Water bottles: we are serious

It is very important that your child bring their water bottle to school each day. 

We are currently providing disposable cups for students who forget, and this does not align with our sustainability practices. 

After the fall weekend, we will not be providing disposable cups for students, so please add “water bottle” to your morning checklist. And write your child's name on the bottle!

Limited time shopportunity

Specialty gear stores are now open for Gordon’s fall athletics teams:
