WOW, What Can We Say?

Dear Parents,

We want to extend a huge THANK YOU to our Parents and our AMAZING PTO for this week's TEACHER AND STAFF APPRECIATION.

WOW, What can we say? Our entire staff started their day entering into a beautifully decorated area where they enjoyed a wonderful continental breakfast. By lunch time, we were transported to a LUNCH FROM AROUND THE WORLD.

This week's festivities have been the talk of the school. Everyone was made to feel loved and appreciated and we are so grateful for providing this wonderful experience for our faculty and staff.

It is because of the continuous support of our parents and the hours of planning and preparation from our PTO that we had one of the best weeks that we can recall.

Thank you from,

Gemini Faculty and Staff

New Digital Sign Coming Soon!

We are so excited to announce that we will be getting a new Digital Marquee Sign out front of our school within the next month. Construction just started with a new pole being installed this week. Please know that while we are waiting for the next phase of construction, we do not currently have the ability to change the marquee on the south facing side due to the pole. The messages on the north facing side will have the correct information. Please disregard the message on the south side.

Thank you,

The Front Office

Run for the Gecko 5k is in ONE WEEK - Saturday May 13 at 6:45am! Participants will get credit for 25 straws / laps and a super cool charm for their necklace. Hope to see you there!

There were lots of exciting milestones this week as we get close to the end of the year. First up this week we saw 5th grader Hakan Hansen run his 200th mile! The entire Hansen clan have been regulars on the field this year and last year. We love to see their super fast laps on the field and in the race series. Also running his 200th mile this week was Kindergartner Isaac Wilson. Isaac started Morning Mile last year when he was still in VPK. He can always be counted on to run a few laps before school. Awesome job!

Next up were two first time 100 milers! This is the first year 3rd grader Dax LaJoie and 1st grader Finn Vorwaller have run 100 miles! We are so thrilled to have them and their siblings on the field every morning. This is such an admirable accomplishment and shows real commitment. Great job guys!

Don’t forget - for the remainder of the school year Morning Mile will begin at 7am. The last day of Morning Mile is Friday, May 19.

Get notified about details regarding Gemini’s Morning Mile Program through the Remind App - text @dee9f2f to 81010 or go to Questions - email Melissa McNall at
