Weekly News Blast for the Week of September 9, 2019
Welcome to the 2019-20 School Year
At Gilles-Sweet Elementary School, we are committed to providing a safe, positive, quality learning community through collaboration, high expectations, and respect. Communication is a key component to an excellent school environment. We encourage you to communicate regularly with your child's teacher via phone calls, emails, or in writing. This year we will be using SeeSaw  as our main classroom communication tool . Detailed information will be presented at our Meet the Teacher nights. It is important to notify your child's teacher and office of any changes that occur in the home that may have an impact on your child at school.  Please notify the office of any changes in address, emergency contacts, and phone (work, home, and cell) numbers. Working together, we are confident that we will achieve a safe, nurturing educational setting that fosters learning and personal growth.   

PLEASE be patient and continue to follow all safety rules of dropping off and picking up your child. 

Thank you!

Mrs. Brady, Principal 
Mr. Krivak,  Associate Principal
Together we made it happen!
The first two days of school were amazing! We could not have achieved such success without the help of parents, the Fairview Park Police Department, city and school administrators, and of course the dedicated staff at Gilles-Sweet Elementary School. Our students were able to get to their classrooms safely thanks to everyone coming together as a community. Thank you! 
Reminder for bus riders
Kindergarten students begin on Monday and will be joining the bus routes. This will cause a delay in bus drop-off times in the afternoon for the first few days. Please be patient as we welcome our newest friends safely to school!
