Hello Families of Grapeland Elementary School!

It is hard to believe that we are entering the homestretch of the 2015-16 school year. Our staff continues to deliver the best in instruction, providing enriching and engaging lessons day after day. District-wide the teachers recently made a recommendation for the new ELA curriculum to be implemented in the fall. We are excited to see what the new curriculum brings!

Grapeland leadership has begun the planning of the new school year with exciting learning experiences that will include STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, ART, and Math). And with the help of our school community fundraising efforts at the Walk-a-Thon on April 1st, we will be continuing with the many engaging learning opportunities we have always offered along with this new focus. Thank you for supporting our Spring fundraiser! The fundraiser will allow us to continue with fun AR incentives, interactive fieldtrips at each grade level, music class, and more hands-on experiences to meet our LCAP goals.

Powered up for May!

Teachers will be administering the larger SBAC summative assessments this month in grades three through five. These assessments which measure year-end standard mastery in English Language Arts and Math are tied into the state’s testing system, CAASPP. Fifth grade will continue to take the CST/CMA Science test. We believe our students are ready to do well and we ask that you help by encouraging your children to do the following:

1. Encourage your child to get a good night sleep the night before testing.
2. Help ensure your child has a protein-rich breakfast the morning of testing.
3. Have conversations about the testing experience with your child each day.

I appreciate all you do for our school community! Grapeland continues to deliver excellence in education, and I am so thankful for caring and supporting parents. I continue to be amazed of the competent and caring teachers and support staff and thankful for a proactive and professional PTA. Have a safe and enjoyable April!
