Welcome to Carlos Gilbert Elementary School!

Our school is as unique as the city of Santa Fe itself. With our location downtown, we are able to provide our students with an abundant cultural and educational experiences unique to Santa Fe. Our school population is reflective of that diversity consisting of Hispanic, Anglo, Native American, Asian, African-American and Pacific Islanders in a small population of just over 330 students. We offer a rigorous academic curriculum, and encourage students to be involved in extracurricular activities, during school and after school, including band, choir, cello, girls and boys basketball, wrestling, cheer leading, swimming, and Girls on the Run. We are fortunate to offer Chess Club, Young Astronauts Club, Scripps National Spelling Bee and Geography Bee. Aspire after school learning program offers child care until 5:30 p.m. Our dedicated Parents, Teachers, Kids (PTK) organization, fund raises to pay for grade level enrichment programs such as: National Dance Institute (NDI), yoga, acting, and cooking classes. We also have a cadre of volunteers who donate their time regularly to enhance learning for students. Educating the future leaders of the world!

Remote Learning

Hello Blackhawk families!

On Monday, we will begin our remote learning!  Our teachers are excited and prepared to resume teaching and will support you through this endeavor.  

Here are the basics about how the remote learning will work. This is new for all of us and we will make necessary adjustments along the way.

How will remote learning work?
Teachers will post assignments in Open Access, which your student can access through their One Login. 

But what the heck is Open Access? And what is their One Login??
We created the video below to help answer questions about logging in and finding Open Access.  This will walk you through the process.

How long will it take my child to complete their work each day?
Teachers will let you know what they expect regarding daily time on task, which will depend on your child's age and abilities.  

Please email teachers with any class-specific questions or needs regarding your child's iPad or Chromebook.  

Also, feel free to email me if you have questions or concerns.
Right now we are concentrating on launching online learning. We will update you on the following important items when we have more information:
   * Registration for the 2020-21 school year
   * Student Profile Sheets
   * Aftercare registration for next year
   * Yearbook distribution
As a Blackhawk family, we will pull together and rise to this challenge, because we are Blackhawk Strong!  
Stay well and we will see you online Monday!
