Welcome to school year 2020-21. It will be a year like no other. Please know that your child's safety and that of our faculty and staff are our top priority. During these uncertain times, I hope you will check back here often for distance learning information, important announcements, and other great resources for you and your children. I also encourage you to join our Gilchrist Listserv so you will receive the latest news right away. Our school community is here for our students and their families. Scotty Crowe, Principal

As the first nine weeks comes to a close, Assistant Superintendent Gillian Gregory led a presentation in front of the Leon County School Board, providing members with updates after using the new hybrid learning model. This video features excerpts from the presentation, which featured feedback from nine teachers selected from throughout the district.
A native of Nairobi-Kenya, and a longtime teacher at Kate Sullivan Elementary School, Mr. Amon Rwito is multi-lingual—literally and figuratively—since he is fluent in five languages. He also strives to inspire a love for curiosity and discovery through the language of his favorite subject—science. Mr. Rwito is equally skilled in the written word and is a published author of a children’s book. His multi-cultural, multi-subject-matter approach allows for an “exchange of ideas and knowledge with my students. It’s important to want to learn from one another. I learn from my students more than I think I teach them.” #ThankATeacher
