New CGE Parents

Welcome to Carlos Gilbert Elementary School!  Coming to a new school can be confusing.  You'll find information below to help you adjust the culture and community of Carlos Gilbert.


  • Just for Kinders - If your child is starting Kindergarten, then you'll want a few additional bits of information you can find on our "Just for Kinders" page.  
  • Parent Handbook - Please read the Carlos Gilbert Elementary Parent Handbook for information regarding school and district policies, classroom information and general guidelines. Please let the PTK know if there is information that you feel should be in here. 
  • Communications
    • Thursday Envelope - Every Thursday you'll be getting a manilla envelope from their classroom teacher that contains important information about the school, your child's class and your child. Thursday Envelopes also contain homework, field trip permission slips, and classroom work your child did for you to marvel at.
    • CGPTK Emails - The Carlos Gilbert PTK sends emails (a.k.a. "E-Blasts") out every Tuesday at 2:00 pm. These emails will contain reminders about upcoming events, requests for volunteers and news. To begin receiving these emails sign up here!
Still have questions, or not really sure where to go?  Ask the PTK!  We're here to support you and your child as you begin your journey here at Carlos Gilbert Elementary, where a great school is a community project.
