Message from the Principal

Dear GAMP Families,

It is with great pleasure and excitement that I introduce myself to you, as I will be serving as your Interim Principal for the 2023-2024 school year. It is my goal to make this year very successful for the entire school community. This year marks my 35th year with the School District of Philadelphia and my 18th year serving as a principal. I am a highly passionate educator and a music lover. I was a music student myself, and so I have a great passion for the program here at GAMP.

Just a few things that you should know as we start this school year.
1. My door is always open, and I make myself available to parents for questions and concerns. The best way to reach me is email. If you want scheduled time with me, please email me with dates and times and I will do my best to accommodate you.
2. It is important to me that there is open communication between you and our staff here at GAMP. All concerns regarding student progress or grades should be directed to your child’s teacher. If you do not get a response or need something further, please reach out to me.
3. Daily attendance is extremely important to the success of your child. If your child is absent, please send them in with a note so their absence can be coded correctly.
4. Please put September 21st from 5-7 on your calendars for Back to School Night. I am excited to meet you on that night!

I also commit to sending out weekly RoboCalls to keep you informed of all the things that are going on at GAMP. If you have changed your email address and/or phone number, please let the main office know so we can get you these communications. Again, my door is always open and I look forward to getting to know you. Please do not hesitate to call or email with any questions or concerns you may have.

Joanne Beaver, Principal
