We are all in this together and we must be united for our students. Flexibility, as things may and probably will change as we go will be important. This week your child's teacher will be calling you to give you more information about expectations for next week. Individual conference times will be set up and will vary by grade levels. Please make every effort to attend the conference. K-3 and special education students will be asked to stay a little longer to complete some reading testing.

We are anticipating that we will start school as scheduled on August 18th. We are hopeful that it will be in-person with all our students but are preparing for variations that may need to take place do to COVID-19 CDC guidelines. We recognize that students are our foundation and will make decisions that positively impact their learning and well-being.

Dear parents, In planning ahead for the 2020-2021 school year, parent requests will be taking into consideration but not guaranteed as it is our goal to have equally balanced classrooms. If you would like to submit a possible request it must be done in writing via email to: email@example.com by April 30th. In this email please include your name, a call back number and describe your child's learning style and justification for the request you are making. No exceptions to this deadline will be accepted. If the teacher you request is no longer in that grade level your child will still be assigned to that class. Keep in mind we are a distinguished school because of the high level of teacher expertise in the building. We are looking forward to a great upcoming school year with your child.

Exciting News for Gil Sanchez Elementary Gil Sanchez Elementary has been chosen as one of the two schools to represent New Mexico this year as a National Title I Distinguished School. The program is a project of the National Title I Association that publicly recognizes schools for their positive educational advances in one of the following three categories: Category 1: Exceptional student performance for two consecutive years Category 2: Closing the achievement gap between student groups Category 3: Excellence in serving special populations of students (e.g., homeless, migrant, English learners, etc.). Gil Sanchez Elementary was chosen under Category 1: Exceptional student performance for two consecutive years. Because only two schools per state can be selected as a National Title I Distinguished School each year, this award is an especially prestigious honor for the school, staff and students. Gil Sanchez Elementary students, community and staff will be honored at the next school board meeting on Tuesday, December 10th at 5:00 p.m. Please join us to help celebrate our success.
