Principal's Message

Welcome to Gerald McShane Elementary School. Our team of caring and committed faculty and staff welcome your children and work hard to provide them with a compassionate, inclusive and supportive learning environment in which they are given the opportunity to learn, grow, play and develop into knowledgeable, curious, innovative and inquisitive young people. We also strive to help every student reach their full potential, but the reality is that one cannot be certain what children can do until we challenge them to be at their best.

At GMS, students will be challenged to work hard, to learn from failure, and to adopt a mindset that on-going effort is the key ingredient to success in school and in life. To achieve these goals, we are required to build meaningful relationships. Education is all about relationships, and at GMS, you will find a community of education professionals who are excited to build those meaningful relationships with you and your children. We are always happy to celebrate the many beautiful gifts our school has to offer – the most important one being the wonderful families that make up our Gerald McShane School family. I look forward to working with all of you this year, to help your children reach their full potential.
