Homecoming Parade- September 29th

All Gardner School students are encouraged to join us to ride on our homecoming parade float. Our float will be across the street from the Walsenburg library waiting for the kids to join us at 12:45. All float riders are asked to wear purple or green (Walsenburg and Gardner colors). Following the parade, please be at the community center to pick up your children. If the weather is rainy, we will know by noon if the parade will be canceled, but we really hope that you’ll join us and it will be a sunny day!

Free Dental Clinic and Free Sports’ Physicals

There will be a free dental clinic for anyone in need on October 13 and 14. See the link below:


Free sport’s physicals are available at the Spanish Peaks Outreach Clinic:  Wednesday August 2nd and Thursday August 3rd- 9am to 3pm,  appointment required.  Only 100 slots available.  Parent or Guardian must accompany children during physical.




We are looking for parents to organize PTA monthly meetings, to be elected officials and to volunteer as room parents. Please contact the Gardner Schoo if you could commit to this fun volunteer act.


Hey there Friends of the Gardner School:
Sandy from the CO library League is returning for one last round. If we get a lot of worker bees I think we can have an amazing looking and organized library by the time we open our doors in early August. The three work days will be June 29, June 30 and July 10. We would appreciate you helping for an hour or two or a day or two. Thanks so much!
Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks, Pam
