“Every Student, Every Day, Every Classroom”


May 8, 2019

Dear School and Community Friends,

It’s hard to believe that we only have 30 days of school left this year!  I am very thankful for your partnership and involvement in your child’s education throughout the 2018-2019 school year.

State assessment is underway and will continue for several weeks. The staff and students work very hard to prepare for these tests. The staff strives to prepare every student, every day, in every classroom to be college and career ready. Our students have grown tremendously since the beginning of the year. During visits to the schools and classrooms throughout the year, I am pleased with the progress I have observed. I continue to be amazed by our students, and the mature qualities that continue to develop such as courteousness, respectfulness, responsibility, perseverance, and honesty. It is great to be a part of such a wonderful community of students, parents, and friends. 

Our teaching staff is truly amazing.  Teacher Appreciation Week is May 6-10, 2019. We have a remarkable team of teachers within the Granite Falls School District working hard every day to guide, nurture, and strengthen our students. Please take a moment during this week to send a quick email or card to a teacher that you know and thank them for the positive impact they have on our students, schools, community, and the future!

The new District Website has gone live as well as the new school sites. We are excited about the new site and all the capabilities that it brings. There are several updates currently being made to streamline the information. If you are unable to find what you are looking for, please contact your school's office or the district office.

Core 24 requires students in classes 2021 and beyond to complete a total of 24 credits to graduate. Students who don’t pass a class are in need of making up credits. Several summer school programs will be offered at the high school which includes English, Math, History, and Technology. Please contact the high school counseling office with any questions.

Spring is here and summer is just around the corner! Now is an excellent time to talk with your children about the importance of finishing the year strong during these last weeks of school.  May and June will be filled with end-of-the-year activities including art shows, awards ceremonies, concerts, and graduations!  I’ll see you soon at one of our many school events!

Sincerely,

Linda R. Hall
Superintendent
