A Message from Principal Taylor

Welcome to 2021-22!

To parents, students, and the entire Edward Gideon Elementary School learning community.

I hope everyone had an enjoyable and safe summer break.  Welcome to the start of the 2021-2022 school year!  We are pleased to welcome returning and new families this school year.

As we plan for the start of the school year, our focus will still be to ensure that:  every child, every day is finding a way to feel connected, every child, every day is being challenged by new learnings and experiences, and every child, every day knows that they have a champion they can turn to.

The Covid-19 pandemic has challenged staff and students to find a new normal for learning, connected us in new ways and required our champions to champion from afar.  What I have most learned through this process is how much I appreciate the expertise our teachers bring to Gideon, the ways in which our students continue to work hard to grow and overall, appreciation for the little things in life – giving a high five, a hug or being able to laugh out loud with many people around.  What I MOST appreciate about Gideon is how even under circumstances we have never experienced we are still a learning and caring community.

Please ensure current student contact information is reviewed online through the SDP Parent Portal to ensure it is accurate and up to date.  This must be completed for all students returning to Gideon because the Parent Portal is where you can keep track of student attendance and academic progress.  You will need this account to make changes to your student’s demographic information throughout the year (ex. Parent email address or home phone number).
New Student Registration for all grades K-12 is OPEN!  Register one of 4 ways:  online, by phone, in-person or drop box. Learn more.

As we begin the school year, let us all re-commit ourselves to the understanding that student learning is everyone’s top priority.  Thank you, in advance, for all of the support that you demonstrate for your students and the entire Edward Gideon Elementary School Staff.  Please continue to refer to school websites for more information.

Sincerely,

Dr. Shauneille Taylor

Principal
