel fortunate to be back at my favorite school, Minnie Gant!
