  • CURRICULUM NIGHT UPDATE - Thursday, September 20, 2018 at 6:30 PM: Please take note that this year we will follow a new format for our annual curriculum night. We are inviting all parents/guardians to first proceed to the gymnasium for an overview of school-wide information followed by meeting your child's teacher in their respective classrooms to get an overview of the curriculum. This will be a rather informal session and is not intended to be a Parent/Teacher Interview session. Certainly, if you have any questions or concerns about your child, please do feel free to contact the school at 651-7494. We are looking forward to seeing you here at the school for this important event in your child's school year.
  • SAVE THE DATES!: Our annual "Curriculum Night" will take place Thursday, September 20, 2018 at 6:30 PM. Also, our annual "Terry Fox Walk" - weather permitting - will take place Friday, September 21, 2018 with a 10:45 AM start. Stay tuned for details on both of these worthwhile events.

  • Gander Elementary is looking for volunteers for our Kids Eat Smart Breakfast Program and our new Library/Learning Commons area. If interested, please contact Ms. Naomi Young at 651-7494 or . An updated 'Certificate of Conduct' is required. Thank you very much for considering!
