We hope your 2017 summer break has been fun and relaxing! The Etiwanda
School District's theme for this year is "Learning is our Superpower!"
As we begin to plan another exciting year, we thought it would be helpful to 
provide some general information before we officially plug in. Here is an 
update to our staff as we bid farewell to a few and welcome the new.

Mrs. George has moved to David W Long Elementary School and will be teaching
kindergarten. Mrs. Melillo has transferred to Etiwanda Intermediate School to
teach sixth grade. Thank you for your service you two! Good luck to
you Mrs. George and Mrs. Melillo!

We welcome Sharon Whitney (4th), Sylvia Fernandez, (2nd), and Sarah McCloud 
(3rd) to our Grapeland superhero alliance! They are welcomed additions to our 

We are excited for the connections that will be made this school year and
reconnections with those that have made Grapeland. We will be powered up and 
so excited to see you all very soon. The first day of school is a minimum day 
Monday, August 7th. Back to School Night is that evening with classroom 
visitations beginning at 6:15 PM.

Do not forget to support Grapeland's PTA. There are many chances to 
volunteer and give monetarily to this great organization. We have many 
assemblies planned and exciting learning opportunities for all, supported by 
your generous donations.
