Mrs. Michelle Miller, Principal
Good evening, Gulf Gate Families. It’s Mrs. Miller to help you keep all of the amazing things happening at Gulf Gate on the top of your list. Let me start by thanking all of our wonderful families who attending Movie Night and the Gingerbread House evening at GGES. What a fun week we had. Let’s take a look at what we have to look forward to:
- We are getting into the holiday spirit with Spirit Dress-Up Days for students starting on December 11th. We will be sending home a calendar with the information this week and it will be posted to our Facebook. Help your child get in the spirit of the holidays and participate in the fun!
- Vision Screening will be on December 5th for kindergarten, 1st and 3rd grades and anyone new to the state.
- This Thursday, December 7th, is our Kindergarten Musical Concert. Students should arrive dressed in their holiday best at 5:30 and the concert will start at 6:00. I can’t wait to hear those sweet voices!
- This Thursday is also our ESOL Parent Info Meeting starting at 9:00 in the media. We are excited to welcome families to Gulf Gate to learn more about our English Second Language program.
- Save the Date info: Grade 5 Musical is on Thursday, December 14th.
