Welcome to Gifford School!


August 2018


Greetings Gifford Families,

My name is Bill Ticha and I was recently named principal of Gifford K-8. Gifford is an amazing school, with a very prestigious reputation. I am very honored and humbled to join your team. The well-being and success of students, families, and staff will be my main priority.

Gifford continues to grow and change. One of the changes for this coming year is that the roles of our assistant principals have been slightly tweaked. Mr. Scott Campbell will be assigned to grades 6-8, Mr. Lewis Malczewski will have grades 3-5, and Ms. Heather Bennett is assigned to 4k-2nd grade. In addition to those changes, we are welcoming in many new staff members.

The school day hours are now 8:35am-3:41pm. Any adult who wishes to enter the building, should do so through the main office. For the safety of your child and all children, you may be asked to present an ID when checking your student out.

I look forward to seeing families on August 22nd from 8-12pm, 1-3pm, 4-6pm, for middle school schedule pick-up. Also, Open House is on August 30th. Because of our size, and to reduce traffic congestion, Open House will be broken up into two sections; A-K (last name) is from 4-6pm and L-Z will be from 6-8pm.


Thank you,


Bill Ticha
