    Greetings James Gettys friends,
     
    I am beyond honored to be the new principal of James Gettys Elementary School. I come to you from Northwestern Pennsylvania and am so excited to immerse myself in the culture of the Gettysburg area. I am looking forward to getting to know each and every learner at this school and using my many years of experience in education to collaborate with all the staff and keep James Gettys at the top of their game!
     
    Please know that my door is always open and I welcome thoughts and input from all the stakeholders of this learning environment. I also believe that the greatest thing we can give our children is the gift of realizing that they can make mistakes in a safe environment and learn from each and every one of them so they can grow up as resilient life long learners. 
     
    Looking forward to a great year!
     
    Mrs. Lisa Royek

  • Backpack Program Partners with Community Aid: Sustainability

    The Gettysburg Area School District has agreed to partner with CommunityAid, a non-profit organization with a mission to help those most vulnerable in our local communities.

    Ruth's Harvest

    All proceeds earned from the bins on our campuses will be earmarked for the  Ruth's Harvest and Franklin Friends weekend meals programs in the District.  The District will receive a monthly donation, based on the number of clothing items collected in the bins.  Additionally, our needy students will be eligible to receive clothing care cards to shop at their Hanover or Mechanicsburg stores.

     

    Please consider making a clothing donation!  (If you have more donations than what will fit in the bin - we can make special arrangements with the CommunityAid organization so the District receives the financial credit.)
