From the school

Gilbert continued to diligently provide a number of effective ways for parents and teachers to communicate. All teachers provided parents with their school e-mail addresses and a majority of parents took advantage of this easy and timely way to ask questions, express concerns and gain information last year. Gilbert is online to implement the new ParentLink program, this will be an excellent way for parents to stay informed on their students' academic progress and school behavior, communicate with teachers, obtain updates on homework, class events, curriculum highlights, and receive reports on school-wide activities and news. Phone calls, parent conferences, and two-way notes are still ongoing avenues for parent-teacher communication.

In September, the annual parents involved in education night was held to engage parents in an important dialogue on Gilbert's special programs and academic achievements. Also last year, PTA membership increased steadily and this active group was an integral part of a number of school-wide events including: open house, family literacy-math nights, PTA reflections contest, fifth grade send-off, movement marathon, matinees, Nevada Reading Week, holiday food drive and teacher appreciation.
