Attention Parents and Guardians:
We want to make you aware of a social media challenge targeting children called the "Momo Challenge". The challenge began last year on Facebook and WhatsApp and has recently been found in YouTube videos. The videos feature a frightening looking avatar who asks its viewers to perform tasks and sends graphic or violent images.
As always student safety is our first priority and we want all parents to be aware of the challenge and ask you to monitor your children's use of social media and the Internet. We will be monitoring through our school filter and IT department at The Gilbert School.
We have included a link with more information. If you have any concerns please feel free to contact the school.
BUDGET MESSAGE - FISCAL YEAR 2020
To: Parents and Guardians of The Gilbert School
The Gilbert School's approved budget is fiscally responsible and affordable. The tuition for Winchester went down by $121,630 in 2016/2017, down another $388,561 in 2017/2018, flat in 2018/2019, and up $657,874 for 2019/2020. This is a net increase of $147,683 over four years and is totally attributable to our temporary reduction in our international student enrollment.
The budget has also seen reductions due to the contract we signed with the Receivers from the State Department of Education acting as the Winchester Board of Education. The recommended budget for Fiscal Year 201 7 was projected to be $8,250,605 and decreased to $7,371,782, down $878,823 for Fiscal year 2019 ( our current year). Our recommended budget for Fiscal Year 2020 is $7,818,609, up $446,827.
We did it again! The Gilbert School received a Silver Medal from U.S. News & World Report as one of the Best High Schools in the country! This is the second time we have received this honor.
According to U.S. News, "Top-ranked schools succeed in three main areas: exceeding expectations on state proficiency tests, offering challenging coursework and graduating their students."
