Grapeland Elementary 2019-20

Hello Grapeland Families!

I surely hope that your summer is going well and your family is looking forward to another exciting school year. We are under construction, “Building Tomorrow's Leaders Today!” (our theme for the 2019-20 school year.) I cannot wait to hear about your summer adventures starting on day one, Monday, August 5th.

Class assignments for next school year will be available through our district website--with preschool, TK and K assignments available 4:00 PM, Monday July 29th and all other grades available beginning 4:00 PM, Thursday August 1st. 

Parents will need to complete the Data Confirmation Process and review the Parent Handbook in the Aeries Parent Portal prior to looking up their child’s class assignment. Simply, log-in to the Aeries parent portal section of the first page of the website. grp.etiwanda.org

Monday August 5th is the first day of school. Preschool begins on the next day, Tuesday. Our Back-to-School Night is the evening of the first day of school beginning at 5:00 PM and two sessions for classroom visitations beginning at 5:30 PM, excluding preschool. Our school office will open beginning Wednesday July 24th, at 8:00 AM and we ask that you let us know via email or telephone call if you have made other plans for your child's education and will not be attending Grapeland. This helps in creating balanced classes for the fall in all grade levels.

Both pre-school kindergarten orientations are scheduled for Friday, August 2nd.

Kindergarten will be held at 9:00 AM, beginning in the MPR and CLOUDS Preschool at 1:00 PM in the MPR. This is a chance to meet the teachers and learn about the year ahead! School administration will review the parking lot, drop-off and pick-up procedures with our families at each orientation event.

Looking forward to seeing you all!

Joseph Shaw, Principal
Grapeland Elementary School
