Welcome to 5th Grade with Mr. Gillgren at Kilby Shores Elementary!

I am so excited to be with my new family at Kilby Shores Elementary this year.  For those who do not know me, I have been teaching in Suffolk at Forest Glen Middle School for 12 years.  I so excited about this year, because this will be my first year teaching in elementary school!   I have enjoyed teaching Math and Science for years (15 in all), and look forward to being able to use my experience at Kilby Shores this year.  My goal is to be accessible and meet the needs of each of my students personally this year.  I will work hard towards this end and ask that if you have concerns this year that you please make them know to me.  

Again,  I am excited to be with my new family at Kilby Shores Elementary and I look forward to working along side of the best faculty, staff, and parents that Suffolk has to offer!




SPS School board policy allows students 5 days to complete school work once they return from an absence. Due to the unusually large amount of late and missing work from students this policy will be strictly adhered to. Therefore, please encourage your child to complete work and turn it in on time. Also due to the large volume of late work, students who turn in assignments late will have 10 point deducted per day for late work.
