Mrs. Michelle Miller, Principal

I cannot believe we are in the final stretch.  Friday is the LAST DAY FOR STUDENTS for the 2022-2023 School Year and what a fabulous year it has been.  Our students and staff have worked so hard and they deserve a relaxing break this summer!  We have so many exciting things going on this week to kick off our summer.  Too many to list, so be sure to pay attention to your child’s teacher’s notes and messages this week so you don’t miss anything.  But, let’s go over a few things?


*Our Fifth Graders are about to be promoted to Middle School.  We are sad to see them go, but want to send them off with the Fifth Grade Celebration tomorrow night, Tuesday, from 6:00-7:30.  Please be sure you have turned in your permission slip in order to enter.  Parent, we are asking that you are respectful of pickup time promptly at 7:30, as our staff will need to get home to their own family.


*Speaking of our fifth grade, if you have a son or daughter in that grade level please check their backpack (or check out your email in a few minutes) for some important pre-registration information for our promotion ceremony.  We are working hard to help families avoid waiting in long lines the morning of the graduation, but we need your help.  You need to pre-register you and your guests by Wednesday so we can send home your Raptor badges (security badges) prior to the ceremony.  People who have those badges stuck on their shirt will proceed in, without waiting, on Friday morning.  Check out the Promotion Guidelines blue note in your in your child’s backpack, or your email, for more details.


*Thanks to our amazing Student Council, our entire school is celebrating Spirit Week next week this week.  Please help your child join in on the fun.

Monday:  Wear your favorite hat

Tuesday: Show off your tie dye

Wednesday: Celebrate your favorite sports team

Thursday:  How mismatched can you dress?

Friday:  Wear your Gulf Gate gear and wish our 5th graders a Tiger farewell


This will be our final Miller’s Minute for this school year.  Please know that it was my honor to work alongside of our amazing staff to serve Gulf Gate’s families and students this year.  We love our Tiger Family and hope you have a wonderful summer filled with love and laughter.

Proud Principal of Gulf Gate Elementary
