Thank you, GPS!

This email was sent to the entire Gilbert Public Schools District by our Interim Superintendent, Dr. Suzanne Zentner.    She understands the importance of relationships in education and this email touched my heart!  I love the subject:  Passing of a Longtime Friend of GPS.   And she was always so supportive of all of us and she loved being with our Gilbert friends.

GPS Family,

It is with great sadness that I share the passing of Ms.Teresa Scott, mother of longtime GPS special education teacher, Judy Engel, great aunt of 4th grade teacher at Islands Elementary, Kerri Rogers, and aunt of current Governing Board President, Sheila Rogers.

For the past many years, Teresa opened up her home in Douglas to serve dinner to many students and their families from both Gilbert Elementary School and Islands Elementary School on their southeastern Arizona overnight field trip. She loved the fellowship and sharing the background of the home where she was born in 1922, along with history of the area.

A local service will be held in her honor on Saturday, July 29, at St. Mary's Basilica Church, 231 N 3rd St, Phoenix, AZ 85004at 10:00am.  

Additionally, a Mass will be held at St. Luke’s Catholic Church, 1211 E 15th St, Douglas, AZ 85607, on August 5 at 10:30am.followed by a burial service at Calvary Cemetery, 425 E 10th St, Douglas, AZ 85607.
