To culminate a months-long emergent project on poetry, Room 5 prekindergarten students invited their families to a "reading by the poets" yesterday afternoon. Below, Stella speaks clearly into the microphone in front of parents, administrators, and her fellow poets: Did you know? I'm going to a party in Boston It doesn't snow In San Diego I love my Mimi
This year's "gems" wouldn't be complete without recognition of Gillispie's dedicated and talented Board of Trustees. The Board is comprised of 18 community members and Gillispie parents who meet monthly and work tirelessly to oversee the financial and strategic vibrancy of the school.
Leaving the Board this week after years of service were Paul Barber, Elizabeth Oliver, Mike Reynolds, and Mike Stone. Joining the Board were Peter Arrowsmith, Kelly Kjos, Kristi Pfister, and Mike Ryan. Continuing their service on the Board are Rochelle Bold, Annette Bradbury, Don Carlson, Jack Chitayat, Mary Fee, Chris Freundt, Brianna Lichter, David Marino, Jennifer McIlvaine, Tina Nagle, Jeanie Scott, Alex Sun, Haeyoung Tang, and Gaylene Xanthopoulos.
