On November 8th, author Ryan Sloth visited the 1st grade students at Gilbert Elementary. Coach Sloth is a former Iowa State Cyclone and Iowa Barnstormer. He has written several books highlighting his main character, Sammy Sloth Sport Superstar. He shared with the students about being an author. In preparation for his visit, students read his books and did an activity in Makerspace about teamwork as that is a theme in many of his books.
Any child that will be 5 years old by September 15, 2020 is eligible for kindergarten or kindergarten prep. Later in the spring, we will hold a parent information evening about our kindergarten programs. We will also have kindergarten round-up where students will have a chance to see the classrooms and teachers can get to know the incoming kindergarteners. Students who sign-up on the link below will be contacted about those upcoming events.
If you have any questions, please call the elementary office at 232-3744.
