Happy February


We are getting off to a wonderful 2020! There are so many exciting things going on at Gulf Shores Elementary. The kids are loving AR, and we are loving seeing them so enthusiastic about reading! We also have our sock hop coming up February 7th. Please remember that you must accompany your child to this. Details are included in the newsletter~

Our first city school system 5K will be February 29th--the Dolphin Dash. We want to encourage everyone to participate- adults and kids. The homeroom with the largest student participation will get an extra recess on March 6.

If you haven't joined our PTO, please consider doing so. We encourage parent involvement and know it takes us all:) We have an amazing group of parents and would love you to be a part of it. Their next meeting is on February 19th at 8:30 in the cafeteria.

Have a wonderful month and please do not hesitate to call if you have any questions or concerns.

100th Day of School

Across the campus students observed the 100th day of school. Students had fun dressing up like 100 year olds, counting 100 objects, making posters with 100 things, and learning all about the number 100.

Come on Out to the Sock Hop!

The PTO is sponsoring a Sock Hop. The Sock Hop will take place on Friday, February 7, from 6-8 pm. All activities will be in the cafeteria and the main building. All students, Pre-K-5th Grade, are invited to attend. Parents must accompany children. Tickets will be available for purchase at the door: $1.00 per ticket or 12 tickets for $10.00. Tickets may be used to purchase food items (pizza, drinks, popcorn, coke floats) and to participate in activities (face painting, cake walk, games, photo booth).

Be there or be square!
