Welcome to Gadsden Elementary School’s Website!
I am Cecilia Arvizo, the proud Principal for Gadsden Elementary School (GES) and want to welcome you to our outstanding school. I have been in education for twenty-nine years and I feel honored and privileged to have the opportunity to work with outstanding educators, students, parents, district, and community! Living and teaching in the community has provided me with a wealth of experiences and opportunities which I will rely upon as I serve my Gadsden family.
Sharing the common goal of student success is what motivates GES teachers, staff and I to do our personal best to meet every child’s educational and personal goals to become an outstanding member of society. We are committed to the achievement of every student in a safe learning environment. We take pride in the education of our students. Our ultimate mission is to ensure our students succeed in our community and in a global society by preparing them to be life-long learners, college and career ready.
Our school motto that we live by is “Dream, Believe, and Achieve!” Our staff, students, parents and community believe in the endless possibilities for our students which are why we empower our students through their talents via extra-curricular activities that include: GES band, Girls Who Code, ACT class, robotics, music, technology, media, gifted, PE, science fair, science clubs, intramurals and more. Technology based learning for all students is our common practice at GES. We strive to prepare our Panther students with tools to persevere in life and in the world. Pursuing and reaching student academic and social success for our students is our priority.
I thank you in advance for all your support, dedication and commitment to our students. Together we can make great things happen at GES. We are making a difference in our students’ lives.
Cecilia Arvizo
