Welcome to Gilkey Elementary

Important Schedule Change

Parent Teacher conferences originally scheduled for Friday, February 9, will now be held on Friday, February 16. As a result, Friday, February 16 will now be a half day for all three elementaries, the Middle School, and the High School. Renaissance High School will follow its regular calendar.

Parents do not need to reschedule their conferences. The times set for February 9 will carry over to February 16.

Gilkey Elementary School achieves educational success by ensuring that each student reaches their individual potential in academics, social interaction, creative endeavors, and physical activities. In partnership with parents, we teach and reinforce good character traits that will guide students for a lifetime.
