Grand Mound Elementary

Aiming for High Achievement

Principal’s Message

It has been a great first year for me at GMES! I have enjoyed getting to better know families, staff, students, and the community as a whole throughout the 17-18 school year. I feel fortunate to be part of such a great team that cares so much about our students and families. It is a fabulous place to learn, work, and grow!

The end of the year is very busy as we prepare for our final assessments. At the same time, we are planning fun, end-of-the-year activities as we head into summer vacation. Please watch the calendar on our website and our reader board that is out in front of the school. They have the latest dates on what’s up and coming.

Parents often want to know what they can do to support their children’s growth over the summer. One great way is to be sure to get your children involved in reading. Whether your children are researching about destinations for a summer vacation, studying up on birds they observe in the backyard, or enjoying a new book series, finding fun and meaningful opportunities to read will be a huge benefit to their reading progress. Finding opportunities to keep journals and write about summer adventures or correspond with friends via email contributes to grow in writing as well. Check out our website for links to other learning resources for summer fun!

Thank you for a fabulous year at GMES! We wish our 5th graders the best as they move on to the middle school, and we look forward to seeing our returning students again in the fall. We are also excited about meeting new friends as well as the second grade students join us in the fall. We all hope you have a great spring and summer!
