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.
