Welcome to Grissom Memorial Elementary School
Coming Soon! Early Registration For All Grissom Stundents
We will have early registration for all Grissom students. All students, whether you are a returning Grissom student or a new student to Grissom, will need to come in and get registered for next school year. Parents: Be prepared to come in and complete beginning of the year paperwork and when you finish, you and your student will receive a ticket for a FREE hot dog & drink and will be entered in a free raffle drawing that will take place on the first day of school. Coming in early will help us to have your's contact information updated correctly in the computer when school begins. Parents who do not come in during the early registration period will receive an enrollment packet on the first day of school (Wednesday, August 3th) but we would like for all parents to come in during this special registration time. New students from outside MCS schools will need to bring in verification that you live in the Grissom district, shot records, social security card and birth certificate and we will make copies of these forms for you. New Kindergartners who completed paperwork during the kindergartner period will only need to come in and complete beginning of the year paperwork. New Kindergartners who DID NOT come in during the kindergarten registration period will need to bring in the above information and complete paperwork. New Students from other MCS schools will only need to bring in something to verify that you live in the Grissom's district, i.e., bill, lease, etc. Hope to see you all on August 4Th!

MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
RESPECT FOR ALL
DOING WHAT IS BEST FOR KIDS!
As we continue through the educational journey with the students at Grissom Elementary School, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff, parents, community partners, and students for making Grissom a destination for learning and enrichment. Wonderful things happen every day for the students at Grissom. This happens because of the dedication of a staff that provides a safe and inviting climate to help students reach their potential. Each day, students come to school eager to learn. I strive to visit classrooms daily and am inspired by the growth of our students - both academically and socially. Our students show respect for others and, in turn, receive the respect they so richly deserve. This allows for an atmosphere focused on instruction and the ability to get the most out of each school day.
I am honored to be your principal. Together we are "DOING WHAT IS BEST FOR KIDS!" If you have concerns or suggestions, please stop by or call the office at 747-5401.
Mrs. Dea Young, Principal
