GES Vision Statement:

We believe our students at Gunpowder Elementary should learn in a rigorous, responsive, and safe learning environment where culture and diversity are recognized, accommodated, valued, and respected.  Our teaching staff will demonstrate high expectations for all learners.  We will promote a learning environment that is driven by interest, ability, and learning style to meet the strengths and needs of our learners.  Families are recognized as partners in the learning process.  We embrace communication between and among staff and community as we work to create the best learning opportunities for all students. 

GES Mission Statement:

Our Gunpowder Family strives each day to inspire one another to become more virtuous and conscious, honoring each other's dignity, anchored in love, and guided by hope for our children's future.  Ensuring that each member of our family feels safe and loved will allow adults and students to develop into creative and critical thinkers, effective communicators, peaceful problem solvers, and confident, authentic human beings.
