At Gilman Elementary School, students are learning about having good character. With the Thanksgiving season upon us, Gilman Elementary School wanted to connect the character traits we have learned and connect it to the season of Thanksgiving. In the name of the holiday there are two words, “Thanks” and “Giving.” Students have been reflecting on what they are thankful for and how to give to others in need. Within the last two weeks, students have been collecting items to be placed in Operation Christmas Child boxes to help those in need around the world. Students and families did an amazing job bringing in supplies to help those less fortunate. Over ten boxes were shipped to children across the world. Also, any supplies that were left over were given to local shelters within our communities. Gilman Elementary School would like to say thank you to all those families who gave to others in need. All these gifts will be greatly appreciated by children around the world and in our communities. Tis the season to be thankful and giving to others!

Mr. Corlett has collected some resources for families about the PARCC test. They can be found on his website at this link.
