Welcome Grapeland Families!

GREAT Grizzlies...

Go Above and Beyond
Are Ready to Learn
Show Empathy for Others
Strive for High Academic Achievement
Are Team players!

Our last GREAT Grizzly Assembly for the year will be held Friday, May 19th! We will recognize students who exemplify "Teamwork" and those students selected as Lunch with the Principals for their growth in a particular area. Come join us!

IMPORTANT REMINDERS***
Every Monday will be a minimum day and school will be dismissed at 1:15 p.m. Regular dismissal time, Tuesday through Friday, is 2:45 p.m.

Drop-off Procedures and Times -- students should arrive at school no earlier than 7:45 a.m. Each morning at 7:45 a.m. we will open the gate north of the office building. At 8:13 a.m. when the school bell rings, students should find their classroom number painted on the hard court concrete and wait there until their teacher arrives.

Student Safety during Drop-off and Pick-up – Safety is always our first concern and we MUST work together to ensure safe passage. The yellow curb immediately in front of the school is the ONLY place students may exit your vehicle. Continue to move forward along the yellow curb until the line of cars has come to a complete stop before allowing your child to exit or enter your car.

Please allow for some extra time and bring your patience during this typically high traffic, and high student density time. NOTE – the bus turn around will be blocked off and is not a location for student drop-off or pick-up; however, it may be open for school events—Awards assemblies, etc.

What a GREAT Year!

GRAPELAND ELEMENTARY SCHOOL- Grapeland’s staff and students exceeded our expectations once again, exemplifying what it means to be GREAT!

Our Grizzlies Go above and Beyond, come each day Ready to learn, show Empathy for others, strive for high Academic Achievement and work as Team to accomplish their goals! We had several hundred parents attend our PRO Nights (Parents ‘R Onboard) this year to partner with us and learn what our students experience each day. Whether it was primary literacy, STEAM, or PE fitness, our families enjoyed time together while learning at the same.

Our fall and spring fundraisers were once again a huge success and will continue to help fund our vision for the coming 2017-18 school year. Many thanks go out to our PTA for the continued support of our students through reading, music, choir, technology, assemblies, and before/after school programs. We had many Reflections entries showcasing the love of visual and performing arts.

Our TK-5 STEAM program was a huge success this year as students participated in several project-based learning experiences and we sent our first ever science Olympiad team to a high level competition. B.O.B. and B.O.B Jr. were all very successful events for our students which offered something for everyone.

It feels great to continue the fun and educational experiences that have made Grapeland a very special place throughout the years; and we are excited to look forward to new adventures as a school community in 2017-18. Together, we will continue to forge ahead into new territory while upholding the traditions that have made Grapeland a G.R.E.A.T. place to be!
