Welcome to a New Week

Hi GIS Families!


It was a rather fantastic week at school. Kids seemed happy to be back, routines picked up right where they left off, and everyone settled in beautifully.


Many classrooms are well underway with universal testing, and I wanted to give teachers a big shoutout for their work on this crucial task. We have an incredible group of staff- I know I feel lucky to have them!


Other essential pieces of information:



  • Our partnership with SchoolStore.com opens tomorrow! See below for more information!
  • K-3 and 4-6 winter music programs are being developed. I am working to build more time for lessons that do not interrupt core instruction.
  • Kindergarten registration will open this week. I will create a page on our website with information for families needing it.
  • Please make sure band students bring their instruments in on Fridays, and Ms. Gibbons will let you know if there are additional days your child needs to have their instrument.
  • Warm weather gear is a must. Our fabulous PTA is fundraising for additional gear, but please send your child to school with what they need.


As always, please reach out with questions; my door and inbox are always open!


Mrs. H

CIUUSD and The School Store

CIUUSD has partnered with School Store to help raise funds for our classrooms. These funds will help offset the cost of snacks and other needed items for our students. Your child/ren will be coming home with information tomorrow!



To access SchoolStore starting tomorrow:




Students can generate their own "code," which will allow them to earn prizes. You will get information on this tomorrow.
