• Welcome to Virginia Grainger Elementary School

    Happy Spring!


    On March 17th we took our 4th grade Math Is Cool team to Wenatchee. The team placed 3rd overall, competing in the Elite Division. I was very proud of the team's academic performance and for the way they represented our community while traveling. Thank you also to Coach Thornton!


    In May we will begin Smarter Balanced Assessments for our students in reading and math for grades 3-5. 5th grade begins May 1st for science. 3rd- 5th will be testing for math on May 11-12th. 3rd-5th ELA testing will be May 17-19th. Please schedule any appointments after school or outside this testing window. Our students have worked very hard and are well prepared. We appreciate your support and encouragement through this window.


    Safety Reminder: Please remember when dropping off or picking up students that we do not park in the bus lane on the West side of the street. Please also be aware of the parking signs on the East side near the crosswalk. This keeps our busses moving and improves line of site for our crossing guards. Please also remember that staff arrive and our doors open at 7:30 am. For their safety, students shouldn’t be dropped off early.  Thank you for the support and safety for all!


    First Friday Coffee will be held on April 14th. Mark your calendars for this time from 8:20-9:00am. April’s focus topic will Skyward Family Access and cover ways to support your child before and during our testing windows. This is a great time for questions and answers along with sharing the many positives we have in our school. I look forward to seeing you there.


    Enjoy your spring vacation and help us make April the greatest learning month to date. Continue to make time for reading practice and review math homework. I appreciate every family’s support with this goal at home.


    Working together,
