Frank W. Gavlak School is a grade K-6 building. It currently has an approximate enrollment of 449 students with one full day kindergarten, one grade one, one grade two, two grade threes, four grade fours, four grade fives and four grade sixes. Various programs are offered to meet the needs of students. Among them are: basic skills remediation, speech, special education services, bi-lingual/ESL education, gifted and talented and guidance services.
As the 2017-2018 school-year quickly comes to an end, I would like to thank everyone for their on-going support of our school programs and initiatives. When the elementary schools work together as a team with our parents and community members, it is our children who reap the educational benefits and grow both academically and socially from these efforts.
June events for our students will include: the "Student Council Talent Show" on June 6th at Gavlak School at 6:30 pm, the "6th Grade Class Transition Ceremony" at Wallington High School on June 21st at 2:00 pm, our annual "Honor Roll Breakfast" at Gavlak on June 22nd and our Kindergarten students will have their "Graduation Event" at Gavlak on June 25th at 9:15 am. Please be aware that students will be dismissed on a half day schedule on June 21st, June 22nd and June 25th, the last day of school.
Our students have worked hard this year and are ready to spend time with their families and friends for a well-earned summer vacation. On behalf of the staff and administration at the Wallington Elementary Schools, please have a fun, enjoyable and safe summer vacation, and we will see you in September!
