Welcome to Grissom Memorial Elementary School
2014-2015 Athletic Physicals
On April 21st the Muncie Community Schools will offer athletic physicals for all 5th graders in preparation for next year’s athletic season. All athletes will need to have an athletic physical on file with the school to play sports during the 2014-2015 school year. Cost is $10. There is no charge if your child qualifies for free or reduced lunch. Physical forms are available at your child’s elementary school. The form needs to be completely filled out and returned to the nurse by Monday April 21st. This physical will be good for the entire 2014-2105 school year at either Muncie Northside or Muncie Southside Middle Schools.

School Closings and Delays
Community Schools makes every effort to notify school families in the
event of school closings or a two-hour delay to the start of the school
day. If school is canceled or delayed, we will utilize Honeywell Instant
Alert, our phone and email notification system, and our school website,
www.muncie.k12.in.us, to notify families. In addition, information
will be sent to our local radio stations and the Star Press.
The Indianapolis television stations also will be notified.

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
