Gillispie is proud to partner with the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego and North County Food Banks to sponsor a Food Drive this April 21-23.

Sometimes, in the course of teaching my different subjects to different grade levels, I’ll suddenly realize that two totally different areas of study are simultaneously touching upon the same underlying science concept. I guess it’s possible that I’m unconsciously guiding these convergences, but I nevertheless marvel a little bit at the crossing of content strands. Currently, not two, but three such strands are crossing, as 2nd, 5th, and 6th graders all arrive at the idea of...

Students in Grade 4-6 recently had a virtual visit from author Megan Freeman! Students were able to ask the author questions via zoom and discuss her newly-released novel, Alone.  Their written reflections of the book are on display now at Warwick's alongside Freeman's signed copies. "This book has depth and perception. It gives you a look at how different situations affect different people. It was magisterial and very involving," reads one student's passage. Pretty cool!...

Thanks to the generosity of our amazing families, the Gillispie Toy Drive was a tremendous success! We filled 11 large boxes and two large bags with the donations you so lovingly brought in, and the handmade cards and gift tags were so meaningful. All of these items are being transported to an orphanage in Tijuana which serves infants, children, and teens up to age 18. Your giving spirit is changing lives! Thank you to the Community Relations...

Dear Parents, Although this year has presented us with many challenges, I think we can all agree that we are very blessed to have this community.
