  • Student Employment Opportunity

    We are looking for reliable, hardworking individuals to serve as health screeners for the winter season! Health screeners are primarily responsible for ensuring the safety of those entering the athletic facility by conducting a COVID-19-related health screening and enforcing safety policies and procedures. 

    Candidates must be 16+ years of age, must be able to work in a fast-paced environment, and must have the ability to work calmly and professionally in customer service situations.

    The ideal candidate will be able to clearly communicate, perform routine cleaning tasks, reliably complete assigned projects, and assist with screenings for winter sports and the Learn-to-Swim programs.

    We are looking for individuals to cover the Tuesday/Thursday shift from 5:30- 8:30 p.m. Health screeners may have the opportunity to work additional time for competitions and special events.

    This position provides customer service and operational support for the facility. The work is performed under the supervision and direction of the Program Coordinator and the health screener is expected to perform assigned duties without a need for significant work direction on daily tasks. The nature of the work performed requires the individual to establish and maintain effective working relationships with the supervisor, co-workers and the general public. The individual is expected to be available to work evenings as assigned.

    • Must be highly motivated and able to assume a positive and active role in the facility
    • Must have the ability to be firm with participants when necessary, enforce rules, and make sound decisions in order to secure the safety and well-being of all visitors, facilities and equipment

  • Final Reminder For The Seniors!

    Portraits & Statements

    Hello SENIORS! This is a final reminder to submit your Senior Portrait and personal statements by December 4. Again, please look over the simple guidelines below:

    Senior Statements
    • Submit ONE personal statement that is no more than 270 characters in length. Please do your best to not exceed that character amount, otherwise we’ll have to edit it down, and that will take away from it really being your own. Also, please don’t use any inside jokes or remarks. If you have to second-guess whether or not it should be written, then it probably shouldn’t be. We don’t want anything that’s questionable.
    • NOTE: A “character” is any letter, punctuation, or space. If you left click on the word count in the bottom of the document you’re typing, it’ll show you the count for “Characters with Spacing,” and that’s what you want to keep to 270. If you’re typing on a GoogleDoc, your Word Counter is under “Tools” in the top left menu bar.
    • We are NOT going to ask you to list the activities you participated in throughout your years at Gilmour. If they were/are important to you, please include them within your personal statement; this includes any sports, or other school-sanctioned activities.
    SENIOR STATEMENT EXAMPLES 
    • “And if you never stop when you wave goodbye/You just might find if you give it time/You will wave hello again” (John Mayer) Thank you teachers, family & friends for all the memories & relationships over my 14 years here. I have been guided by you every step of the way. (270 characters)
    • My 10 years here have been amazing, filled with unforgettable teachers, memorable athletic events, and great friends. I am truly blessed with caring parents and grandparents. I would like to thank everyone for supporting me through my triumphs and learning experiences. (269 characters)
    Senior Portraits
    • Dress Code Guidelines: Girls: no skirts/dresses more than two inches above the knee, no crop tops, no strapless tops; Boys: faces must be clean shaven, no tank tops, and hair should be cut above the shoulder. 
    • Outside photographers (other than Venditti Studios) are permitted. However, students need to remember that they’re representing Gilmour Academy, and they need to follow dress code guidelines.
    • This year, BOTH landscape (horizontal) and portrait (vertical) photos will be accepted, but please note that the photo may have to be cropped in order to fit properly.
    • Sending in your photo: If you used Venditti, they will send your chosen portrait directly to me in the yearbook office, but if you use an outside photographer, your selected photo needs to be emailed in high resolution and large enough dimensions to cesark@gilmour.org.
    Again, we will be accepting portraits and statements until 12/4. When you have them completed, please send both the statement and the portrait in an email to cesark@gilmour.org with your name in the email subject line. 

    If you have any questions, please direct them to Ms. Cesar at cesark@gilmour.org or Mr. Overman at overmanj@gilmour.org. We look forward to receiving your portraits and statements!
