Welcome to a New School Year at Gale Elementary!

Dear Gale Elementary Families:

As we are “sliding” into another school year, our Gale School staff has already witnessed the wonderful truth behind our 2017-2018 school theme:

“Education is like a baseball game, it needs all of it’s players: parents, teachers, students and community.”

When I consider the accomplishments achieved within our school community and those yet to come, this quote seems fitting. I am thrilled to be a part of a school community where family members are visible and actively engaged. Your commitment to your child’s education, past and present, are good examples of what is required of this team to achieve success. One of the goals of this school year is to help build and support an even stronger team by relying on you, the families, to support our efforts in providing a quality education for every student!

Gale Elementary School has a legacy of rigor, resiliency, and success. I am honored and privileged to lead a dynamic community where teachers and staff cultivate an environment where students achieve and believe in themselves and their school. In an effort to continue this tradition, we will spend this year “fine-tuning” new initiatives that began last school year. Look for monthly “Parent Power Hour” letters coming home where you will have the opportunity to learn more about:

-CUSD 205 Standards Based Report Cards
-K-5 Quarterly Plans
-ScanTron Achievement Series
-Skyward Family Access
-PARCC Assessments
-Multi-level Tiers of Support

Your input, feedback, and support will be critical to my leadership, the teaching and learning environment and the success of your child in our school. Find information regarding upcoming events and curricular activities on one of our media outlets.
