The schoolwide calendar at-a-glance
Below is the schoolwide calendar that is updated continuously.
This is the most up-to-date and complete calendar at any given time. Paper calendars are also popular, and the school will issue a full twelve-month calendar as the school year begins with all the major set-in-stone dates for the year. As new events are added, they will be announced in the Thursday Gordon News, added to the Google calendar, and included in a paper calendar update mailed to homes each month. A one-sheet preview of the 2023-2024 calendar is here.
It does not include athletics, or meetings that are not open to the entire community.
The athletics calendar is at www.gordonschool.org/athleticscalendar

What are the numbers on each date?
Gordon has an eight-day rotating schedule. The big numbers indicate each day’s place in the eight-day rotation.
Students and teachers will need these numbers! They are
less important for parents, but Early Childhood and Lower School students will need appropriate sneakers on days
when they have PE.
Veterans’ Day 2023
Gordon will be recognizing Veterans’ Day on Friday, November 10th, as is customary when a federal holiday falls on a Saturday. Note that, for unknown reasons, Providence public schools will have school that Friday and will be recognizing Veterans’ Day on Monday the 13th. This will be an issue for families that use the public bus, and those that have students both at Gordon and in Providence public schools.
No classes Friday, February 9th
Friday, February 9th will be a full day of staff and faculty development. Child care will be available 7:30am to 5:30pm.
After school theater rhythm
There are three seasons of after school theater and three productions: the Middle School play, the Middle School musical, and the third and fourth grade musical.
For many years, the two musicals have alternated between the winter and spring seasons.
This year, we will not be alternating. The Middle School musical will be in the winter, and the third and fourth grade musical will be in the spring, just as they were last year.
This repetition is necessary due to the timing of the eighth grade Civil Rights Trip. With the trip in April, it is impractical to have the Middle School musical in the spring.
