We are Thankful!

This year we will once again extend the spirit of giving to the Thanksgiving Holiday. As a school community, we would like to offer support to Gayman families in need by means of food baskets. Each classroom will be collecting items to prepare a Thanksgiving dinner for a family in need. We are suggesting that each child bring in a food item from the list below. Contributions will be collected in the classrooms beginning Wednesday, November 3rd through Thursday, November 18th.


If you would like to make a monetary contribution, we will use the funds to purchase grocery store gift cards for families. Please send your donation (cash or check made payable to “Gayman Elementary School”) to the school office in an envelope marked “Thanksgiving Fund.”


We appreciate your voluntary participation in this worthwhile project. We truly believe that in giving we also receive, and helping others immeasurably enriches our children’s lives.

American Education Week

The week of November 15, 2021 is “American Education Week.” In past years, classroom teachers and schools have planned events for families who are able to attend during the day, whereby lessons or other activities could be observed.


Family engagement is a key component of the work our teachers do each day. Our classroom teachers regularly share videos, photos, and news with parents and guardians, so that they may discuss, support, and understand what their children are learning.


This year, our principals and classroom teachers are mitigating the added risk that COVID-19 brings to events and gatherings in our schools. As an additional temporary mitigation strategy, we will not be organizing in-person classroom visits to avoid unnecessary exposure.

Principals will work with teachers and staff to highlight what is occurring in our classrooms and communicate that out to parents.


Respectfully,

Abram M. Lucabaugh, Ed.D.

Kindergarten Registration

Visit www.cbsd.org/register for more details, including necessary documents to gather in order to register your kindergarten students. PLEASE CONSIDER REGISTERING RIGHT AWAY IN ORDER TO AID THE DISTRICT IN ITS PLANNING FOR 2022-2023.

Attendance

Parents and guardians are able to submit an absence request via the Parent Portal. When a student is absent from school, but the school did not receive communication from the parent or guardian, a text message and email will be sent.


All attendance questions can be directed to Christine Stevens, cstevens@cbsd.org, in the Gayman Office.
