Today, the Gulf Shores Elementary school family celebrated being named a Leader in Me Lighthouse School! There are over 7,000 Leader in Me schools all over the world and today Gulf Shores Elementary joined the small percentage of those schools who have been named Lighthouse Schools. This recognition is evidence that the school has produced outstanding results in school and student outcomes, and because of the extraordinary impact the school is having on staff, students, parents, and the greater community. Leader in me is designed to build resilience and leadership in students, create a high trust culture, and help improve academic achievement. With Leader in Me, students learn to become self-aware, interdependent, take initiative, plan ahead, set and track goals, prioritize their time, be considerate of others, communicate effectively, resolve conflicts, find creative solutions, value differences, live a balanced life, and contribute to society. Our faculty/staff, students, and families have worked very hard to meet this status, and we are so proud of our entire school family. We look forward to continuing to move forward to continue instilling and honoring the greatness in others.

We are excited to announce that Returning Student Registration for the 2024-2025 school year is now available!  Gulf Shores City School System has seen tremendous growth and we anticipate continued growth for 2024-2025. To assist us in preparing for the upcoming school year, we are opening returning student registration early and asking that you complete a review of your child’s information by May 17.  Completing by May 17, 2024 will ensure your child's schedule and/or room assignment is processed in a timely manner.

We know your time is valuable, so we are simplifying the returning student registration process.  This year you will use the PowerSchool Parent Portal to access Returning Student Registration. Simply log into the PowerSchool Parent Portal online at https://gulfshorescs.powerschool.com/public/home.html or use the PowerSchool app and select “Returning Student Registration” on the left side of the screen. Review your child’s information and submit. 

All returning students for the 2024-2025 school year are required to provide THREE Proofs of Residency. To expedite your child's enrollment for the 24-25 school year, please ensure that you have the THREE proofs of residency documents on hand when you begin returning student registration.  Returning student registration will not be considered complete and will not be processed without the THREE required proofs of residency.  See below for proof of residency documentation requirements.

Three Proof of Residency Requirements:

  • Current (Document 1 required): valid lease, mortgage statement, deed, settlement statement, or property tax notice.
  • Current from the following (select 2): utility bills, correspondence from a government agency such as a current social security statement, SNAP, Federal income tax return with address, Medicare/Medicaid, etc., or pay stub with address. (Cell phone bills and driver licenses are not accepted as proof of residency.)  Two from this list required.
