Principal's Message

Andrea McKinney

Principal of Gordon Elementary School
Welcome to Gordon Elementary School! We are very excited about the 2023-2024 school year. Here at Gordon School our highly qualified staff is dedicated to the social emotional health and academic achievement for all our students while creating a warm, safe environment for learning. Our mission is to provide an environment where staff & students discover their strengths, advocate for others, reach their academic & personal potential, and embrace learning at your pace.  
We believe that a student’s elementary school experience is the foundation for life-long learning which is enhanced through showing up every day. We realize some absences are unavoidable due to health problems or other circumstances. But we also know that when students miss too much school regardless of the reason it can cause them to fall behind academically. Absences can add up quickly. Students are less likely to succeed academically if they miss 10% or more of instructional days over the course of the school year, this means missing about two days of school per month or about 17 days per year. 
We want your child to be successful in school. Let us know how we can best support you and your child so that he or she shows up for school on time every day. If you have any questions or need more information, please contact our office staff with any questions at 708-388-7202.
