Annual One Room Schoolhouse Day

Gardner School’s One Room Schoolhouse Celebration will be on November 15th. Students are asked to dress in costumes from the 1900’s. The students are reassigned to classes of mixed grades to reflect a one-room school classroom. Each of the seven classrooms will have the same lesson plans to follow on the day of the celebration. To honor the Spring Fire event our theme of study for the day will be Wildfires: Their Impact and Onward to Renewal. We encourage Gardner School Families and all community members to join us for this very special event!

End of Quarter Parent-Teacher Conferences

On Thursday, October 18, the students will be excused at 3:00 and conferences will run from 3:00-7:00 PM. Each parent was sent home a conference appointment time. We appreciate that the majority were returned the next day. We have not heard from some of you. Please, return the appointment acceptance or phone the school to reschedule your time. Our goal is to visit with 100% of the Gardner School families. See you then!
