Welcome back Grissom families!

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!  We are excited to get the new year started.  Our staff has worked super hard to make sure that not only the building is ready for all of the new faces, but our staff is ready too!  We will be welcoming new students and new teachers and we look forward to showing you all of the great things going on at Grissom Elementary.

First off, we will be starting a new technology initiative at Grissom this year.  All students in grades 3-5 will have their own Chromebook computer to use in their classroom each day.  Teachers will begin using a variety of resources in their classrooms to take our instruction to a new level and provide digital literacy to our students alongside our traditional curriculum. 

In our primary grades (K-2), our staff has undergone extensive training over the summer to help make our students stronger readers.  It will be exciting to see the transformation in our students as they learn this very important skill. 

We are also looking forward to partnering with community partners during this upcoming school year. Glad Tidings Church, Destiny Church, and other community agencies will be supporting our many needs throughout the school year.  Watch your email, follow us on Twitter, or watch for information to come home with your students about all of the events made possible because of their wonderful efforts.

We can’t wait to get started and make this year the best one yet!

Educationally yours,
Mrs. Melissa DeWitt, Principal
