Administrators’ Message


Dear Gordon Greenwood Community, I would like to take this time to welcome everyone to the 2023/2024 school year at Gordon Greenwood Elementary. We know that during the school year, your child will discover and enjoy a rich and supportive learning environment.

As a school we have a common vision that is centered around students reaching their potential in an environment that is based around respect. Using these two values as a compass by which we conduct our daily activities at school, we have a common academic vision of improving the writing achievement of students at Gordon Greenwood with a focus on a balanced literacy program. As a school we emphasize elements of Writer’s Workshop to move our students’ writing achievement forward and small group reading instruction that is guided by common assessments throughout the year.

As families, students and staff, together, we create the school environment and a positive culture. Our school staff also recognizes students weekly who demonstrate the attributes of our nickname “G.E.C.K.O.”

The attributes are as follows:


G- great leadership 

E- empathetic

C– consistent effort

K- kindness to others

O- outstanding achievement


As parents and guardians, your support and partnership will help create a place of care for all our children. The trust between the home and school is foundational in creating a place where we believe in every one of our children to achieve their full potential.

It is my hope that our students, families and staff feel the warmth and care as we walk alongside our precious children.

Warmest regards,


Alan Joo
