As principal of Gordon Elementary School, I would like to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year. We are very excited that your children will be with us this year as we continue to work together to Build Bright Futures. At Gordon, we always work to make all decisions with the mindset that Kids Deserve It! We will continue this year to work hard to provide engaging and innovative experiences for every student. Student voice and choice is very important to us. We want our kiddos to feel heard, appreciated and valued, and to be a driving force in their education. Thank you for sharing your children with us each day!
Students at Gordon have the opportunity to participate in K-Kids club. K-Kids is a service learning club that is part of the Kiwanis club. The K-Kids club is open to all students at Gordon. Last year the entire school staff read, Kids Deserve It!. This year we are reading The Wild Card. Both of these reads focus on engaging our students, and helping them to reach their greatest potential. This year we will be implementing bimonthly parent coffees focusing on a variety of topics. We will also incorporate a “Loved Ones” breakfast in the month of February where students can bring parents, grandparents, or another important person in their lives. More info to come on these events!
We welcome parents and families with open arms at Gordon! We encourage families to volunteer throughout the year. We hope that you will continue to join and support our outstanding PTA. In addition, if you ever have a question or concern, please contact your teacher and if needed, a member of the administrative team. We are a family and are always happy to help. Our goal is to always create a safe, positive, welcoming, engaging, and challenging learning environment.
I look forward to another wonderful and exciting year at Gordon. Thank you for your continued support as we work to Build Bright Futures for each and every child.
Natalie S. Bare, Principal
