Dear Parents and Guardians:

Welcome to Gilpin Elementary School. Our staff is excited and enthusiastic for the new school year. We are dedicated to meeting the needs of our students and helping each student reach his/her potential.

I am passionate about education and I look forward to partnering with you to provide our students with a rigorous, engaging, and high-quality elementary experience. I understand the importance of education and how valuable it is to have a strong connection between home and school. Parents are every child’s first teacher and I believe that by working together, we can ensure that your child’s social, emotional, and academic needs are met.

As part of our Gilpin community, we invite you to be an active member of your child’s education. Whether you are a classroom volunteer, a member of the PTA, or a special event helper we encourage you to get involved! Research clearly demonstrates that parent participation in their child’s school coincides with a greater likelihood of academic success.

We are going paperless as much as possible and it is important for us to keep you “Gilpin informed”. Many school documents are available on our district website at Please use our website as much as possible. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or me at anytime throughout the school year.

I believe that great schools make decisions based on what is best for kids. We are in the business of educating children. Our great teachers are prepared for a fantastic school year. Great schools provide a safe environment where students and staff feel empowered to own their learning and take risks. I will be asking for parental support with academic and behavioral concerns to ensure that every child has the support necessary for success.
