At Gillispie, we think of our alumni often.  We think of the bright, engaged students of our past when we watch the wonder on the faces of our current students as they engage in Gillispie traditions, learn about the world, and share their joy for learning with us.

We also think of the families that have built this School.  The mothers, fathers, and grandparents who volunteered thousands of hours, who donated to our Annual Giving Drive and Annual Gala to make sure a Gillispie education was possible for everyone and contributed to the campaigns that built our Elementary building, our Field of Dreams, and our Gillispie Endowment for Excellence in Teaching. Your contributions to this community endure.  Gillispie is forever.

Want to volunteer?

We are only as strong as our alumni volunteers when it comes to keeping in touch! We are always recruiting alumni ambassadors in each class to help keep the Gillispie connection. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Jill McIntyre Kelly or sign up on our Volunteer form.

Stay in Touch

We encourage our families to keep in touch by updating their contact information, submitting exciting news about their lives, and attending an alumni event.

Alumni Events

We welcome alumni back to campus each year to our Annual Art Day and Ice Cream Social, held in June each year.  Check back for more information as the date approaches!
