Welcome to the desk of the Principal!

Welcome to our web site.  I am so glad you are interested in Joe M. Gillmore Elementary.  It really is a great place to learn.  I am proud to be associated with this school, our faculty and staff, and the families we serve.  We work hard to provide a firm foundation for the education of all of our students.

The 2014- 2015 school year will provide many challenges for us as we anticipate the construction of our new building. I ask for your patience with us as we face these challenges. I look forward to the day when boys and girls will attend a brand new Joe M. Gillmore Elementary School. I want to thank Superintendent Larry Bagley, the Clarke County Board of Education, and the Mayor and City Council for making our dream of a new school become a reality.

Please take some time to learn more about our school.  If you have any suggestions about our web site or any unanswered questions, please feel free to contact me.  I value your input and will be happy to assist you.
