Dear Gilpin Parents,
As the end of the school year approaches, I want to remind you of our End-of-Year Barbecue on Thursday, May 24th from after school until 5:30 p.m. or whenever the food runs out. Every year we have a great turnout. It is a good time to meet a few other parents, talk with the staff and watch me grill the burgers and hot dogs.
If you would like to donate to our non-profit organization, Friends of Gilpin, the barbecue would be a good time to do so. We do not charge anyone for the food at the barbecue, but funding for this event will run out after the next school year. Let’s make sure we can keep this event going from now on.
I attended a Curtis Park neighborhood meeting. This organization is very supportive of our school, our turnaround, and our neighborhood activities. It was great to see so many strong supporters of the work we do at Gilpin.
I want to thank each of you that has participated, volunteered, and supported Gilpin Montessori Public School this year. We are a better school because of your help, and because of your support for the wonderful Montessori teaching that goes on in each of our classrooms each day. Have a great summer.
Please join us for our end-of-year barbecue to celebrate a great school year and kick off a fun summer on Thursday, May 24 from after school until 5:30 p.m., or when the food runs out, on the Gilpin playground! We hope to see you!
