Greetings Grapeland Families,I am honored to serve as the new principal of Grapeland Elementary. Grapeland has a reputation of academic excellence, and I am blessed to join a culture focused on student learning, a commitment to high expectations, and great community support. It is my intention to continue to champion these important values and uphold the traditions that have made Grapeland every child's favorite place to be!I am aware of the anticipation and eagerness that accompanies new leadership; change can bring about anxiety for us all. Rest assured, it is my highest priority to get to know each student and their families, to listen attentively, and then work collaboratively with our staff and school community to provide the highest level of support for all.Parents, teachers, support staff, and community members, each have an important role in encouraging and inspiring our children to become active, life-long learners equipped for the 21st century. To this end, it is my sincere desire to provide expanded opportunities for our students to acquire the necessary skills to become productive citizens both locally and globally. Our children deserve the very best support in this ever-changing world, and we all have the privilege to be part of making this happen. These are exciting times!Thank you for supporting our PTA with your time and membership! I encourage you all to join and volunteer. There are many opportunities to get involved, both small and large, and your support is one of the best ways to serve our students directly.Respectfully,Joe Shaw
