Spring Pictures Next Friday, March 25

You must order a picture package before March 25 if you want your child's spring picture taken. Students without a package order will not have their picture taken.

You may also order a 2022-2023 Gables Yearbook online through 3/28/2022. A yearbook has school pictures of all the teachers and students by class in a book form. Students often sign each other's yearbooks with well wishes and memories at the end of the year. It's a fun keepsake for your family to revisit in the future and remember your time at Gables. Order at the same site as above and use a different keyword: Keyword = GBLYB, cost = $14 online.

Most of these programs have different levels of financial assistance available. Inquire at the specific program for details. Watch a recording of this session (3/17/2022) here.

School Chromebooks Usage

Chromebooks assigned to your student are for school use by your student. Additionally, computer usage is monitored for appropriateness, and sites visited on a child's machine are attributed to that child (even if it is really an adult or older household member who is using it for non-school work or entertainment).

We appreciate your help in ensuring our Gators have the appropriate tools they need when they need them! If you have any questions or issues with your current Chromebook(s), please reach out to your child's teacher or Ms. Cahill at


Clean Out Green Folders

Best practice is to check folders daily. In case you have not looked in a while, take next week's End of Third Quarter as a reminder to clean it out now!
