This is the last week before Christmas, and there are lots of events for the kids and staff. Please look at the bottom of this post for more information. I would like to take this time to wish you and your family a wonderful Christmas break and hope that you have a Happy New Year. Gilmer Elementary has had a wonderful end to the 2012 year, and our students have done wonderful projects to demonstrate their learning and compassion for the community that supports them so much. In short 2012 has been a fantastic year.
Thank you for your continued support and partnership in your child's learning. Last, we wish good luck to our Buckeyes in the state championship game on Friday.
