Welcome to Gate City Elementary School!

My name is Shantel Delonas, and I joined the Grizzly family in 2019 proudly serving as principal. Prior to my post at Gate City, I served as a classroom teacher at Greenacres Elementary School and then as Principal at the Lincoln Early Learning Center. My passion has always been to meet learners where they are in their learning to help them grow and build self-confidence. I have a love for life-long learning and know there is always room to learn and grow. 

At Gate City Elementary School, we are a community of educators, families and patrons collectively working together towards a common purpose to empower learners to be kind, inclusive of others, to problem solve and persevere through challenging learning experiences with adult support. We want learners to develop self-confidence and a growth mindset through active engagement in the learning process. We are dedicated to our mission: 

Learning today for the possibilities of tomorrow. 

It is my ultimate goal to provide learners, their families and the community with a positive learning experience in a caring and rigorous learning environment through researched based instructional practices and positive relationships. 

We love our Grizzlies. Let's go red and blue! We've got that Grizzly PRIDE.
