Haitian Children Thank Gayman Students!

As you know, last year students at Gayman Elementary School raised enough money to build a school for children in Haiti who barely have enough books, let alone iPads. This year, Gayman continues to support Poverty Resolutions, a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing awareness of global poverty and to inspire people to take action. In Haiti, they provide sustainable solutions to poverty, which empower individuals and organizations to meet the needs of their communities.

A recent article was published in the Doyelstown Patch. It includes a short video of the Haitian children thanking the Gayman community.

Cell Phone Use In School Parking Lot

Parents, I would like to bring to your attention a concern I have involving cell phone use during arrival and dismissal. There have been incidents across the country where people have been using their cell phones while driving in school parking lots, resulting in tragic accidents involving children. As you might imagine, children are not always aware of their surroundings. I urge you to be mindful of cell phone use when entering/exiting the school parking lot.

Thank you,
Mr. Testani

Special Persons' Day

Gayman celebrated Special Persons' Day on Friday, February 15th. Many visitors spent time in the classroom engaging in a Dr. Seuss-related activity and then proceeded to the cafeteria for light refreshments.

The event was a "Seussical Success" and a big thank-you to all grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbors and other special persons that took time out of their day to visit Gayman!

This week our 2nd and 4th grade students put on an outstanding performance. Kudos to all of the boys and girls for their efforts. Thank you to Mrs. Volpe and Mrs. Alderfer for their hard work and dedication to the arts!
