Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!  I am so excited to get to know all of the children. I look forward to working with your child for I know it will be a year of challenge and growth. Below is our schedule for specials:


Monday: Library and Computer


Tuesday:     Gym


Wednesday: Gym and Music


Friday:         Art



        I have a few requests to make the school year run smoothly:

  • Please label everything you send to school, especially clothes, with your child’s name.

  • We love to celebrate birthdays with non-edible treats. Please do not send any food for birthdays.

  • Please provide your child with a pair of gym shoes to be left at school all year and worn only during gym class.  

  • Students should bring in water bottles to stay hydrated during the day.  Please fill them at home so there is not a long line at the water fountain.

  • The children will use a sock to cover the water bottle so it does not “sweat” on the desk and papers.

  • Please send a note or call the office if your child’s dismissal plans change.

  • Please check your child's folder for daily homework in the assignment notebook.

  • I look forward to seeing you at Curriculum Night on Wednesday, September 5.


Please visit my web page via the St. Gilbert website for additional information about our classroom. Once we get settled in with classroom routines and procedures, I will post a newsletter at our classroom site for you. If you have any questions please feel free to call me, send a note, or e-mail me at elizabeth.schapals@stgilbertschool.org.
