2019-2020 Kindergarten Prep Sign-Up

In December, the Gilbert Community School District Board of Education gave approval to once again offer Kindergarten Prep at Gilbert Elementary. Kindergarten Prep is our version of an alternative kindergarten program. This program is intended to serve children between their preschool and kindergarten school years. The program will help meet the needs of students who are not quite ready for kindergarten either socially, academically, emotionally, and/or physically. Birthdate is often a primary factor for parents who choose to send their children to this program. Students must be 5 years old on or before September 15, 2019.

The program will operate Monday-Friday from 8:05am-12:00pm. Snack will be served, but the students will not eat lunch at school. Children who typically qualify for district transportation will also be provided transportation to and from school.

If you are unsure if you would like to enroll your child in this program, please talk to your child’s preschool teacher. They are often a great resource in helping make this decision. If you are interested, please complete the information below. We will send additional communication to those who sign-up.

2019-2020 Preschool Sign-Up

Any child that will be 4 years old on or before September 15, 2019 is eligible for preschool at Gilbert Elementary. Sign-up will begin on February 1st at 9:00am. All sign-up is done online via the link that will be located on the website. Students are taken on a first-come, first serve basis with preference given to students who live in the Gilbert district. We do ask for your preference of morning or afternoon session, but we do not guarantee that we will be able to honor those requests.

The Gilbert preschool program operates Tuesday-Friday. The morning session is from 8:05-11:05, and the afternoon session is from 12:15-3:15. Students are able to ride the bus to school in the morning and home from school in the afternoon; however, parents are responsible for mid-day transportation.

Please contact Staci Edwards, elementary principal, with any additional questions.







Preschool and 2nd grade Students Visit Northridge Village

A group of 2nd grade and preschool students visited Northridge Village on December 14th. The 2nd graders had created a gingerbread village depicting many landmarks in the Gilbert community. Those students then shared the village with the residents at Northridge Village and read a poem. Preschool students also sang for the residents. A highlight of the visit was Northridge resident Elaine Brown, a retired Gilbert teacher, was able to be at the performance.IMG_1675 IMG_1685 IMG_2862
