It is a pleasure to welcome you to Gilbert Elementary School! I am your GES Parent Liaison, Kim Patterson. The Parent Liaison is a full-time staff member who works to connect home and school by getting you the information and support you need to help in your child’s education.
I know the challenges families face. I have a 5th grader at Gilbert Elementary and a 7th grader at Gilbert Middle School. I want to make sure you know how important you are to your child’s success in school and empower you to help your child by providing family-friendly information, training, and communication assistance.
Sometimes, parents are not comfortable asking questions or sharing concerns with teachers or administrators. I am your link to the school and will work directly with you to make school interactions as welcoming and positive as possible. Do you have concerns about your child’s grades or behavior in class? Are you worried about your child’s temper or shyness? Are you having trouble getting your child to school on time each day? I’m here to help! These are just a few examples of the needs you may have as a parent.
I also run the GES Family Center and look forward to getting to know you and your family!
