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!

People Actively Listening to Students (Read) PALS

We will begin PALS soon and I intend on holding an informational meeting (cookies and tea) at the Gardner School on September 27 at 3:00 PM. The first day of PALS will commence on October 2. It will then be each Tuesday through April. PALS will run from 2:45-3:45. If you would like to become a member of PALS, but don’t know much about the program, come by on the 27th. 

Thanks, volunteers!

Nature Day on the Huerfano River, San Isabel National Forest

This Friday, September 14, will be a school day. We will have an all-school day of nature, making crafts, hunting for animal tracks, a nature scavenger hunt, hiking and more. The event will take place at the Upper Huerfano Campgrounds. Volunteers are more than welcome to join us! We could use your help.

The buses will go to the campgrounds around 9:00 AM. We will spend the day with activities and have a picnic lunch. When we get back to Gardner by 3:00 the buses will take the Walsenburg students back to Peakview. PARENTS, you will need to be at the school by 3:45 on Friday since your children will be transported home.

Back to School Night- Spaghetti Dinner

This Thursday, August 30th at 5:00 PM our staff will host a BACK TO SCHOOL event. From 5:00-530 will be a Meet and Greet, a short message from Principal Pam and an invitation to learn more about Gardner School’s intentions to become a charter school beginning the school year of 2020-2021.

From 5:30-6:00 we will serve a free spaghetti dinner for all to enjoy, followed by a fun event and then time to meet with teachers. We truly hope that everyone will join us.

For your convenience, we will entertain Walsenburg children until 5:00 so that you do not need to arrive early. A permission to stay will be sent home Monday.
