It is very important for your student to be at school on time each and every day.  Classroom doors open at 9:00 and it is essential they are getting to class before 9:10.  This allows time for them to transition into their day, put away their coat and backpack, turn in papers, check in with the teacher and say “hi” to their friends.



If your child is sick or for some reason unable to attend school, PLEASE call the office and inform them.  503.256.6531




Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS): School Wide Behavioral Expectations
Gilbert Park Elementary is a participating school within the PBIS Network. PBIS supports schools, districts, and states in building system capacity for implementing a multi-tiered approach to social, emotional and behavior support. The broad purpose of PBIS is to improve the effectiveness, efficiency and equity of schools and other agencies. PBIS improves social, emotional and academic outcomes for all students, including students with disabilities and students from underrepresented groups. Within Gilbert Park Elementary, we utilize a 3 pillar approach in teaching students school-wide behavioral expectations: Be Safe, Be Responsible, and Be Respectful.
The Gilbert Park staff know that some students may experience struggles with acquiring the needed skills to meet PBIS behavioral expectations. If you or a family member believe that a student is experiencing behavioral struggles within the school setting, contact our PBIS team by completing this Behavior Request for Assistance. A team member will contact you within 3 school days.
