From the Principal Lunenburg/Gilman
Welcome to Lunenburg Schools!
Welcome to a brand-new school year! I am very excited to begin my fourth year as the Principal of the Lunenburg & Gilman Schools. I am pleased to be a part of this community where I get the honor of watching your children learn and grow into responsible young people. In order to be successful with the work that we do at school, your partnership is an invaluable piece in the puzzle. There are so many components in the development of well-rounded citizens; we are only stronger with your support, and we thank you for it.
We are looking forward to working with the Tarrant Institute this year as we delve into Place-Based Learning at the middle school. Students will also be honing their Personal Learning Plans which they will share with you during their student-led conferences.
Several teachers have had the wonderful opportunity of training at the Teachers College in the areas of writing and phonics instruction. This will be our second year implementing the Units of Study curriculum. We will host our Literacy Night in October. Please plan on attending as we will demonstrate a lesson and you can see first hand how your child progresses through the many layers of the writing process.

Principal's Friday Focus
Dear Parents, Guardians and Families of the Concord and Gilman community, The Kingdom East School Board is reviewing a report about the Gilman School, and the potential for merging 6th – 8th grade of Gilman and Concord. Many of you shared input at the meetings last spring, summer, and then some folks also shared input this past fall. Tomorrow the Report will be shared with the Kingdom East Board, and there will be a month to ask questions, review and the board will vote in May. I wanted to provide you with a link to the report and the meeting information.
