Happy Easter

Gwynne Staff would like to wish everyone a Happy Easter!  See you on April 22nd!

Gwynne Family Fun Night

Nothing like a good old spaghetti western to bring people together . Toss in a live entertainment , a wonderful meal , pony rides for the kids, a great silent auction and viola;  you have an evening filled with  great camaraderie and laughs. For years, the Gwynne parent council has hosted this wonderful family oriented event in support of the educational efforts occurring at Gwynne school . Parents and students alike look forward to this event each year. Family fun night is a time to come together, celebrate our community, and make a difference for the students at Gwynne School .Many thanks go out to the Gwynne parent council, the local businesses who donate each year, and to the school community for making this night a great success. Can’t wait till next year!
