“Every Student, Every Day, Every Classroom”
March 22, 2019
Dear School and Community Friends,
Spring has definitely arrived and we are in the final semester of the school year. It’s hard to believe we only have three months left. I want to THANK YOU for all of your continued support of our children and schools. We greatly value your partnership and continued investments in the future of Granite Falls through educating our children.
Conference week is March 25-29. I spend time in classrooms every day watching our students grow academically, physically, socially, and emotionally. I am so proud of their accomplishments this year. Parent/Student/Teacher conferences is a time for reflection on what it is to be a learner, become more aware of the required standards, and the way students demonstrate mastery of those standards. We appreciate the partnership that home and school provide our children so that one day they will become happy and productive adults.
I am excited about the many positive changes and headfirst movement that the upgrades throughout the district will bring to our community and students. The STEAM project has been completed, and the Granite Falls Middle School will be hosting an open house which includes a spaghetti dinner prepared and served by students starting at 5:00 PM, as well as guided tours which start at 6:00 PM of the new building. We invite you to attend the open house on April 25.
Are you a graduate of the Granite Falls School District or school district staff? You can join the Granite Falls Alumni! The next Alumni Foundation meeting is March 26 at 6:45 PM held at the town library. This year they will be giving $30,000 in scholarships for our youth during Scholarship and Awards Night on May 29. Come be a part of the Granite Falls Alumni Foundation. We would love to have you join us.
I look forward to seeing you at all the spring events! Check out the district calendar on the website for upcoming activities and come out and support the Granite Falls Tigers. Spring break will be April 1-5 this year. Have a wonderful and safe spring break with your children. I hope you are able to build lasting memories. Thanks again for your support.
