Dear Gard PK Families,
Welcome to the 2022 - 2023 school year!  We are thrilled to be back and are privileged to work with such an outstanding staff to make this a great year. Mrs. Sharon Johnson and I are excited to work closely with you to ensure the success and well being of all of our students. Some amazing changes have occurred over the summer with our building project. This will be our last year at the grand Avenue location as the new PK wing at Gard Elementary has started. 
There are still a lot of changes that will continue throughout the year and next summer, however the new building will look amazing when it is finally completed and ready to move into during the 2023-2024 school year.

We encourage families to stay connected and informed by following our district website for important updates and information regarding the school calendar, special events, and our building transformation.

We value our partnership with families as we navigate these challenging times together. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with questions or concerns. Stay safe!


Mrs. Lori Young, Principal
Mrs. Sharon Johnson, Assistant Principal
