Dear Gilbert Families,

We are continuing to work to help our students improve their skills in Reading, Mathematics, and Writing. The teachers are incorporating arts integrated strategies such as VTS and Reading a Portrait in the classroom.

Please note that students should be dropped off no earlier than 8:15 in the morning as we do not have staff on duty to monitor them prior to this time window.

We hope that everyone has a great week at school.
