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.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Dea Young, Principal


Attendance Procedures

Please remember that it is very important for your child to arrive at school on time each day. The doors open at 8:00 a.m. When students arrive they can either go to the gym to wait or to the cafeteria for breakfast. The first bell rings at 8:20 a.m. for students to go to class. The tardy bell rings at 8:30 a.m. Students arriving after 8:30 a/m. are counted tardy.                                                                                                                                                                    If students accumulate 8 tardies for the year, CPS is notified. Please make sure that your student arrives in plenty of time to get to class.
