A Message from the Principal

Welcome back to school. We are celebrating our return to the 2018/19 school year with a great start. Returning to Grand Oaks this year has been a welcome relief to the adventures of this past summer. The stability that the school year brings helped students, staff and parents return to some much needed normalcy.

    The staff prepared for the return of the students with a combination of academic preparation and personal reconnecting. We spent our preservice days sharing our stories from the summer and laughing together. Some of these same strategies were used once students returned to ease them back into the academic focus we have for this year. This recipe of mixing academics and developing relationships has been a big factor in the seamless start to the school year. 

    I would like to express a big thank you to all of the stakeholders that helped make this a smooth return to school. The staff did a fabulous job welcoming our students and parents. The students continue to express their interest in coming to school day in and day out. Finally, thank you to the parents that have made it a priority to get your kids to school on time every day.

    It was great to see the families that attended Back to School Night.  It is also great to see the numerous volunteers as well as those individuals that signed up to help in the classrooms and to help at the Harvest Festival. If the first few weeks are a prediction to rest of the school year, I predict this to be our best year ever. Keep up the good work.
