News & Information

The mission of the Granite Falls School District is to inspire and facilitate a passion for life-long learning and the pursuit of excellence in every student, every day.


Important Happenings:

November Conferences
All schools have parent/teacher conferences scheduled during the last weeks of November, prior to Thanksgiving. Please review your individual school schedule here.

Community Survey
The district is running the annual community survey from Mid-November to Mid-December and we would like your feedback! We are trying to get as much feedback as possible from parents, students, and volunteers. Please take a moment to complete the survey by going here. There will be chromebooks set up at each school during conference week to assist in participation. We desire to hear your opinion and get your feedback on how we are doing as a district so that we can improve our services and learning opportunities to the children in our community.

Teen Events at Granite Falls Library
Want to make Granite Falls YOUR library? Join us for our monthly Teen Advisory Group and tell us what you think! Meet new people, discuss teen concerns, help us develop programs, and discover what the library has to offer- all while earning volunteer hours and having fun. Contact the Granite Falls Sno-Isle library for more information (360.691.6087). For a list of upcoming events in November, please visit here.
