Literacy Curriculum and Assessment Nights for Parents

The elementary had a great turn-out for the curriculum night on September 21. A link to the handouts and the Powerpoint can be found at http://www.gilbertcsd.org/schools/gilbert-elementary-school/literacy/.

On Tuesday, October 17 at 7:00, the elementary will follow up with a night about assessment. We will share information about the literacy assessments that are used to help teachers make instructional decisions and determine progress. Parents will have a chance to see the assessments in action. We will also share the fall early literacy data with parents about their individual child(ren) and how that compares to benchmarks and the class. This meeting will be helpful for parents in preparation for fall conferences.

Welcome to Gilbert Elementary School

Every Student Every Day is the mission of Gilbert Elementary. Our staff serves 390 students in preschool-2nd grade. A strong curriculum emphasis is placed on early literacy, problem solving and STEM at Gilbert Elementary.  We are dedicated to making our school a place where all students, staff and families can learn and grow together.  High levels of parent involvement and small group instruction are what make the elementary a special place for our students and families. Along with our accredited preschool program, the district supports low class sizes, which allows for the success of Every Student, Every Day.
