Welcome Gullett Gators!
Hello Gullett families. Welcome to another exciting school year. There are many things to be excited about here at Gullett Elementary. We continue to be the fastest growing elementary school in Manatee County with almost 1200 students and growing. With this growth, we have many new faces on campus that bring a passion for teaching and working with students. We have expanded our campus by adding a new building last school year and recently completed a new playground addition for our students to enjoy!
The 18-19 school year proved to another successful time in Gullett’s history. We finished in the top 3 performing elementary schools in all of Manatee County, earning another A for our FSA school grade. We are very proud of these achievements, but we are even more proud of the progress we see with students as they develop good character. It is important that we focus on the whole child to help promote and grow good citizens in our community! This year, our teachers will be incorporating Morning Meetings in their daily routines where students will be engaged in discussion, greeting one another, and developing social skills to build positive momentum for each day. Our teachers will also be focusing on leadership by infusing the 7 Habits of Highly Successful People into their daily lessons. Students will be focusing on Being Proactive, Synergizing, and Thinking Win-Win. As we continue to grow with both academics and leadership, we will surely see continued success for the entire school!
Finally, our school would not be where we are today without the continued support of the parents and families. We encourage you to get involved in any way possible. We have a great PTO that works to support our teachers and students, we have a very involved SAC that helps oversee the school policies, and much more. We even have a special group just for our dads – the WATCH DOGS program. DOGS, or DADS OF GREAT STUDENTS has been in place for a few years now and we are seeing more and more dads volunteer for the day to work alongside our staff to assist kids. Each one of the dads leaves with a great appreciation and always sign up to return! Thank you to everyone for what you do to help our school!
