• Welcome to Virginia Grainger Elementary School

    Dear Families,

    November is an exciting and busy month for the elementary school! Veteran’s Day, conferences, and Thanksgiving are just a few of the highlights to look forward to, along with the everyday excitement in the classrooms. We look forward to the month and encourage you to continue to be involved with the school and your student’s schoolwork at home.

    November 10th at 1:00 pm will be our Veteran’s day assembly. This will be open to parents and the community. We look forward to this great opportunity to honor our past and present Veterans in service to our country.

    Conferences will be Nov. 21-22nd. I encourage you to ask questions on how you can support the work of your students and our teachers at home. We will have a short parent compact that is part of our Title compliance and I ask that all parents take the time to complete this. 4th and 5th grades will also be sharing state assessment scores from last spring. Conferences are a wonderful communication opportunity and I look forward to seeing everyone in the building.

    As the weather is changing, I want to remind all families to send their students prepared for the weather. It is definitely time to break out the warm coats, hats, and gloves! Please make sure that you mark your child’s clothing with their name. If you have any needs for items, please let us know how we can support you and your family.

    I will be hosting our First Friday Coffee on Nov.  4th at 8:20-9:00. I will be discussing essential questions every parent should ask at conferences. This is also a great time to ask and answer questions pertaining to our amazing school.  

    Safety: As the weather turns colder, please remember that supervision does not begin before 7:30 am here at Virginia Grainger. For your child’s security please do not drop them off before this time.

    I am looking forward to another great month. Kids, I challenge you to work hard every day, you are a wonderful group of learners and you are doing great things! “You were made to be AWESOME!”
