“Every Student, Every Day, Every Classroom”
June 6, 2017
Dear School and Community Friends,
I am extremely proud of our students and their accomplishments this year! Along with the great sense of accomplishments, there is always a touch of sadness at the end of each school year. We cherish the relationships built with all our students and their families. It is an honor to lead such an amazing school district!
The last few weeks of school have been filled with many activities and celebrations. We are very proud of our 127 graduates from GFHS, 49 from Crossroads HS and 10 from our Open Doors Youth Re-engagement Program.
This year’s Scholarship and Awards Night was a great success. The community awarded $55,300 in local scholarships to students from both high schools.
We have successfully completed our first year with the reconfiguration of the elementary schools. We appreciate your patience during the process of change including the adjustments during the year to address transportation timing issues between the two buildings so everything could run smoother.
The bond projects are continuing through the process. The STEAM, Grandstand, and Safety & Security Committees have finalized there ideas and presented them to the Architect. The revised plans are being presented to the board on June 7. We are thrilled about the improvements to our district and upon approval, look forward to sharing the updated plans with you.
Summer Lunch Program will be starting June 21 and ending August 25. Lunch will be served from 12pm to 1pm; Monday through Friday at the Granite Falls Middle School Cafeteria. ALL kids and teens up to age 18 receive FREE meals. The program will be closed on July 4 due to the holiday. Should you have any questions regarding this program, call Viki Perrault at 360-283-4310.
Schools will be closed for the summer months and will reopen the week of August 21. The Administration Office hours will be open from 7:00 am-3:00 pm Monday thru Thursday beginning June 26, 2017. Normal hours will resume August 14, 2017.
Have a safe and enjoyable summer!
