Local Businesses Helping Gilchrist Elementary
We appreciate all the support we receive from our community. We wouldn't be able to provide our students with an exceptional education if it wasn't for you.
The school year began with an onsite clinic provided by COSTCO offering flu shots to our staff. Keeping our staff healthy is a top priority. School supplies
were provided from Chick-Fil-A and K-Mc Sports Foundation. We have also been awarded a $250 grant by the Walmart Community Giving Program to support our
STEM program and we look forward to working with Target and Prime Meridian Bank during our upcoming Scholastic Book Fair in September.
Please see our Partners For Excellence page on how you to can be a partner with Gilchrist Elementary or contact
