    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    Hello to all my parents, students and community members!  I would like to begin by telling everyone how proud I am to be a Guyton Gator.  Each year we continue to move forward in large strides and improvements in all areas of academics with the Georgia Standards of Excellence.  My teachers and staff members work hard every day to meet various levels of our students.  Through dedication and hard work, our students are making the progress needed to be successful not only at school but in life.  

    Our school services students Pre-K through 5th grades.  The schedule supports uninterrupted instructional time in the core classes which include language arts, math, science and social studies, as well as including an intervention/extension (I/E) period for each grade level.  This schedule ensures time for remediation and lesson extensions for every child according to his/her needs.  The teachers at GES work together across grade levels to better differentiate instruction and push students beyond the norm.

    In coordination with our schedule, we are able to successfully incorporate the standards throughout the curriculum.  Teachers and administrators work collaboratively to continue to implement these standards through creative skill-specific lessons and use various assessments to monitor student progress. Our staff will be focusing on creating a positive climate that ensures your children success through our PBIS program which focuses on being safe, respectful and responsible. 

    As principal, I would like you to know that Guyton Elementary is not only a community school but a safe place for students to learn and grow.  We are a TEAM!! Everyone here is working together to make a difference in the lives of our children.  Here at GES we know that every child matters and every moment counts!
