Dear Gubser Families,

Hello!  I hope this letter finds you enjoying a summer filled with fun times for your family.  I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you all to Gubser Elementary for the 2015-2016 school year! The Gubser Staff is very excited to have students and the community back at school this fall.  Personally, I am really glad to be starting my second year here at Gubser.

 Please note that we will have new bell times this year.  Doors will open at 8:55 for students eating breakfast and 9:10 for all other students.  School begins at 9:25 and dismissal will be at 3:40.

 We have some new staff members who are excited to join the Gubser Team:

Hannah Seagren, 3rd Grade, Roy Rhines, PE, Cheryl Lyons, 4th (in for two months for Melissa Frank), Holly Jones, Instructional Coach, Vanessa Ritz, 1st Grade, Jennifer Sader, Kinder IA, Laurel Epperly, LRC IA, Pat Huffman, ERC IA, Miguel Campos, Orchestra                

Due to the outstanding fiscal support of our community during the 2008 school bond, over the summer Gubser received new cold water pipes, new doors, new windows, new restroom sinks and some new walls in our computer labs.  Now that construction has wrapped up, our staff is working hard to be ready for the students to return.  We know that you will continue to support the school in many ways and your support is very much appreciated.  It is only in partnership with you that we can effectively educate our community’s children.  I am always amazed and appreciative of the many ways you support our school.

I would like to invite you to join us for our Open House September 8, 4:30-6 PM.  All Keizer elementary schools are posting class lists inside during Open House night and during the first week of school to ensure student privacy and safety.  Please remember that we will not be changing room assignments that evening or during the first ten days of school, which is a practice common to all schools. 

 We look forward to the upcoming year and we look forward to seeing you soon!
