Principal's Message

Welcome to Gettysburg Elementary School!  It is my pleasure to lead such an amazing group of teachers and students.  The words that most accurately describe what we are trying to accomplish are below in our Learning Manifesto.  

Believe in yourself.  You are a learning machine.  With time and hard work you can get better at anything.  Try new things.  Take risks.  Make mistakes.  Fall down and get back up.  Ask questions.  Embrace the pressure.  Feel the fear, and dare greatly.  Speak up.  Bust out of your comfort zone.  Always remember that getting better is not pretty.  That you are going to be bad first.  That growth comes from struggle.  That skills are built, not born-and they are yours if you earn them.  Seek out challenges.  Appreciate obstacles. Learn like a scientist.  Love the journey!
