Message from the Principal:

Dear Parents and Guardians,

What a week!!!

On Tuesday, the finalists for the GPS Superintendent job were announced (press release below). The school board is hoping to name a new superintendent on September 26.

We had so many great things going on around Settler's Point this week! On Thursday, we welcomed Representative Travis Grantham to our school as a part of "Take Your Legislator to School Day." We were chosen to represent Gilbert Public Schools for this event. It started with an informal "Meet and Greet" with teachers, then our Student Council officers gave him a tour of our campus. He finished the day up observing and teaching mini lessons to the students in a few different classrooms.

On Friday, our PTSO had a "Rockin Thru the Ages," social event and had a great turnout! These events have been cancelled in the last few years because there weren't enough PTSO volunteers to coordinate. We really appreciate the increasing number of parents that we have participating in PTSO and Dad's Club!

It is my job to serve the parents, students, and staff of Settler's Point. If there is anything I can do to help, please feel free to reach out to me.

Robert Bircher
