Gettysburg Family,

Welcome back to the 2021-2022 School year! This year our theme is Mission Possible: Making the Impossible, Possible. It is all about grit, endurance, hard work, and perseverance. Our team is committed to accomplishing our mission and we are very excited to have you on our team! 

Gettysburg Elementary has a long tradition of academic excellence.  Over the year, Gettysburg has been received many awards such as National Blue Ribbon School, State Distinguished School, Honor Roll, California Business for Education and Excellence, Bonner School of Character and PBIS “Platinum” School. 

We invite our parents and community to partner with us in our mission for excellence. I invite you to participate whenever possible. We believe that collaboration between parents, teachers, and community is the most effective way of getting students to reach their mission of academic and personal success.  

Please check with your child’s teacher, our office staff, or our Parent Club for information on how to stay involved in your child’s education Please consider getting involved with our Parent Teacher Club (PTC), School Site Council (SSC), English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC), Intercultural Diversity Advisory Committee (IDAC) or School Assessment and Review Team (SART).

At Gettysburg Elementary, student safety is of the upmost importance. Our staff believes that is our mission to provide an academically rigorous, yet safe learning environment. To ensure student safety, our school utilizes the Raptor Visitor Management System. All visitors required to check-in at our office when visiting the campus. The Raptor System allows us to screen visitors and volunteers in our schools to promote security on our campus. 

We work hard to communicate effectively with our students, families, and community. To stay as current with events and happenings at Gettysburg, please download the CUSD App for your smartphone or give us a follow on Instagram @gettysburg.generals.

We look forward to completing our mission together as a school and community. Please contact me if you should have any questions or concerns.

Go Generals!
