Welcome to Gatesville Elementary School! We are a learning community of first, second and third graders, classroom teachers, and support teachers and staff who work together each and every day to become better readers, writers, mathematicians, and thinkers. On behalf of everyone at Gatesville Elementary School, I want to thank you for your continued support and encouragement throughout each school year. We look forward to sharing great times and great learning with you during this new school year!

As parents and community members you are critical partners in the education of our students. It may be a cliché, but it truly does take a village to educate a child. We appreciate and value the trust that parents have placed in our staff and we accept the responsibility of ensuring that all students graduate college and world ready. We are committed to developing in each student the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to ensure many paths to a successful future. Our number one priority will always be the success of every student.
