Welcome to Grissom Elementary School, home of the Astros!
We serve approximately 530 students preschool through 5th grade. High expectations for all students and staff have been established, and our goal is to create a strong partnership between teachers, staff, students and families. Working together, we are building a strong foundation where learning will occur.
Grissom has a wide range of educational programs with five special education classrooms, a preschool classroom, and 18 general education classrooms. We promote inclusion, acceptance and kindness for all students. We use Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS), 8-Steps for Improvement and Northwest Evaluation Association (NWEA) testing to ensure that we are meeting the academic needs of ALL Grissom students to help them be the best they can be.
I am so thankful for the outstanding community partners who work with our students and families. Glad Tidings Church, Ball State University, Meridian Health Services and Center Stone Counseling work tirelessly to provide support to our students and their families. Our partnerships help to mold students into positive, productive members of society - people we are proud to call Astros.
Grissom is a special school where exciting things are happening, and I feel fortunate to be part of the team.
